In this latest release of the Product Information Cloud®, 1WorldSync has added merchandising and sales tools including a sales kit, merchant kit, and a universal content feed solution for all customers.

With this release, 1WorldSync has extended its Walmart integration capability, developed over the last 10 years with the world’s largest retailers, to become a certified Content Service Provider to Walmart, making 1WorldSync the premier global supplier of product content for Walmart (Stores and Walmart.com), from supply chain efficiency to online sales.
• Major Asia Pacific retailer application allows Catalog1 users to learn and then fulfill the product content requirements of the largest department store chain in Japan, using a templated ‘playlist’ of attributes required by this retailer. The app enables completeness and accuracy of content, using smart validations, in addition to the option to publish product content via a direct connection customized to this retailer.
• The Sales Kit app provides businesses with the ability to render their own Digital Catalog(s), mobilizing the product content they have already organized in Catalog1. Sales Kit enables easy creation of selling sheets, catalogs, slicks and other digital sales aids to help drive global sales and customer relationship management operations.
Content1 (For Retailers, eTailers & Merchant App Developers) will include the following new features:
• The Merchant Kit App enables buyers to create their own digital storefronts, including products from the many brands or suppliers they work with, organizing them by category or type as desired. Merchant Kit will also provide simple look up tools for Merchants, to discover the presence of consumer transparency labels, such as the GMA SmartLabel, and use them in their storefronts and eCommerce sites.
• Content Feed allows manufacturers to access their entire product content library through a simple API, and maintain a single source of content to power internal systems or applications such as Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI), Collaborative Planning, Forecasting & Replenishment (CPFR) or internal enterprise portals that make product content available cross-organization.
