Product "content" data for Digitec Galaxus includes title, description, images, videos and the specifications of a product.

Complete, comprehensive, relevant and correct content is crucial for an inspiring shopping experience, good advice and information for the customer. And thus the product content quality of a product has a significant influence on the conversion (probability that it will be bought).

But that's not all: well-maintained content is absolutely crucial for findability and placement in Google and Digitec Galaxus shop search and display in digital campaigns. Important shop features such as product recommendation tools, filtering or variant creation are also based on it. The better the data, the more prominent the display in the shop and the higher the sales opportunities. In addition, complete product information significantly reduces customer service requests, returns and cancellations.
