Reading Time: 4 minutes

Jane is an average millennial who prefers shopping online for almost anything, apparels included. She comes to your website looking for that perfect little black dress for her weekend party but instead gets caught in a web of irrelevant search results like a black top, blue jeans, and a yellow belt! Frustrated, she gives up her on her search and leaves the website. Wondering what just happened here? Well, if the products on the website are listed incorrectly, the site search will be adversely impacted as well. Therefore, it is not uncommon for retail businesses to experience high bounce rates on the website with low sales conversion – all thanks to the poor search results. To stay ahead in the fierce competition, retailers need to provide exactly what their shoppers want. A smooth shopping experience not only leads to better shopper engagement, but it also develops a brand preference.

Fashion Retail Industry Is Heavily Affected By Poor Quality Data

Poor catalog management plagues the entire fashion retail industry. Why, you ask? There are plenty of reasons. With growing business, brands deal with large volumes of catalogs and labeling every product can be time-consuming. Brands often spend a lot of time, resources and money to manually write titles, tags, descriptions for these products. Manually labeling products is tiresome, sluggish and error-prone. Retailers work in large teams that are spread across locations, working in silos that often leads to a lack of unified understanding of products and relevant categories. Often, merchants and sellers routinely upload products images with bad lighting and busy background, as a result, products are tagged with very low accuracy. So, retailers often face consequences of inaccurate product tagging on their website. Poor catalog management is catastrophic for retailers because it results in delayed product launch and lost sales opportunities.  

Product tagging is invisible, and yet, indispensable – without which the entire gear assembly essentially falls apart. A catalog that has well-labeled tags helps the entire retail value chain – from decreasing costs by automating workflows, to aiding product discovery by helping index products better, leading to more accurate searches (personalized search) on the site. Today, automated catalog management is a new way forward for fashion retailers and e-commerce brands.
