Partner story: Mercury Marine
Find out how a unique product data model design and enterprise PIM rollout delivered efficiencies for Mercury Marine.
Mercury Marine is the world’s leading manufacturer of recreational marine propulsion engines. Before working with inriver and Shift7 Digital, Mercury Marine did not have a master system for product information, and several of its acquired parts and accessories divisions had legacy PIM solutions, on a variety of now-unsupported platforms.
These divisions share common parts and have a business need for transparency not only for accessing their own product data, but also for access to each others. Siloed legacy product data brought many challenges including:
Intra-business-unit operations were unable to maintain data standards or accuracy across teams
Complex product categories forced the creation of many unique data structures
Unsupported legacy PIM and Print systems were a risk to business and a maintenance headache to IT
With multiple PIM projects underway, we can now connect PIM to brand websites like MercuryMarine.com, Mercury Racing, and other Brunswick division sites. We also still do a lot of print publishing with an existing system and are now able to enrich product data in PIM before sending to catalogs, making that process more efficient.
