Beyond Taxonomy - How Manufacturers & Distributors are Innovating in Ecommerce

September 28, 2017

1:00 PM EDT to 2:00 PM EDT 

In the early days of ecommerce, manufacturers and distributors were executing on the basics – building navigation and classification hierarchies was a major effort. Though always a work in progress and never a trivial effort, building effective hierarchies is guided by straightforward principles. But, taxonomies are more than navigation hierarchies and can be leveraged to drive advanced capabilities. In our next executive roundtable, the panel discussion will address the challenges in building more powerful capabilities based on a foundation of a well-constructed taxonomy.

Topics to be covered include:

  • How are manufacturers and distributors using taxonomies to improve site search?
  • How are taxonomies used in merchandising – assessing product mix and grouping products for specific targets or solutions?
  • How do taxonomies help with personalization?
  • How are part relationships managed and presented?
  • How are multi-tiered product entity models like base-variant being leveraged to improve data management, reporting and navigation?

We’ll explore these topics and more on September 28th at 1:00pm Eastern.
