Preparing World Class Content

Even though database-driven publishing reduces time and effort, before you are able to leverage the savings from automated page flows your content needs to be ready. Here are some questions to ask when reviewing your content’s readiness before production.

Are your product attributes consistent and is the information available in a uniformed manner? Nothing stands out more than inconsistency among product groupings, so it is critical that all attributes have similar information that conforms to the rest of the products.
