Product Content Management In Your Rearview: A Look Back And A Look Forward

Hide your stocking stuffers and savor those sips of eggnog..2018 is almost here! A lot happened in 2017. Amazon bought Wholefoods, Alibaba grew in America, companies like Tyson and P&G launched SmartLabel initiatives and so much more.

Technology now penetrates nearly every aspect of our lives and the industry continues to shift  in major ways as consumers demand more information faster. Despite uncertainties, this year in commerce shattered records, giving retailers reason to rejoice.

In order to look forward, it’s important to look back at the past year. And in this case, we’re reflecting on 2017 key events that took place that will likely shape 2018.

  1. Amazon: Prime-Time For The Grocery Industry

With the acquisition of Whole Foods Amazon sends a clear message to grocers that it is ready to play and, at least partly e-commercialize the grocery game. They’ve already dipped their toes in food and grocery in the past through Amazon Fresh and Amazon Pantry, but this gives them more robust access to high-quality food and more power to delivery grocery products more immediately to customers. It is also a bold statement that Amazon is serious about brick-and-mortar and at the same time this step finally fully validates cross-channel commerce as the future of grocery.

As the lines between online and in store have blurred, Amazon has realized that location will be a key driver for commerce success. Having access to Whole Foods’ 431 existing stores, gives them valuable distribution centers to bring fresh, localized products directly to customers. Amazon was also likely motivated to reach Whole Foods’ millennial audience and develop loyalty with the younger, more quality-conscious consumer.

  1. To Marketplace, To Marketplace

Last year, shoppers did half of their online spending through marketplaces, and that could rise to two-thirds in five years, according to a report released by Forrester Research (RetailDive 2017).

At the heart of this surge to online purchasing are marketplaces, such as Amazon,  Alibaba, Google and Walmart.com which are creating a new era of many-to-many shopping opportunities for the B2B  and B2C market.

“We look at marketplaces as the new retail battleground,” Jenn Markey, Vice President of Marketing at retail strategy firm 360pi. “For the retailers that embrace them, it creates an endless aisle online without the traditional costs. But even Amazon is experiencing that it can be the Wild Wild West. The challenge is that some vendors are more legitimate than others.” (Retail Dive 2017).

Marketplaces have the potential to help your products reach millions of new, global customers and 1WorldSync has you covered! It’s time for your products to be discovered by more buyers on the world’s largest marketplaces.

  1. Walmart and Google Partner To Make Shopping Easier

Google and Walmart recently announced a new partnership whereby Walmart customers will be able to access hundreds of thousands of products from the company’s shelves via the online retailing service Google Express, an online marketplace where customers can purchase and set up delivery from stores like Target and Walgreens (Walmart 2017).

Walmart products will also be available through the Google Assistant and Google Home smart speaker, which competes with Amazon’s Echo. Walmart’s network of 4,700 U.S. stores and its fulfillment networks offer a competitive differentiator over Amazon offering  attractive omni-channel options including click-and-collect while Google has deeper artificial intelligence (AI) expertise and a huge pool of new data which would allow them to leverage personalization through targeted ads.

Happy Holidays! Tis The Season For Trusted Product Content

As Halloween passes and the smell of Pumpkin Spice surrounds you, you see Christmas decorations appearing in stores. We say it every year, “Already, it’s the beginning of November?” Stores seem to remind us earlier and earlier every year that Christmas is coming.

The shopping season has already kicked off, 30% of shoppers plan to do holiday shopping between Halloween and Thanksgiving (Forbes 2017). It is no longer a Friday & Monday sales event, but a week plus long shopping extravaganza, online and in-store.

As the Christmas decorations light up the streets and stores. We get ourselves ready for family dinners at thanksgiving. Retailers are preparing for their biggest few months of the year with what started as a single shopping day in Black Friday and has transformed into over a week of consumer frenzy shopping.

For years, the Black Friday trend was huge competition for retailers to provide the best deals to bring consumers in the store. Consumers would burn off the prior day’s feast by fighting through crowded lines, battling traffic and in many cases darting into store after to store to avoid the cold weather.

Lazy Black Friday

Why would you go through that when Siri and Alexa can do it for you? Over the past several years Cyber Monday has become the online version of Black Friday shopping. Many thought it would only be a trend, but online holiday retail sales will grow by 12% in 2017, accounting for over one-quarter of total US e-commerce sales for the year (Forrester 2017).

We used to wake up from our food comas at 5am in order to make it to the many stores who would open early or even open on Thanksgiving Day. With the growth of online shopping, many stores have begun the opposite trend of staying closed on Thanksgiving in-order to focus on online sales.

Consumers are no longer relying on Black Friday to get their shopping done as there are an abundance of online specials enticing them to stay at home. Online holiday sales are predicted to break the $100 billion mark in 2017 after Cyber Monday 2016 became the biggest day in the history of U.S. e-commerce and 2017 could top that with a predicted $5 billion in sales. (Adobe 2016).   

No matter if you stay in and shop online or venture into the stores this year, retailers will do everything they can to keep you shopping the entire season.

