With revamped and more intuitive features and an easier-to-use interface, the platform provides a new level of automation capability for online retailers. It reduces the lion’s share of time-consuming product data management and automates processes, analytics and campaigns.

Lengow plans to develop the new e-commerce automation platform into a ‘hub’ that integrates with all major e-commerce tools, allowing customers to centrally manage and automate all e-commerce processes within a single platform.  The hub will integrate tools, services and partners, including product listing translation, delivery and payment management, pricing assistance and analytics services within a few clicks.

The platform’s intuitive new features allow online retailers:

  • Centralise all of their online campaigns and reduce data traffic.
  • Receive automated, personalised recommendations on channels and product reference optimisation.
  • Visualise in real-time  their product listings and catalogue status updates.
  • Create unique global promotions on specific e-commerce channels.
  • Set up multiple automatic rules for different product segments.
  • See the profitability of each of their products on each channel.
