inRiver Channable Syndication Connector

The inRiver to Channable Syndication Connector publishes product information available in inRiver channels to product feed management tool Channable.

Solution description

The inRiver to Channable Syndication Connector publishes product information available in inRiver channels to product feed management tool Channable. This way, over 1.000 price comparison websites, affiliate platforms, and marketplaces can be targeted from a single source. Combining inRiver’s strong data modeling capabilities with Channable’s unique filtering, mapping, and transformation functionalities gives marketing departments superpowers. All kinds of custom exports can now be created in a user-friendly environment without the need for IT staff.

The connector creates a secure endpoint that Channable will use to load data from inRiver. The connector is highly configurable using an XSL template, which also takes care of the transformation of the relational model in inRiver to the flat data model used in Channable. Linking to images is done by using inRiver’s Asset Service directly, but preferably also backed by a CDN platform which contains resized / pre-rendered images that are publicly available.

For having a standards-compliant, secured and monitored connection an API Manager (AWS) acts as a broker between the systems. Setup, support, and maintenance(if needed) are provided by inRiver’s platinum partner, XSARUS.
