Sales Layer Overview

What is Sales Layer?

Sales Layer is a cloud-based product information management (PIM) solution designed to help eCommerce marketers manage and organize their product information, synchronize and update it automatically, analyze the quality, and then publish automatically across multiple channels and platforms. With the aim of helping businesses to organize, analyze, and publish product information, Sales Layer provides a platform to centrally manage an entire product catalog, score catalog listings based on quality, edit information in real time, and connect with third party platforms to publish content.

Sales Layer facilitates the management and organization of online product catalogs through the ability to import and export product information, group and categorize products, filter and search for products, and more. Users can edit multiple products simultaneously with actions including changing family, updating tags, and editing the status, and the catalog can be filtered and searched to find relevant products when making changes. Content editing can also be automated by setting up formulas with logic-based rules. Product listings are automatically awarded a quality score which analyzes the level of completeness of the content and highlights missing elements or fields.

Permissions can be set up to control which users have access to product data, and who can make changes to the catalog. Read-only access can also be granted to third parties, and integration with third party eCommerce platforms such as WooCommerce, Magento, CS Cart, and more, allows users to publish their product catalog across multiple channels. Any product changes are automatically synchronized across all channels in real time for a single source of truth.

A great tool and partner to ensure our clients have an efficient PIM

We specialise in building automated, personalised digital services, we chose Sales Layer as our Product Information Management partner as we share a common interest: catalog automation for businesses that sell products or services. Besides being a great solutions partner, Sales Layer is a very powerful PIM tool that we implement for our clients product work flow.

Managing lots of clients needs with a single PIM system

Our favourite thing about Sales Layer is that it has not only solved our product information management needs, but it is opening up new doors to possibilities we hadn't thought of before. This allows us to offer more services and agility to our clients. It’s very difficult to standardize product data from very different companies. Sales Layer is very flexible and we have found that it can adapt to any situation. The robust technical development behind it is very impressive.

We specialise in building automated, personalised digital services, we chose Sales Layer as our Product Information Management partner as we share a common interest: catalog automation for businesses that sell products or services. Besides being a great solutions partner, Sales Layer is a very powerful PIM tool that we implement for our clients product work flow.

Pros

An advantage is that users can choose between the plug and play connectors that save us time setting up the PIM data with third-party services. We use Sales Layer PIM with our own Unify connector to automatically create and update 100's of data-sheets and in turn produce bespoke product/service brochures.

As an agency it's crucial that our clients are able to centralise and independently manage their products and services whilst maintaining data integrity. In the past our clients have struggled when managing data across multiple channels, implementing Sales Layer has allowed Libris to offer clients a simple, flexible solution to organise, control, analyse and connect product data.

Cons

We don’t have many complaints yet. We keep trusting Sales Layer PIM for our own team and our clients to ensure a cost-effective and results-driven solution for Product Information Management.

Response from sales layer

We're proud of our partnership and Libris' great services, thank you so much!

Sales Layer is very flexible and we have found that it can adapt to any situation. The robust technical development behind it is very impressive.

Pros

We handle product information for several clients from very different industries. A central system like Sales Layer's PIM has solved dozens of needs for us on a single platform. Bulk uploading and export and import features are very easy to use. We are starting to test more PIM functionalities that will reinforce our work of connections with marketplaces, such as their Amazon connector, and with ecommerce platforms like Bigcommerce.

Cons

We haven’t experienced any technical difficulties or communication problems so far. Implementing and using the software has been phenomenal thanks to the Sales Layer excellent support team. Our own team is very happy with the knowledge provided and the quick turnarounds. The greatest inconvenience is that we have not had time to explore in depth all the PIM’s functions that we could take advantage of.

Response from Sales Layer

Thank you! We're happy to provide a solution that fits lots of businesses.

PIM tools are more and more essential each day for companies that need to send data to e-commerce platforms like Shopify while saving time to analyze traffic, customer behaviour and product performance. Sales Layer is the most effortless, comprehensive and simple PIM we could have found.

Pros

When we choose any new software for our company, we always take good care of analyzing if the technology is simple and flexible. Sales Layer has all those perks, and I've never heard any complaint inside my team like the common "oh no, another software training!". In fact, they got ready for us the connector we needed to send product information from the PIM to Shopify, and all the functions are very fun to use, like the possibility to add fields and customise the product-view, the simple export option, and the copy paste feature that let us add large amounts of data from Excel easily.

Cons

I had problems in the beginning understanding the hierarchy between Family/Category/Products/variants, this was cleared up by the on-boarding team. So my recommendation is to listen to the on-boarding team before you start importing products, so you get the foundation right!

Response from sales layer

Thank you! We are very happy that you have found in Sales Layer the solution that your catalog needed.

We love Sales Layer because it’s the most flexible, easy-to-use, first-class and caring PIM system. We found an enterprise level service accessible to SMEs in it.

Pros

We realized that we were wasting a lot of time, effort and resources creating catalogs, price lists and product pages every year with lots of omissions and errors. Our goal was to find a system accessible to smaller budgets and a flexible tool that let us quickly add new tasks. A lot of PIM solutions aren’t tailored to the needs of an SME. Sales Layer gave us the opportunity to translate a traditional catalog into the definite e-commerce experience.

Since working with the PIM software we can synchronize data from multiple sources, we have improved the performance of our marketing tools, and all our product content is now centralized in the PIM system in order to keep sales reps and more than 100 clients connected to Sales Layer and up to date. The most important thing for us was the digitalization of our whole catalog.

Cons

I have only good things to say about Sales Layer. The software is very understandable, but highly customizable, and they have a first class customer service. No complex software, long installations (our setup took around one month), or high costs involved: everything is simple, friendly and professional.

Response from sales layer

Thank you Ignacio for your trust in Sales Layer! We are always happy to make our customers product management simpler.
