Streamlines How We Create and Maintain Application Data
GMB chose Evokat Premier for a number of reasons. First, Evokat Premier allows us to access our catalog data securely from anywhere with an internet connection, without the need of setting up a VPN connection to the company domain. Second, Evokat Premier allows us to easily and accurately maintain product information for private label brands without duplication of data. Third, Evokat Premier streamlines how we create and maintain application data. Mapping applications is simple and accurate, and the built-in reporting makes monthly revalidation easy. We frequently use the bulk export/import function to compare data between our catalog and a legacy ERP system to ensure all product information is as accurate as possible. In all, Evokat Premier is a modern catalog solution that operates as a force multiplier.
Truly An All In One Catalog Authoring System
Nissens has been an Illumaware customer for over 10 years. Illumaware has taken the time to understand our business and categorize our data in a way that works for our customers. Evokat Premier is truly an all in one catalog authoring system! The team at Illumaware has always been very responsive to the Nissens business needs. We look forward to our continued relationship.
They helped us build our ACES & PIES database
I still have a fantastic experience with Illumaware. They helped us build our ACES & PIES database from the ground up, and had patience with me through training. Illumaware was able to take my original raw data and make it simple, using Evokat Premier. Brenda guided me throughout onboarding and has been there for any small or big question to support us. The whole team makes sure I am completely satisfied at every step.
Greatly Simplified The Process
For many years Evokat Premier has greatly simplified the process of complying with any customer-specific requirements by communicating product information right from our report library, allowing Valeo to get products to anyone accurately, fast and easy. Furthermore, the flexibility of Evokat Premier allows us to add additional fields, for internal and external needs.
Flexibility, Accuracy, and Speed Of Use
Uriman/Mando has leveraged Illumaware’s Evokat service for many years. As our requirements for authoring and communicating important vehicle application and PIES data have grown, so has the Evokat system. We enjoy its flexibility, accuracy, and speed of use. While using Evokat Premier we have noticed a marked difference in the quality of the information we catalog, as well as, an increase in sales. Best of all, we are very satisfied with their service level outside of normal use to provide guidance for optimum management of catalog data. We really like the fact that their format report library easily allows us to comply with any of our trading partner’s requirements.
Brand Information Management and Cataloging
Illumaware’s Evokat Premier online tools and services saved us a lot of time and money versus building our own internal solution. After more than a year, we continue to gain sales increases and new business, attributable in large part to our catalog data accuracy and speed to market. They showed us how to make the most of brand information management and cataloging.
Best Data-Authoring Tool
Illumaware has the best data-authoring tool I’ve seen in the industry. Evokat impressed me during the demo and continues to do so today.
I Was Blown Away
I was blown away when we started using Evokat – it was exactly the solution we were looking for. Evokat makes it incredibly easy to add new SKUs, map fitment information, and export in ACES, PIES, or any other format that our customers might need. The fact that Evokat is hosted in a cloud was a major selling point for us. There is no software or servers to maintain – we just log on using a web browser and it’s always there without any IT headaches to worry about.
We tried most of the other solutions out there and nothing else comes close. Evokat is the most valuable piece of software that an aftermarket company can use – it pays for itself in spades.
Integral Part of our Business
Evokat has evolved to become an integral part of our business. I view it not just as catalog software, but as a living, breathing component of each part that we sell. What is central to its success are the men and women who support Evokat.
Invaluable Extension Of Our Catalog
Illumaware has been an invaluable extension of our catalog team for the last 10 years. When we have cataloging issues that require an immediate response for our trading partners, I feel at ease knowing I can call multiple people at Illumaware for a quick resolution. They know the standards and all the players in our industry.
Fill Holes In The Data We Receive
The AAM Group™ chose Illumaware’s Evokat service to create supplemental product data for our ACES and PIES catalog. Specifically, Evokat will help us fill holes in the data we receive from our data partners, as well as enhance the loading of new parts into PACE™, our custom B2B cataloging and ordering system.
We have used Evokat to manage our product catalog for many years now, and we have found it indispensable in giving our customers the latest industry wide application terminology for our products. Eliminating application redundancy and customer confusion is another cornerstone to this indispensable tool.
Important Step Forward
Your hard work and special attention on the Sure Filter ACES to print catalog project ensured we can get it submitted to a printing agency in time for AAPEX. Your efforts helped Sure Filter take an important step forward in getting a proper printed catalogue compliant to ACES standards. Our entire project team is truly grateful.
After a lot work, and Illumaware’s help with bulk updates, we finally completed all of the requirements to reach SEMA Data Coop’s Gold level of certification. I really appreciate the fantastic help from Illumaware and look forward to more milestones in the future.
