Customer Corner: How NGK Spark Plugs keeps product sales on fire with a unified data management strategy that captures automotive standards
As an aftermarket manufacturer, NGK needed to map their vast inventory of auto parts to meet global automotive standards. Without this mapping, individuals and businesses couldn’t determine make/model compatibility—and NGK couldn’t sell the parts. In this customer interview, NGK Spark Plugs joins Pivotree’s Derek Corrick to discuss how they amped up sales with a single global system for product information management (PIM). They’ll share best practices that contributed to their success, along with PIM tips and tricks that any business can adopt.
