The Basic Product Catalog

Step-by-Step Process:

The basic product catalog is created by the initial import of products to the website from the ERP software, by the CIMcloud sync tool.

Sage 100 fields from CI_Item
itemcode AS sku
ProductLine
SuggestedRetailPrice
pricecode AS product_class
ShipWeight
StandardUnitCost
ProductType
PriceCode
SalesPromotionDiscountPercent
SalesPromotionPrice
SaleMethod
SaleStartingDate
saleendingdate
StandardUnitPrice as retail_price
AllowTradeDiscount
StandardUnitOfMeasure
SalesUMConvFctr
SalesUnitOfMeasure
taxclass

 

The actual content will vary somewhat depending on the fields selected for importing.  

To access the products in your CIMcloud platform navigate to the Product Workspace (Second menu of the black bar to the far left) and open the menu for Product Catalog. From there select the Products page and when the table loads use the ‘edit’ action to access a product’s information. Note the following fields are required for a product record and are the minimum for the basic product catalog:

  • Display Online
  • SKU
  • Name

The name field functions as the link for accessing the product detail page from the combined (category) search results page.  If the name is not imported from the ERP software, names must be manually populated in the Product Workspace.

In addition to these required fields, the following ERP data is commonly imported:

  • Retail Price
  • Suggested Retail Price
  • Tax Class

Results:

Your customer’s view of the website with the basic product catalog configured would be similar to the example shown at the right.
