It's All About Your Product Data

Authors list

Every month, ESP handles more than 2.5 million searches by distributor users who access supplier product information to create presentations, sales flyers, and orders for their clients and prospects. Providing complete, accurate and clear product information will help make your products stand out and means that distributors don't have to make unnecessary edits when sharing your product with their customers.

  • Accessibility: Save, order or contact individual suppliers right from their catalog, without leaving ESP.
  • Browsing: Search catalogs from any device or desktop, at any time, from anywhere for on-the-go selling.
  • Extensive info: Having access to your digital catalog, means all of your product detail is right at the distributor's finger tips.

Need multiple changes or a full review of your ESP product data?

A full review of existing product data can be a time consuming process. By telling us what types of changes you have made to your existing products (i.e. added new colors or imprint methods; new options or changes to upcharges, etc.) we'll be able to narrow our focus. The more information you provide, the faster we can complete your update!

Make sure to include the following:

  • Send us a list of new products you've added to your product line, along with their corresponding high-res images - so we can prioritize them.
  • Are there products currently in ESP that you no longer carry. Provide us with a list of your discontinued items, so we can target them for immediate removal.
  • Has pricing changed for your existing products? If you can provide us the price changes in excel format - we may be able to import them for you. Or ask your ESP Data Coordinator for a price export so that you can update the pricing easily.

We recommend that existing high-res images be retained whenever possible as they are often tagged with their appropriate attributes and may also be processed so they are virtual sample ready. If you are adding new color or shape options, please be sure to provide the corresponding blank digital high-res images so that we can 'tag' the image to the new attribute. This allows the distributor to see the appropriate image based on the search term. Be sure to check out our image requirements here and upload images to us at https://spaces.hightail.com/uplink/ESPupload.
