    Salsify Announces Launch of the Salsify PXM Advance Platform, AI-Propelled for the 2nd Decade of the Digital Shelf

    New Version Provides Customers with Capabilities to Drive Performance Growth On Every Digital Touchpoint with Maximum Efficiency

    BOSTON, February 21, 2024 — Salsify, the Product Experience Management (PXM) platform empowering brand manufacturers, distributors, and retailers to win on the digital shelf, today announced the general availability of Salsify PXM Advance, a new version of the Salsify platform that raises the business value customers can achieve from their product experience management operations. The release features product advancements across AI and automation, efficiency improvements in governance and syndication, premium below-the fold Enhanced Content capabilities to drive increased conversion rates, and the introduction of the Salsify PXM App Center, a central homebase for PXM innovation from Salsify and their global network of partners.

    The central goal of any brand’s PXM operations is to optimize every touchpoint on the digital shelf for maximum conversion. Accurate, complete product content that meets each retailer’s unique requirements are the essential foundation for driving retail media Return on Ad Spend (ROAS), search performance, and consumer confidence:

    • A recent consumer survey found that 78% of shoppers find product images and descriptions extremely or very important to their buying journey.1.
    • In new omnichannel research released today from the Digital Shelf Institute and omnichannel research and advisory firm Stratably, 71% of digital leaders from 78 consumer brands believe Product Detail Page (PDP) quality significantly influences their ROAS.2.

    Salsify invested more than $20 million dollars in product investments in 2023 alone to deliver the capabilities designed for the scale, efficiency, and automation customers require across the PXM lifecycle. With the Salsify PXM Advance platform, brand manufacturers can:

    • Centralize all of their product content into a trusted, central source of truth PIM that is unified with their syndication solution.
    • Connect their content to every PDP on every destination their shoppers are at with conversion-driving product experiences that grow sales.
    • Automate processes and reduce manual work with AI, workflows, and automation so they can be more efficient with their PXM operations.

    Some of the new benefits included in Salsify PXM Advance include:

    • Meet retailer requirements faster, spend more time selling: A redesigned product content setup process helps you send the right content the first time with significantly less mapping effort. Salsify PXM Advance now validates content against the latest retailer-specific requirements in real-time, saving customers days in the mapping process. A new Universal Properties capability gives every product on every channel an automated jump start with core approved data, dramatically speeding up the syndication process.
    • Convert more shoppers: Salsify PXM Advance Enhanced Content makes it easier than ever to turn Product Detail Pages (PDP) into a conversion-driving product experience. Marketers and merchants can increase engagement on their PDPs at participating retailers with unlimited standard and premium layouts, including interactive comparison charts, image galleries, PDFs, video, and hotspots that drive 15% higher conversion rates on average. Integrated digital shelf reporting highlights conversion-driving best practices directly alongside where your product data is stored so you can optimize your content to increase discoverability, traffic, and conversion rates.
    • Amp up success in Grocery: New with Salsify PXM Advance, the Salsify Grocery Accelerator is the industry’s first-ever category-wide PXM accelerator, designed specifically for the Grocery category’s unique data and compliance needs. We’ve developed a Grocery Category Guide, a collection of common category and regulatory data standards, and industry best practices. The Grocery Accelerator combines the Grocery Category Guide with AI-propelled automation, human expertise, and multiple levels of validation to syndicate accurate, validated, and high-quality product in less time than it previously took brands to reach just one.
    • Improve GDSN time to market performance: Customers using Salsify’s unified, fully interoperable GS1-certified GDSN data pool have reported both a significantly accelerated submission process, and retailer feedback being received faster than with legacy data pool solutions. Salsify’s unified GDSN data pool now supports 9 countries, including US, Canada, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, and France, with many more to come.
    • Generate content at scale with AI while keeping humans in the loop: In Salsify PXM Advance, generative AI LLMs are deeply integrated into Salsify’s workflows capability, enabling customers to create and refresh product content at scale while still ensuring efficient human review and approval prior to reaching the market. Additional integrations in the Salsify PXM App Center help you further leverage AI to generate content at scale. 
    • Use AI-propelled content validations to improve quality and speed: The Salsify platform uses AI that is based on more than 740 million products published across 950 destinations worldwide in 2023 alone to power the real-time validation of product content, ensuring retailer requirements are met before submission. 
    • Optimize the Conversion Impact of PDP Visual Content with AI: The Vizit Conversion Optimizer App in the Salsify App Center uses the power of AI to automatically identify the most appealing images and rearrange your carousel to maximize effectiveness with consumers. Customers increased conversions up to 10% with the Vizit Conversion Optimizer.
    • Maintain accuracy and consistency across multiple regions or languages: Our Multi-Locale workflow monitors for updates to primary locale data and automatically triggers that enable local markets to maintain content accuracy across all regions.The Translate Task workflow supports source translation for up to three locales, for fast and efficient support of entire regions. 
    • Manage and optimize PXM Ops at an enterprise scale: Due to its business impact, PXM platforms are taking their place alongside the core data systems of commerce like ERP, MDM, CRM, and DAM. Salsify PXM Advance features new Configuration Management APIs and multi-locale workflows that allow customer IT teams and their SI partners to set up, test, and manage Salsify instances at scale. This enables customers to accelerate the rate at which they govern global deployments and port configurations from one Salsify instance to another. Additionally, new Digital Shelf Operations Data Feeds allow customers to ingest digital shelf operations data into their own Business Intelligence environment to measure and optimize the efficiency and impact of their PXM operations.
