The Elements of the Platform for Retail Engagement
By providing a central Content Hub for all content sources – web content, digital assets, ‘marketing cloud’ campaign content, video, social and User Generated Content and more – the Retail Engagement platform transforms marketing and eCommerce teams’ ability to manage, manipulate and exploit content for every context.
Integrates with existing systems to protect your legacy investments – there’s no need to rip and replace
Liberates content production and management processes from the siloes created by disparate, channel specific content platforms
Enables agile, multi-role collaboration up and down the digital content supply chain
Streamlines workflows by consolidating content stores into a single, cloud library with workspaces that makes it easy for more of the right people to access, author and manipulate commerce-optimized content
Allows all content to be attached to ‘locale groups’, which in turn enables content and commerce teams to localize the customer experience across geographies and regions, from a single content repository
The Content Authoring module moves the presentation layer out of the content and into the device template, to liberate content authoring from restrictions and difficulties related to specific channel formats.
Rather than generating standalone content and media for each and every channel, retailers compose channel-neutral content once, and render it for any format later. This content is stored in the Content Hub as an API for unlimited re-use, remixing and repurposing whenever required.
Amplience features a comprehensive range of user-friendly authoring tools for creating editorial content, shoppable media, product showcases, interactive demos and guided selling
Ecommerce teams can employ a wide range of fit-for-purpose authoring tools, and new tools can easily be created for individual authoring tasks
Unified Analytics capability provides a ‘single pane of glass’ view of content performance across every channel, device and locale
Advanced Dynamic Media APIs enable dynamic control of all media parameters – from media format and file size, to compression – to ensure retailers always deliver the right content experience at the right time, enabling Responsive Web experiences with the right image every time.
Dynamic Media’s powerful scripting capabilities, video transcoding and meta-data combine with the platform APIs to enable automated media ingestion and product media set generation.
Dynamic Media facilitates customer engagement and consistent brand experiences across smart phones, tablets, desktop systems, in-store kiosks and beyond
Media adapts on-the-fly to the customer’s channel of choice at different stages of the customer journey – to always deliver the best possible content experience, regardless of channel or device
Automate Rich Product Media set generation and enable media to flow uninterrupted from studio to site, as powerful scripts build media sets based on metadata