Compete With Trusted Product Content Consumers Can Count On

60% of shoppers use their phones to do research even when in store to look up product information, do price comparisons and check online reviews (Retail Dive 2017). Consumers expect rich and trusted product content on all channels: desktop to mobile. Getting accurate and detailed product information in front of consumers is crucial.

1WorldSync believes that trust and transparency are key components that account for a successful transaction.

Spooky Halloween Trends Throw Retailers Financial Treats

Trick or treat, smell my feet, give me something transparent to eat! Halloween is creeping up on us as an abundance of candy, costumes, and décor flood websites and local convenience and retail stores with endless Halloween specials.

For a majority of candy companies, Halloween is their highest revenue earning time of the year. 2017 is projected to reach a 5.5% increase in Halloween candy sales, making it the strongest rise since 2011. In fact, sales are estimated to reach $9.1 billion, according to the National Retail Federation (USA Today, 2017).

When, where, and what are consumers buying this Halloween?

Of the 179 million celebrants expected to participate in Halloween this year, 43.6% of people are going to begin shopping in the first two weeks of October (NRF, 2017). That means retailers and especially candy companies should begin setting up their Halloween discounts and value bundles to successfully hit their sales numbers.

Approximately 65% of people will find their treats online or in-store; spending the most on costumes. $3.4 billion will be spent on costumes followed by $2.7 billion on candy and decorations (NRF, 2017).

Whether or not they’re in the mood for a sweet tooth, consumers each Halloween attempt to source out the cheapest way to participate by finding the best deals. Retailers and conveniences stores like Walmart, Five Below, or the Dollar Tree are going to be the most visited stores because they focus on offering consumers the best value with the best prices.

What does this mean for retailers this holiday season?

Consumers are looking for the best deals where they can get a big bang for their buck. A survey found that 47% of buyers are planning to attend discount stores and speciality stores to find what they need (USA Today, 2017). As a retailer, start preparing those markdown offerings because consumers are going to be on the look-out for those early bird promotions.

The sales retailers make this Halloween season will set a precedent for how they will do this holiday season. Forrester Research projects that online sales will reach an astounding 12% increase making this holiday season look optimistic for companies who have struggled during this spooky season in previous years (USA Today, 2017).

So you must be thinking, what is causing Halloween sales to reach an all new high?

The success in the economy recently has played an influential factor in why consumers are willing to spend a little more than previous years. The decrease in gasoline prices and unemployment as well as wage increase are the leading economic factors into why consumers are indulging in the Halloween spirit this year (Forbes, 2016).

Wal-Mart continues to broaden its online assortment, appealing to more third-party sellers and accelerating the attainment of their stated ambition to add 1 million products a month to their digital shelf.”

Are you ready to get your products onto Walmart’s digital shelf?

Marketplaces that succeed are committed to brand integrity and complete product information. Walmart stands behind this vision understanding that complete and accurate product content drives sales conversion and is critical on the path to purchase.

For this reason, they require a certain amount of product attributes to be sent to them in order to best listed on their .com marketplace. While some of the product attributes they ask for are basic such as product name, others like Shelf Description are unfamiliar territory for many merchants.

What is the difference between a gorilla and a mouse?

In short a lot.

I’m not talking about Harambe vs Ratatouille, this is about the big box stores we all grew up with vs the online shopping universe. However in the world of retail today, writers, pundits and advocates are focused on how the mouse is being agile and changing, while the gorilla is the past. It is hard to argue against this when you see the Chapter 11 filings and job cuts that have hit the retail sector. When you look at the big picture, those gorillas still generated a ton of revenue in the past 7 months, and several of them are proving to be as agile as any mouse.

Let’s for a moment look at the grocery space. Companies like Kroger, Walmart, Albertsons and Target are all “preparing for war” or “staring down the Amazon barrel”. Interesting quotes, but in truth does the Amazon machine have the footprint in place to dominate the grocery space like they did with books?

The American consumer is still spending a tremendous amount of their hard earned dollars at physical stores. Of the $611.9 billion grocery-store industry business, in 2016 Wal-Mart controlled 14% of U.S. food and grocery market share. While Kroger had 7%, Whole Foods had 1.21% and Amazon was under 1%. Many are predicting those numbers to change drastically in the next few years. (Marketwatch 2016).

There is a David and Goliath battle erupting in the retail industry where small to mid size retailers are encouraged to adopt giant-killing tactics in a bid to grow their brands. We covered a similar topic in our e-book  ‘Battle of the Brands: David vs. Goliath’ that includes strategies on how to move quick to capture new eCommerce market share.

Keeping an eye on the mouse is one thing. Calling it the victor is another.

Walmart and Google Take on Amazon!

Google and Walmart announced last week a partnership that is starting next month. Walmart customers will be able to access hundreds of thousands of products from the company’s shelves via the online retailing service Google Express, an online marketplace where customers can purchase and set up delivery from stores like Target and Walgreens.

Walmart products will also be available through the Google Assistant and Google Home smart speaker, which competes with Amazon’s Echo. Walmart shoppers can link their customer accounts to Google and get personalized recommendations.

