A new Icecat feature gives brands the opportunity to automatically add commercial messaging to images that are provided with product data-sheets and shared throughout Icecat’s user network. This service allows brands to merge and highlight localized key messaging within a product’s main image, that is often the eye-catcher for an online shopper visiting a product page.
Icecat sees this communication need coming back in all sorts of other images as well such as marketing banners and rich media pages that are converted to images. In Asia, due to a highly mobile consumer network, the majority of product images are annotated to immediately present all essential information needed by consumers to drive a purchase decision. And, there are other situations where annotated images are used to differentiate and stand out from the crowd. This can be as simple as adding a brand’s “authorized partner” logo to an image to confirm that the business partner is authorized by the brand and trained to sell and service branded products.
Image optimization can be applied to any product image. Icecat supports multiple variants based on layout, design elements, as well as partner and platform requirements. The image messaging functionality can automatically embed key specifications, selected logos and partner data in main images. The requirements of key partners and platforms are adopted. A separate data flow via integration partners can be adopted.
“As we need standardized data to ensure automation of these processes works flawlessly, the foundation for product data integration is based on Open Icecat data”, according to Icecat CCO Peter Sol.
