LONDON, Ontario--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tech company LBMX Inc. (“LBMX”) announces a significant addition to the Supply Cloud B2B platform giving suppliers and manufacturers the ability to send rich product data and assets to all their customers with one, simple connection. LBMX Supply Cloud, the only true B2B platform that connects suppliers to distributors using a one-to-many architecture, makes it easy to send product data to every customer regardless of size or technical capabilities.
Powered by LBMX’s unique one-to-many architecture, OnePDX ensures suppliers can provide their customers with accurate, up-to-date product information (including images, videos, and support documents). Product data is harmonized and sent to connected ERP and eCommerce sites, delivering a consistent and compelling product experience at every touchpoint.
“When it comes to eCommerce, a distributor’s sales are only as strong as the product data available on the sales site,” says Alison Fulton, Chief Revenue Officer with LBMX. “Much like B2C, today’s B2B customers demand rich product content from the source. Smart manufacturers and suppliers understand the importance of making it easy for distributors to get their product data in a form that they can use.”
Prior to OnePDX, it was expensive and resource intensive for a supplier to provide rich product data to all their customers. Suppliers were plagued by never-ending requests to provide product data in different formats as well as the complexity of maintaining a myriad of connections to multiple eCommerce platforms. Even with a Product Information Management (PIM) system in place, the challenge of supporting customers of various sizes and technical capabilities does not go away.
“The great thing about OnePDX,” says Tom Jones, Vice President of Research and Development with LBMX, “is that you don’t have to replace your current PIM provider, if you have one. You have the product content and want to get it in the hands of all your distributor customers easily, in formats specifically designed for import into their ERP and eCommerce systems. A single connection with OnePDX does that - this is a game changer for eCommerce.”
Perhaps most importantly, this technology ensures suppliers will be able to populate their customer’s ERP and eCommerce systems with their valid source data. No longer will their distributor customers be forced to rely on an unauthorized facsimile of key supplier data that was scraped from the web.
OnePDX has been made available on LBMX Supply Cloud, joining sophisticated EDI, PIM, Payment, and Analytics applications.
