XC Showroom PCM

XC Showroom PCM is an innovative Cloud-based platform that provides PCM, MDM, CMS, DAM and Multi-
Channel Publishing functionalities as an integrated solution for digital marketers.
xCircular streamlines the processes around managing a central master product data, sharing product information,
collaborating on structured and unstructured marketing contents, syndicating product assets and data to multiple
supply-chain partners, and automating new content creation and publishing tasks.
XC Showroom PCM becomes many companies’ single trusted source for contents to enable automatic export of
product data and assets to multiple e-commerce and web sites, industry databases, affiliate sales channels and
internal ERP, CRM and WMS systems.
Your teams will no longer experience managing product information on multiple Excel sheets or losing control on
data versions and pricing or making errors due to multiple data file updates or spending long time in search and
sharing the right assets.
One repository of data means one truth available. Employees and customers see, consume and share the right
assets and the latest data on a self-served basis. Marketing can spend time on what really matters instead of
fulfilling never-ending logos and assets requests.
Updating data becomes easy because once you update the master database, data updates also in your corporate
and customer systems automatically. Gone are the tedious manual updates.
Our focus is to provide added value and time saving functionality for marketing professionals using simple
browsers, without the need for overly-sophisticated and computationally complex tools.
You will find XC Showroom PCM very visual, user friendly and time saving. More importantly, the XC Showroom
PCM platform provides you with useful productivity tools for your cross-channel advertising.
