Power catalog and inventory management

Deliver a responsive and reliable catalog and inventory solution

Businesses with large and dynamically changing portfolios require an agile and flexible data infrastructure that allows them to deliver a responsive customer experience, relevant product content, and a reliable real-time view of inventory and availability so they can drive customers’ interactions to real transactions. The Couchbase Data Platform combines product and inventory information in real time, scales easily to millions of products and requests per second, delivers low-latency access with eventual consistency design, and enables content authors to easily present  the right data at the right time – all to deliver a superior customer experience.

Challenge:

Database sprawl

 

A multitude of information systems supporting evolving commerce operations, oftentimes compounded by the needs of different business units, acquisitions, and/or partners, have led to an explosion of databases housing product content and real-time available-to-promise (ATP) inventory information.

With Couchbase:

Manage product data with one platform

 

Eliminate database sprawl with one single platform that spans web, mobile, and IoT applications. The Couchbase Data Platform manages and delivers your product and inventory data where it matters most – across all the interactions of your customer engagements.



Challenge:
Product Complexity
 

While dynamic organizations frequently introduce new products, update product content, and vary product presentations in their catalogs, backend technologies struggle to provide the agility and flexibility needed to store and manage this changing data.

With Couchbase:
Reduce time to market for new products or customer journeys

 

Couchbase’s flexible schema supports fast-changing images, SKUs, UUIDs, inventory, attributes, features, and product hierarchies, allowing you to get new products to market faster and into your customers’ hands.


 

Challenge:
Data Availability
 

When delivering product information to a customer, it’s critical to show the right data at the right time. If someone tries to buy a product or book a reservation that’s no longer available, you’ve just created a poor user experience – and maybe even lost a customer for life. Customers also expect your catalogs to be accessible from mobile devices, even if they drop their internet connection.




With Couchbase:
Deliver always-available product and inventory information


Combine product content and ATP inventory information at the point of customer engagement, reducing time to insight and powering enterprise-grade catalogs that deliver a responsive customer experience, accurate product content, and reliable real-time views of inventory and availability. Plus, easily scale to millions of products and thousands of requests per second, all while maintaining fast user access to product information, so you can meet user demand at any point in time.
