Riversand Bedazzles Jewelry Television’s Product Information Management
Houston, TX – May 06, 2016 — Riversand Technologies, an innovative leader in Multi-domain Master Data Management, today announced that Jewelry Television (JTV), a popular American television network and online jewelry retailer, has successfully implemented Riversand’s MDMCenter solution. For JTV, MDMCenter will be instrumental in their strategic initiatives to drive sustainable growth by delivering relevant products and personalized experience to their customers across all channels.
Riversand’s MDMCenter enabled JTV to address their pain points around JTV’s Gemopedia. Gemstones and their enhancements were managed by user groups in silos through Ecommerce systems and spreadsheets and delivered to the site through laborious manual processes. Data was difficult to keep updated, and posed the risk of being inconsistent and sometimes incomplete on JTV’s customer facing websites. Riversand’s PIM and MAM solution empowered JTV’s business users to manage all aspects of Gemstone data including media assets in one application. JTV’s customers are now able to access current and accurate information at all times. Information management and workflows at JTV are now well defined, governed and automated. This was one of the first of the many data management initiatives that JTV and Riversand have planned together.
Throughout the implementation, Riversand’s ability to partner with JTV’s Technology group, business users and System Integration (SI) partners has been noteworthy. Riversand’s consultants along with JTV’s Technology organization steered the requirements gathering sessions and guided the business users in the implementation of industry best practices allowing this project to contribute to the companies larger Omni-Digital strategy. The client recognized Riversand’s agility, responsiveness and commitment to the success of the initiative.
As C. Chris Meystrik, CTO of JTV, observed, “We have a desire to reinforce our leadership position in gemstone content. Being the world’s largest supplier of loose colored gemstones, it is natural that our customers should count on us for the best information on the product. Having such quality, dependable content would raise our awareness in the market, impact our reputation, and likely have a positive impact on our internal culture. Riversand’s PIM solution is already helping us deliver on this vision quickly and without the cost of an internal application development effort.”
“Riversand has continued to gain momentum in PIM and MDM market and has become synonymous with enabling strategic initiatives for our customers. We are proud to be contributing to growth of JTV, the leaders in their industry segment” said Upen Varanasi, Co-Founder and CEO of Riversand.
