Santa Clara, California and Berlin, Germany, September 11, 2018 — Propel, the platform for future brands, and Productsup, the leading cloud-based product content syndication solution for e-commerce, are announcing the integration of their offerings to ensure timely and accurate product content across all B2B and B2C sales channels. Customers can use the new offering to publish the latest product data to field sales teams, distributors, suppliers, brick and mortar stores, and e-commerce channels like Amazon, Google and Alibaba. By streamlining the flow of product data from Propel’s Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and Product Information Management (PIM) solutions, as well as Salesforce CRM and leading e-commerce platforms, companies can better coordinate product launches across engineering, marketing, sales channels, business units and regional markets.
Businesses have always been challenged with communicating their latest specifications, bundles, pricing and other product information to distributed sales teams, partners and markets.

- Aggregate, validate and transform data from multiple sources and suppliers
- Update, version, review and approve any product content changes
- Compare and evaluate how product attributes have changed over time
- Leverage hundreds of pre-defined integrations to e-commerce channels or easily map integration touchpoints to new platforms
- Stay informed with changes from e-commerce platform vendors
- Publish updated product information to Salesforce pricebooks, product catalogs and partner communities
- Track tasks needed to roll out new products to the market
- Measure how sales teams, distributors and partners have been trained on the latest product updates
“As companies grow and try to launch products faster, they need better visibility into what product updates are happening, why they need to change, and who approved those updates,” Miguel Tam, VP of Marketing at Propel, said. “Since Propel offers both PLM and PIM solutions on the Salesforce platform, it’s easy for companies to manage product information across engineering and marketing to any sales channel. The partnership between Propel and Productsup gives businesses a seamless way to manage product updates across all channels.”
