"A Flexible, Robust & Real PIM for the Times"

What do you like best?

The people behind Catsy. They are 110% supportive. Need an answer? Emails are answered within the hour. Need a call? It won't take longer than next day to set something up. And they have the answers to boot.

Functionality wise, the best is their slick UI which makes it easy for everyone to use... the Product Manager who enters the information, the Marketers who syndicate, and the external end-users who use the HUB to search for information.

What do you dislike?

Only one thing: it is probably too easy to make changes in the back-end (without requiring to click a confirmation to make the change). So this can sometimes be an issue for an admin who is click-happy.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

One source of information for everyone - we call it our "bible".

It's fast - allowing everyone to get information within seconds.

It lets us syndicate information into any marketing material easily.

All of these benefits have allowed us to save time and be more accurate.

"Catsy is ahead of its time!"

What do you like best?

The software is so easy to use and so powerful with integration with other software and eCommerce systems. The support (CJ and Kyle) is no less then excellent! The response time for questions is amazingly fast. These guys know their stuff!!

What do you dislike?

I really do not find anything to dislike about the software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you explore all aspects of the software. It's capabilities go beyond a standard PIM.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using Catsy to integrate with our eCommerce website. With Catsy our data is managed in only one platform and it updates our website on the fly (using the web-hook feature).

Besides the eCommerce site, we also use Catsy for print publications. We have flyers and catalogs that we produce using the Catsy database.

What Product Information Management (PIM) solution do you use?

"Incredible PIM & DAM"

What do you like best?

The application is easy to use and navigate with different views for different purposes. Apply validation rules to attributes at a very minute level.

What do you dislike?

No cons to the system, and can be used for other purposes in our setup for internal sales reps and CSRs. There are several other product requests that should be handled via Catsy.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used Catsy for over 2 years and it simplified our process to manage products and images. We manage all our product attributes, images and channels in one place. It is easy to integrate with their APIs for us to export data in different formats. The site is very easy to use and you can customize your preferred queries and views. You can setup different rules and validate data.

"Perfect for E-commerce Business with Complex Channel and Sku Operations"

What do you like best?

We have created “one source of truth” for all of our product information and digital assets. Everyone in our organization can easily find and update any information they need to. We have seen an increase in E-commerce sales on our site and the distributor sites we sell through. A good portion of the increase is a direct result of better managing product content within Catsy.

What do you dislike?

They have API integrations with a few channels we sell on. In a perfect world, there would be API integrations with all channels. The process of exporting excel and CSV files is an easy to use work around. With time we are told the integrations will come.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The main challenges we had was managing our product pages on all channels. Catsy has cut down the time of managing these channels drastically. Additionally, the product pages are more robust and more up to date. This is resulting in higher conversions and more page views. Our team also loves using the system because it is much smoother than our old process that centered around Excel files and image folders.

"A golden record of all product info and assets for eCommerce merchants"

What do you like best?

We design and manage eCommerce platforms for companies. Catsy provides brands and distributors a “golden record” of all product information and digital assets. Catsy simplifies the process of managing product pages for companies selling through multiple eCommerce channels.

What do you dislike?

Catsy focuses on making it easier to manage product information and digital assets. If they were able to handle the order processing piece that would be a great addition. However, today they have software partners that specialize only in order processing across all channels.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It eliminates all of the excel files and image folders that our clients manage. The scattered data leads to inaccurate and missing information. For most of our customers, they struggle to keep product data and images up to date across all channels. Catsy eliminates that challenge. Catsy also makes it much easier for our clients to find and update images. This is improving content on eCommerce sites and leading to increased page views with higher conversion rates.

"Great tool for organizing data into a PIM."

What do you like best?

The InDesign plug-in and web hooks keep the changes to our product information organized and consistent across all of our marketing platforms. Catsy makes getting all of our product information into catalogs, flyers and our e-commerce website a lot easier.

What do you dislike?

Nothing. Catsy customer service is excellent.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would highly recommend Catsy to help organize your data.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Catsy enabled us to transform our print catalog into a PIM. The ability to keep all our images and product information in a user friendly database helps in the organization and presentation of our product data. Since implementing Catsy our team is more productive in marketing our products.

"Great Catalog Management With Awesome Web API"

What do you like best?

I love how customizable and user friendly the software is! If we need a new field added, we can manually go in and create the field as needed.

They also have an easy to use web API which is very easy to incorporate with e-commerce websites.

What do you dislike?

