We are pleased to announce that our Oporteo Product Information Management (PIM) system has been shortlisted at this year’s UK Ecommerce Awards. This annual event, hosted by Don’t Panic, celebrates the very best in ecommerce and online retailing from across the UK.
Launched in October 2018, Oporteo PIM is a solution for wholesalers struggling to keep on top of the increasing volume of data they need to collate and publish. It is an extension of BCP’s Oporteo Ecommerce Platform and consolidates a wide range of product data into a central hub. It is designed to help businesses record the increasing amount of information that they need to collate, display and meet regulations.
Andy Pratt, Business Development for Oporteo, said: “The growth in product information is a big problem because most back-office systems cannot hold all the attributes, images and descriptions businesses now need to comply with regulations and meet customer demands.”
Oporteo discovered that for many of their clients this results in proliferation of spreadsheets, databases and filing systems to work around the problem. They set about to develop the Oporteo PIM System to overcome these problems.
Speaking about the shortlist, Andy said “Oporteo PIM represents BCP’s continued investment and commitment to helping businesses overcome the challenges of digital transformation. We are proud that Oporteo PIM has been shortlisted amongst the best of ecommerce and online retailing.”
