New product releases are triggered from the Pim system where the images are automatically published to the website.

In addition, Publication Organizer ensures that distributors and dealers in 27 European countries are provided with fully localized marketing materials such as brochures, advertisements and banners, available 24/7. Distributors and dealers are connected to the workflow and DAM system so that they themselves can textually modify already localized marketing expressions and customize specific images to better fit the local experience.

Qonqord implemented a platform based on WoodWing software, which provides an integrated image database and workflow for content planning, creation, editing and approval. This platform was integrated with Yamaha’s InRiver PIM system for multilingual management of product content. All internal and external participants work together in one central workflow, ensuring tasks are handled efficiently and everyone has visibility into the status of work.
