Merchandising refers to the structure and variety of products available to sell.
Information that can be held with the product record can contain not just the basic information (Code, description, price etc) but also Technical, supplier, catalogue, bar code information as well as substitute products. For the Ecommerce solution additional information can be held relating to information, categories and pictures to be displayed on-line.
As well as setting up stand alone products, users are also able to generate products automatically through the use of a standard style header with up to 3 attributes e.g. A style header ‘Shirt’ could have the attributes of Colour, Collar, Length.
Products can also be combined so that they can be sold on an individual basis or as a component part of a set.
