  • What We Offer

    We believe in digital future where each consumer, retailer, and supplier is able to get comprehensive information about any product online. This information enables parties to make informed decisions about procurement and buying, and therefore significantly speeds up the process of transferring goods from producer to consumer through the supply chain.

     

    Therefore, we provide services such as

  • Our Process

    Stage 1

    We take pictures and measurements (on-site)

    • At the beginning of the SKU lifecycle, we expect to get a sample of the product (trade unit, logistic unit, show-box, multipack, etc.) and take professional photos and measurements.
    • Alternatively, we can use photos and measurements provided by brand owners (in case they meet quality requirements).
    • All input data goes through our quality assurance.
    • After product data is verified, it gets published to the Listex catalogue.

    Our photographers have an average capacity of 150-250 SKU/day.

    Stage 2

    We retouch and improve product images (off-site).

    • Our photo editors process the images to improve color balance, contrast, brightness, geometry correctness, perspective, etc. 
    • After image processing, two other employees from the retoucher team approve images (as the first step check) and publish them (as a second step check). 
    • The average capacity of a retoucher on our team is 100-150 SKU per day (8 hours).
    • It should be noted that if the supplier has their own high-quality content, we can use it instead.

    Stage 3

    We attribute products (off-site).

    • Our system can handle relations of any number of products to any number of categories in any number of category trees. We maintain (whenever it’s possible) category trees for all users of our system (retailer, supplier and others).
    • Our content managers describe products by assigning attribute-value pairs for the current product depending on its relations to products categories (as well as belonging to product families and attribute models). 
    • Wherever it is suitable, we use OCR and AI algorithms to capture attribute values, but all such auto-generated content (as well as human-generated content) is going to the moderation pool. Each update in a moderation pool is checked and approved by another moderator. 
    • Finally, a third content manager with a “super-moderator” role publishes all updates. 
    • Through this process of checks and balances, moderators and super moderators are alerted when there are inconsistencies in product data (for example, when the weight of a trade unit multiplied by the number of items in the box is more than the weight of the logistic unit). 
    • Finally, when the product record has all predefined images, measures (optional), and described with all predefined attribute-value pairs, it can be posted to XML-feed via client’s API and such data will be transferred to client’s systems.
  • Our Stats

    We develop and maintain an environment where brand owners, on one hand, and retailers, on the other hand, create, manage and exchange CPG digital assets.
