VendorNet Launches SKU Space™ Product Catalog Management Technology

08:00 EDT Tuesday, July 30, 2013

BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. (Business Wire) -- VendorNet® Inc., an eBay Enterprise company, and leading provider of omnichannel fulfillment and supply chain management technologies, today announced the launch of SKU Space™, a virtual product catalog management solution. SKU Space synchronizes and automates the exchange of product data between retailers and dropship vendors to create a virtual marketplace to drive new business relationships and increase customer satisfaction with speed to market for new products.

A multi-tenant, cloud-based solution, SKU Space automates the upload, exchange, and maintenance of product information and rich data for any product SKU. Through its browser-based web portal, or system-to-system integration, SKU Space exposes data-rich product catalogs and eliminates time-consuming and error-prone manual processes that lead to revenue impacting out-of-sync data.

With robust product categories and item level attributes, SKU Space makes it fast and simple for retailers and vendors to fine-tune their product mix and expand their marketplace. Plus, SKU Space is not limited to VendorNet's existing retail dropship network and client base; any vendor or retailer can leverage the solution to generate new business opportunities.

“With SKU Space, our revenue recognition time decreased by 50 percent. Our retail partners now have accurate product data and inventory levels, eliminating backorders, and increasing the time we can spend helping them sell rather than answering questions about products and inventory. We no longer have to wait weeks for new products to go live. We simply update SKU Space, notify our partners, and the products are online in less than 24 hours,” stated drop ship partner, Joshua Wickander, vice president, sales and marketing, Kendall Howard LLC, an IHG Affiliate.

“The launch of SKU Space by VendorNet, adds another extensible solution to the eBay Enterprise suite of modular commerce technologies,” said Tobias Hartmann, head of omnichannel operations at eBay Enterprise. “SKU Space solves a strategic data accuracy problem and synchronizes relationships between retailers and dropship vendors. Today's consumer wants fast access to detailed product information; SKU Space delivers that data for a great shopping experience while growing the business opportunity for our clients and vendor partners.”
