What does classifying B2B catalogs mean ?

To classify your product catalogs, it helps to have them in BMEcat format already. However, you can classify product catalogs of various formats if they contain the product information required for the classification. There are different classification systems you can use to classify your product data. The most common systems include:

ETIM

ECLASS

UNSPSC

–>      International Standard for Master Data and semantics (goods & services)

–>      European Technical Information Model

–>      United Nations Standard Products and Services Code

ETIM –>           International Standard for Master Data and semantics (goods & services)

ECLASS –>      European Technical Information Model

UNSPSC –>     United Nations Standard Products and Services Code

These associations stand for a standardized product communication for buyers, sellers and anyone dealing with product information. The ultimate goal is to speak the same language and give you the ability to reduce cost, time and energy spent with data processing and exchange. Using these data standards can result in better product rankings ensuring more sales, revenue and security in planning.

Once your product catalog is classified your products will have a unique ID for your buyers to find immediately. All it needs is to search for the ID and the product can be added to your cart.

This way you improve the strategic basis for decision-making because data is harmonized, prepared in a meaningful way and shared with your customers and partners.

What does reclassifying B2B catalogs mean?

If you asked yourself if you need to choose one of the classification systems above and need to stick with it forever, the answer is no. You can use your newly classified ECLASS catalog and reclassify to another system like ETIM on-the-fly. e-proCAT provides you with a powerful reclassifying engine so this can be done with ease.