Nothing at the moment! Every time I have an issue, my contacts at Catsy are very fast to respond and get the issue resolved or make a custom solution for me.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Catsy is an awesome company! They have great customer support, and have a great product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Catsy is a great way for us to keep track of all of our product details. From PDF's, to product images and attributes, Catsy stores it all! Since we started using Catsy, we have had a better way of keeping track of all of our product details.

"Save More Time With Catsy Product Management, Catalogs, Pricebooks, & Online Publishing"

What do you like best?

Works flawlessly with indesign. Catsy online CSR is lighting quick. Anything you need they will make it happen.

What do you dislike?

Nothing. Any concerns we had during initial setup and the following months Catsy corrected or worked out a solution that would work for us.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make they switch! If you think Catsy looks right for you then make the switch, they will exceed and overcome and exceed any doubts that you had.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Almost half of every month was spent with marketing our products. Now I have this down to maybe 2 days a month. The largest thing that takes any of my time now is just inputing new items. Before I would have to input new items in our catalog with indesign, then go to our website and update the products then, after that create different sell sheets for our sales people. Catsy Allows me to add the item to one database, updates our website directly through API integration into Bigcommerce without me touching anything! After that I can Spray the item in our catalog and on a sales sheet inside of seconds.

"Works great for a distributed team"

What do you like best?

We love the way Catsy enabled us to create a central repository of all our content. We have products across category lines in different locations. We were

What do you dislike?

That we waited this long to put a PIM system in place.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are conservative like us and looking for a solution that's been around for a while, then take a look at Catsy.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We used to have data in PDF files, Auto CAD files, word documents and excel spreadsheets. We also had images on departmental file servers in various formats. When a partner requested data, we used to scramble to get the correct data to them. This was a content management and publishing nightmare. With Catsy, all our items are categorized, images linked and descriptions updated by the right stakeholders.

"Best of breed PIM & Catalog Publishing"

What do you like best?

Easy-to-use interface, responsive support & attentive account manager. We also like the digital asset management module integration and it's ability to fulfill our image transformation needs.

What do you dislike?

None so far. They seem to be responsive when we need help.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Have them give you a demo with your data. It is easier to relate to. In our second demo, we asked them to use our data and it was easy to get sign-off from management.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have a large product selection. We were using spreadsheets to manage product descriptions and specifications. And then we were managing this content separately on our website. We needed a simple solution to centralize all our products and publish to marketplaces, our website and to our CSRs.

"CATSY Product Information & Digital Asset Management"

What do you like best?

Product information management is seamless. InDesign documents are quickly produced or updated and ready for production. The products are categorized and maintained without much effort of work on my part. Updates are easy and take very little time.

What do you dislike?

Nothing so far. I have had no problems or dislikes to date.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have many categories we manage along with digital images and product information. This information/data is organized and managed through use of the CATSY program and if a new or revised category is needed - it is done without any effort. SEAMLESS...

"Unparalleled Catalog Management"

What do you like best?

Catalog building, pricebooks, brochures and content management. I like how easy it is to refresh marketing copy, images and charts. Before Catsy it was a slow and painstaking process to update product specifications. Now our product managers update the specs and they are updated across all our catalogs.

What do you dislike?

I am in InDesign a lot. I make changes to copy in InDesign and push it back to the ONEsource content management (database). This works when I do it right after editing text. But sometimes I forget. Wish there was a way it reminded me?

Recommendations to others considering the product

Hire catsy to do your content digitization and load it into the system along with setup and training. It will save you time and your users will jump right in!!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We had our product descriptions and images all over the place. There was no central repository. With Catsy PIM, we are able to centralize everything and then generate print catalogs and pricebooks and streamline our product information management workflow.

"Catsy made our huge project simple!"

What do you like best?

Catsy is especially perfect for our company. We used Catsy to create our 700 page full color catalog and it was so simple! Once all the data is in correctly there's nothing to it! Just set up a template you like and it all comes in just like that. Automating a catalog has never been this easy. We look foward to using Catsy more for many other projects our company has in the future!

What do you dislike?

We did not find anything about Catsy we dislike

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need a big catalog this is perfect for you!

"Catalog Management that works Seemlessly with Indesign and Superior Customer Service"

What do you like best?

CJ and his team respond promptly to questions and issues that arise. They even provided InDesign training allowing a novice like myself to quickly utilize the Catsy plugin in Indesign to create professional looking documents with ease.

What do you dislike?

Preparing data files for upload was a bit tedious but from there, category creation and data management was a breeze.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Call Catsy and see how they can help you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Management of thousands of products with multiple fields/specifications to support website and print needs.
