Posted by on in Product Data Management

 

 

Many analysts have begun to throw their opinions in on Google's latest earnings miss - specifically the slowing in the search giant's core business (from 33% to 25% in Q4). This article in Business Insider theorizes that mobile search is far less profitable than standard search, and indicates that Amazon's rise might be taking a huge bite out of Google's success.

EDGE: Who are you, what’s your title and how long have you been with Edgenet?

CP: My name is Cory Payne, Director of Product Management and User Experience at Edgenet, and I’ve been here for almost 4 years.

EDGE: Edgenet has developed a really unique solution in Ezeedata – something that has attracted some of the world’s most powerful and influential companies in technology today.What makes Ezeedata so unique? Why couldn’t a company like Google just make a product like Ezeedata on its own?

CP: Edgenet’s Ezeedata services are built on decades of experience with rich product data. We know what sells and what doesn’t.

This experience has allowed Edgenet to create an app that assists customers in creating and enhancing product content to the highest standards in the world. It also allows us to reduce the amount of manual data entry required by the customer; you’d be surprised how much data we can fill in just by providing a picture of your product!
