Streamlining content creation and distribution to create compelling product descriptions & catalogs

For a thriving business, keeping pace with all product data is a real challenge. We are talking about creating and syndicating content for channel-specific product listings, data (descriptions, expiration dates, ingredients, etc) for product labels, online and print catalogs, and product sheets for partners. 

By integrating tools such as KatanaPIM and Simple Workspace, you can automate and streamline product content creation and distribution, and let the software do the hard work for you.

Simple Workspace is the production tool for marketing departments that need to produce diverse and ever-changing content, the output of which can be published or used by sales teams and partners.

In order to fully benefit from the power of publishing, it is essential to have a structured database when it comes to product information. This is where KatanaPIM comes in, working as a single source of truth for product information that helps you collect, enrich, validate and distribute the right data on the right channels.

Automation is a great way to streamline your business processes and make them more efficient. By integrating these tools into your business, you will bring to your team, your clients, and your organization multiple advantages.


Gathering and centralizing product information has never been easier. Thanks to automated and simple import features, KatanaPIM and Simple Workspace let you quickly upload your product information from different formats such as Excel Sheets, CSV, or FTP and make sure all of this data is centralized, structured, and ready to be enriched and distributed on your online channels, catalogs or labels.

Once the information system is connected to a production platform such as Simple Workspace, publication projects are the best way to give meaning to the work on data quality. The principle of this approach is based on the need for qualitative data that results from the publication project, generally triggered by the marketing department. After that the information has been provided or is present in KatanaPIM, the publication generation/correction process can begin to create any type of publication.