Walmart & Google: Powerful Alone. Better Together

Clearly, the two companies are combining their strengths to take on Amazon. Separately, the companies have had little success drawing shoppers aways from Amazon in the ecommerce space.

Walmart’s network of 4,700 U.S. stores and its fulfillment networks offer a competitive differentiator over Amazon offering an attractive omni-channel options including click-and-collect while Google has deeper artificial intelligence (AI) expertise and a huge pool of new data would allow them to leverage personalization through targeted ads.

Walmart and Google have combined their strengths to battle it out on the online retail market. Walmart’s huge product line will help attract shoppers and it’s the first time the world’s biggest retailer has made its product available online in the United States outside of its own website.

1WorldSync AUG 2017: What Happens In Vegas..Does Not Stay in Vegas!

Oh what a time!  Late June back in 2017…

Sounds a bit like a song, right?  I was asked to write up a little something to recap our recent Annual User Group, and I have to say, there were some amazing times had in Las Vegas.

On Day 1

Ken Yontz from 1WorldSync, our MC for our two-day event, painted a picture for the audience around “why” were we here. That simple question has a host of different answers, regulations, mandates, efficiencies and last but not least, end consumer impact.  

Vernetta McDowell from Reynolds then provided the attendees some amazing insights into their product content journey and transformation. I can’t tell you how many attendees came up to me after that sessions relating to Reynolds’ story and were ready to start moving forward on their own product content journey.

We then had some great breakout sessions with insights around visibility, content sourcing, as well as process & governance. Thought leaders from Dot Foods, Kellogg Company, the J.M. Smucker Company, Target Corporation, Tyson Foods, Walgreens and Walmart Stores Inc all provided insights into how they are addressing the need for more content. They engaged the audience in collaborative conversations to discuss what other challenges, and opportunities were in place.

We closed the day with two additional plenary sessions. The first was focused on the upcoming GDSN release presented by 1WorldSync’s own Cristina Macias. Cristina, our Director of Implementation, walked the audience through the changes coming, and provided guidance and insights into the newest feature functionality and capabilities of the latest release.  

The second had Mark Hoyle of Teleflex provide insights on their product content journey through insights around UDI, and how they educated their organization on what effort would be needed to meet those needs. Mark then capped off his session with a riveting video that took us back to the news reels of the 1940’s.

Power of 1 Networking Reception

That evening, we had an amazing event in the Boombox Room of Marquee Nightclub at the Cosmopolitan Hotel.  Living it up the only way Vegas can provide, the attendees enjoyed fabulous views of the strip while 1WorldSync recognized some amazing organizations for their efforts and achievements:

We also announced the recipients of the 1WorldSync 2017  Power of 1 Awards. These awards honor organizations that have displayed exceptional leadership and made a significant impact in transforming their product content practices.

On Day 2

Day 1 and the Power of 1 event did a great job highlighting what has been accomplished or is currently underway within our client community.  Day 2 took a different angle and provided the audience direction on “what” is coming.  It started with a few of our Industry & Share Group Customer Chairs providing insights around what has occurred, and direction towards where they see the groups going.  

Greg Zwanziger, from SuperValu, provided some milestones that the Recipient Share group have accomplished, and pushed for a call to action from other recipients to join the group and help drive change within the community.  

Mark Whitman, from Intalere, provided a brief history around how the Healthcare Industry group is re-introducing itself, and where we are looking to grow.  

Lastly, Tim McDaniel from Constellation Brands, and Eric Ginsburg from Sazerac, introduced the Alcohol Beverage Industry Group to the audience and provided insights into the opportunity they see, and what this group is looking to achieve through their product content journey.

We then entered the hallmark session for the Annual User Group, the “Tonight Show Panel”.  Our host, Harris Diamand from 1WorldSync, provided a bit of levity during his “when good signs go bad monologue”, and then welcomed up our first guest, Patricia Chavez, from Walmart Stores Inc. Patricia provided some great insights into where Walmart Stores Inc is going, and what changes we can expect to see during the rest of 2017.  

Jean-Marc Klopfenstein, from Nestlé, was the next guest on stage, and provided a very thoughtful manufacturer’s perspective on how Nestle views and seeks to improve the world through their innovation, transparency and philanthropic efforts.  

The final guest for the session was Nick Kaufman, from The Kroger Company.  Nick shared the current state of Kroger’s content efforts, and a peek into where they are planning continue to disrupt the Grocery industry in the near future.  Harris wrapped up the session with a couple of questions to all guests focused on industry direction.

Our closing session for the Annual User Group was led by Dan Wilkinson from 1WorldSync. He provided the vision of where 1WorldSync is continuing to grow within the Product Content Space and how the journey for all of us is just getting started with new innovations that are in need of massive amounts of content.

This all led into a great GS1 Connect networking event as well.

It’s a Wrap!

I want to thank all the speakers, who shared their insights and direction and all the audience participants who helped to make the collaboration sessions a success. We are grateful to our Customer Community for making the 2017 Annual User Group the best one to date!

Please visit our 2017 AUG website to reflect back on the content including speaker presentations and photos from the event.
