It’s a close relationship that began a decade ago
When Allied – one of the few companies then with a dedicated product content team to author and enrich information for all channels – found that Agility’s PIM was a perfect fit and instrument for the strategic alignment of their business processes. And it’s an alliance that quickly led to dramatic increases in web, print and direct sales.
The ability to run Agility on their existing Microsoft SQLServer environment has not only enabled Allied to develop the most efficient process but has made product information integral to their multichannel business strategy. Agility’s PIM tools and Excel integration programs have slashed the time required for content authoring and approval. And by interfacing their SAP ERP through Agility’s APIs and Content Gateway, Allied has maximized Agility’s functionality, creating a rigorous environment with a single, trustworthy version of truth for all product information.
With Agility, Product Management for Commerce has become key for Allied. Indeed, it is fast becoming the prime model for all U.S. companies in the product realm, where disciplined data preparation is essential for successful web searches and sales.
