Only one standard data-feed
We need just one data feed in order to create a Product Guide: we only use the already existing standard data feed export of your Shop or CMS systems, for example, like it is used for price comparison sites or affiliates. Then excentos optimizes and enriches the existing data for the Product Guide's use.
The most common data formats are CSV or XML but other data formats can be used without a problem. The data is updated automatically, daily, hourly, or live - depending on your needs. excentos does not need data, which is prepared for the user's needs. The raw data (technical data) are sufficient due to fact that the intelligent Matching Engine translates the buying needs into technical attributes. Therefore, it is, in the most cases, not necessary to add further data for the Product Guide.
