How Media Elements Enhance E-catalogs

05-09-2012  |  By: Adrecom
E-catalog is a popular way to make the shopping experience very easy for customers. Online shopping has certain perks that shopping at brick-and-mortar stores does not have, such as 24/7 availability and readily-provided information about all topics in the content management system. However, in order to overcome the lack of physical access to tangible items – i.e., the useful tendency of picking up an item and looking at it from all angles – web stores need to make optimal usage of high quality product imagery and other media elements, such as video and flash. This blog post discusses how images and video create are a necessary element of a successful e-commerce product catalog.

B2B Web Presence Renovation

05-03-2012  |  By: Adrecom
At Adrecom, we service a variety of customers in both the B2C (standard business-to-customer model) and B2B (business-to-business) categories. We have carefully and specifically developed the features and applications found in our Back Office to satisfy the business needs of both types of customers. What is largely true about B2B transactions, however, is that their orders and purchases typically involve a larger amount of raw materials. Such companies can make ideal use of our distributor and wholesaler portal, which comes with a tiered pricing model so we have designed our system to make such tiered pricing models and other essential B2B applications plainly visible on the front end as areas of focus.

Product Catalog Management

04-25-2012  |  By: Adrecom
Product catalog management is a multi-tiered process that allows you to store, administer and add, edit and delete new and existing items to and from your e-catalog. Using the Adrecom CMS Suite you can manage your media assets by simultaneously exporting and import multiple catalogs in bulk for backup and storage. Since there are a variety of different elements that can be exported and imported, suffice it to say that the process for each is slightly different for each application. This post will provide the conceptual model to understand how each application is exported from and imported to the back office. While this post delineates the conceptual model by which exports and imports are carried out, it does not itself instruct you how to perform exports and imports. Since the process is somewhat complex, we have written a series of manuals describing how to perform exports and imports rather than creating video tutorials.

Content Management Automation, Uploading Images in Bulk

04-19-2012  |  By: Adrecom

Just as you can upload products in bulk to the Back Office, you can also upload images in bulk, although the process is slightly different.  Let’s say, for example, that your e-catalog contains an order of some 3,000 products, and each one needs an image. One way of assigning an image to each product is to manually insert an image into each product. While this method is the recommended one for inserting images into a relatively small amount of products, such as 5 or 10, there is another, more efficient method for inserting images into a large number of products, such as 20, 50, 100 or 1000.

Uploading Images to the Media Gallery in Bulk

04-18-2012  |  By: Adrecom
A popular demand for many websites is to display a specified page designated for images. This is especially relevant for image-heavy websites, and for such sites it is beneficial to contain all their images in a gallery versus on individual pages. If a site contains a high volume of images, the image pages can number in the 100’s or even higher. A better alternative is to create a gallery, in which each page displays thumbnails of each of the relevant or desired images. When the user clicks on or hovers the cursor over the image, a larger version of that image is displayed in a separate window. This methodology achieves the desired result of displaying a high volume of images while avoiding a high number of image pages.
