The Necessary Attribute in Product Management Software
Product Management software is no longer a nice thing to have in a retail business. With the multiple channels we now operate in, there is more data to deal with than has ever been encountered in the past. Technology has provided excellent tools for retailers, and just as tools differ in usefulness, so does software.
The screwdriver, for instance, can be a cheap tool that looks good until it snaps under the stress of removing a stubborn screw. Screwdrivers also need to fit the screwhead of that screw, or they are useless. A tool needs to be capable of handling the required job and specific enough to do the job that needs to be done. Software is also a tool that needs to be capable of handling the required job and specific enough to do the job that needs to be done.
User Definable Attributes
Just as specific screws need specific types of screwdrivers, product management software is more effective when it can specifically categorize merchandise. This happens when that software has user definable attributes that the retailer can assign directly to a product. User-defined attributes make it easy to filter and analyze merchandise based on a specific need.
The ChainDrive Product Management component is already equipped with the ability to define attributes, but the retailer who needs a tool that is customized has that service available.
