The GfK Etilize Solution

GfK Etilize has created an automated system that enables the flow of highly accurate and complete product content from the GfK Etilize CMS (Content Management System) to CDW. This data includes:

  • Product Descriptions
  • Feature Benefits
  • Product Attributes
  • Rich Media Elements

Data is often visible on CDW within minutes.


Hands-Free Content Syndication
