The challenge

Every day, Bol.com receives up to 200,000 images from its various suppliers. Processing these images is extremely labor intensive. They should all be indexed and stored with the correct and effective metadata. Next, selections must be made of the most suitable images for the website.

Content orchestrating

1 billion files

In order to be able to process and manage the enormous amounts of files, Bol.com has chosen the robust WoodWing Assets image bank. It can manage up to 1 billion files. In addition, a user-friendly interface in combination with an open architecture and well-documented API (development interface) were required. Bol.com has created scripts via the API that automatically make selections based on the metadata that is linked to the images.

PIM and DAM

The images are filtered on the basis of predefined criteria, so that the selection process for the product managers is greatly simplified. Through an integration between WoodWing Assets (DAM) and the Product Information Management system (PIM), data and files can be worked in real time. As a result, the processing and publication process is no longer a bottleneck for growth and ambitions.
