Gilbert, AZ, United States, 2012/03/20 - The Data Sync System is a one-of-its-kind solution to e-commerce automotive product inventory. The Rohnstein explains how the system works to provide an updated catalog on a daily basis - TheRohnstein.com.
Manufacturers are continually releasing new products and pricing for their automotive performance parts. The Rohnstein now offers its unique ability to sync to its customers their in-depth catalog which is updated daily with new items, pricing, and manufacturers, as seen at Vivid Racing. Based on a monthly subscription cost, products can be exported by its customers by make/model, manufacturer, category, or even the entire product list.
This does not, however, limit customers to carry only VR products on their sites.
The entire catalog at VR can be synced or specific portions may be chosen to sync. A company that sells only BMW and Porsche parts might want only those products. A company that sells only exhausts may only choose that category. Perhaps someone is building a store site that offers one manufacturer’s items, exclusively. There are many options to choose from.
The Data Sync System works off of product ID’s, so it will not override an item once it is updated by altering characteristics from its original state. If a change is made, the new product gets a different product ID than what is on the VR database.
The Rohnstein hosts the product images, as it is the most efficient way to serve up the products in the Sync System. Images are pulled from a shared “Cloud Server” from Rackspace. They can be changed by the customer, still allowing access to the images folder.
Updates by VR are done on a daily basis and announced on The Rohnstein’s blog or Twitter account. The Data Sync System may be used up to five times a day, which helps to keep the servers running at optimal speed.
The Rohnstein (.therohnstein.com) offers support to its customers using the Data Sync System and wants the automotive aftermarket industry to experience its unique service, giving the automotive e-commerce community an efficient way of doing business online.
