Rithum AI Magic Mapper for speedy Marketplace Expansion

To help brands reduce time-to-site by automating categorisation, Rithum have announced their latest: AI Magic Mapper. The new tool empowers brands to automate the labour-intensive process of aligning products with marketplace categories. This is a new way to optimise channel expansion efforts and minimise listing friction across Rithum’s network of 40,000 retailers, brands and suppliers.

The Challenge of Marketplace Expansion

Expanding to new sales channels is a strategic move for businesses, but it often involves labor-intensive tasks. Uploading a product catalog to a fresh channel can be time-consuming and resource-draining. Enter AI Magic Mapper, which revolutionises the process by automating categorisation. Let’s explore how it benefits brands:

1. Intuitive Category Mapping

  • Brands select their target channel and associate product assortments using predefined labels.
  • Rithum’s AI Magic Mapper then automatically categorises products, eliminating the need for hours spent on manual spreadsheet work.
  • This feature is especially valuable for large catalogs with thousands of products spanning multiple categories.

2. Spot-Checking and Refinement

  • The tool provides a detailed view of recommended categories, complete with product images, titles, and descriptions.
  • Merchandisers can easily spot-check and refine category assignments based on specific criteria.
  • Swift adjustments ensure optimal category alignment, positioning each product for success.
  • For smaller catalogs, brands can skip the calibration process and proceed directly to review and confirmation.

3. Visualise and Curate Your Catalog

  • AI Magic Mapper unlocks powerful features for visualising, searching, and curating product catalogs.
  • Brands can handpick the right products for any marketplace, excluding those that don’t align.
  • This agility allows quick adaptation to market demands and opportunities for profitable growth.

Real-World Success: A Case Study

Time-intensive and resource-intensive tasks like uploading a product catalog to a new channel can slow down a business’ marketplace expansion strategy. In early testing, AI Magic Mapper achieved 99% accuracy in category recommendations for a clothing and apparel company with approximately 14,000 products – all in minutes compared with hours previously.

These new capabilities are available to brands in the US, UK, Germany and The Netherlands.
