eTailer DataFlow

 

eTailer WebCat

More cost-effective than creating your own product
information for your website.

Instead of taking weeks, or more likely months, compiling product information, creating copy to explain the product and its applications and then putting it on your website, let eTailer DataFlow and eTailer WebCat do it for you. The amount it will save you in both time and labor costs makes it a great investment for your business. You will have thousands of products with complete information right away!

DCi’s eTailer CMS is what we call a “closed-loop” solution, meaning product information and all key data elements are complete and ready to use.

Here’s a comparison of the two options:
