Integration of Akeneo v.1 into the Snow Queen Infrastructure
Snow Queen is Russia's largest chain of multi-brand fashion stores, an expert in leather and fur outerwear trade and manufacture.
It was necessary to improve the Product Category section, add the function of product category status change and provide the mass upload of photo content, set up the product status display by cities, and integrate KAIS with the PIM system for the conversion of numeric and alphabetic code numbers into comprehensible designations for the e-commerce shop.
Due to seasonal changes of product collections on the website, Snow Queen needed constant updates in the Main Product Categories with the subsequent product shift into the Outlet category. As a rule, the PIM system only allows changing the category of one specific product. Improvements to the PIM system gave an opportunity to add, transfer and delete products in specific categories. Thus, seasonal collection changes have been implemented much faster.
By default, the PIM system does not support the display of category status. Our developers have implemented the opportunity of the category status control, with its data being transmitted directly to Magento.
PRODUCT CATEGORY STATUS
The customer used to rely on KAIS for the internal use of product information. This system complicated the data edit process, as all information was displayed in a technical language.
During the integration of KAIS data with the PIM system, our developers added an algorithm that allowed the conversion of numerical and alphabetic designations of code numbers into a comprehensible language for the e-commerce store.
The ecommerce store integration with the PIM system allowed the connection of products from several categories.
Thus, the Look category promoted the sales of several products at once, instead of a single product.
By default, PIM system allows you to upload one photo at a time. Our developers added the opportunity of mass photo upload and download for further processing, as well as of specifying which product photo will be displayed on the website as the main photo, and which will appear when pointing on a product with the mouse cursor.
PHOTO CONTENT ON THE WEBSITE
The customer wanted to make the product status – in stock or out of stock – visible in the PIM system.
By integrating the PIM system with Elastic, our developers provided the opportunity of displaying information about product's availability by cities in the PIM system.
DISPLAYING PRODUCT AVAILABILITY BY CITIES
