In the automotive industry, a website can only maximize performance if the data allows it to. Product data serves as the basis for the user-experience shopping the website - categorization, product filters, year-make-model lookup, product fitment, and more.
The Web Shop Manager automotive eCommerce platform integrates seamlessly with SDC (SEMA Data Co-op). The SDC integration saves 1000’s of hours providing access to industry standard (ACES and PIES) product data from 500+ brands and 2.5 million part numbers.
Time Saved, Money Earned
Unlike other industries, aftermarket automotive product data needs to be consistently updated but farming for those updates and then applying them to your website is tedious and worrisome depending on your platform, your expertise, and your bandwidth.
If you’re like most eCommerce businesses, you’d rather spend your time on more strategic initiatives to drive more sales. We can help!
Automotive Data & Shopping Experience
The navigation of the website is only as flexible as the data allows. The Web Shop Manager platform with SDC integration places the user-experience and flow of the website at your fingertips.
As the visitor browses your automotive website, they should have a seamless experience navigating category pages, brand pages, and product pages that make sense. The filters (faceted navigation) should allow shoppers to easily narrow their search. The site search should allow visitors to search by SKU, product title, or product type.
With most non-automotive platforms, this experience is extremely difficult or impossible to create.
