Starting Point

  • multiple brands, attributes and product hierarchies
  • complex administration of product data with magento
  • no process automation and data workflows
  • no content management DAM or PIM in place
  • upstream market requirements in terms of multichannel publication

API mediacockpit Magento

Until recently, Facilitylinq maintained their products in Magento. It turned out to be a complex process and the functionality fell short. The automation of internal processes and the demand of external channels triggered the need to store product data independently from the webshop. mediacockpit turned out to be a very flexible and open tool to achieve this goal. It streamlines processes and data on boarding, and it easily exposes product data to the IT-infrastructure.

Due to the open character of mediacockpit, Spark-it was able to build an API plugin on top of it syncing the PIM product data with Magento. The plugin picks up products, product hierarchies and attributes, flags changes, deletions and new products. The plugin is based on the Talend ETL layer and can run as independent plugin.

Facilitylinq is now able to use product data beyond their shop, in quotations, for resellers and to support all internal processes. "mediacockpit turned out to be a cost saver as an enabler for new business."
