“From the digital merchandising standpoint, we needed a partner to support us in taxonomy build, deployment to our MDM, and then develop a unique solution to use rules to auto-assign items to a category hierarchy in an optimized and efficient way,”
“That is why we turned to Pivotree, who have a foundational understanding of data management in the food industry, and who helped us realize the goal of boosting our capabilities to implement a data-centric model to build and revitalize our functional data design.”
Natalie Scott, Data Governance and Business Process Manager, Gourmet Foods.

Gourmet Foods received assistance from Pivotree in the form of the development of an industry-best practice backbone data model, updated categories, category-specific attribution and meta-data, conversion of current SKUs and SKU values into the new data standard created by Pivotree, and migration of the entire data set into Gourmet Foods’ PIM platform.

“Our approach was to work collaboratively and immerse our team in our client’s needs, so we were able to develop a project plan and define style standards for this initiative that best addressed the needs of increased efficiency and optimization of their PIM system,”
“We’re excited about our current success and look forward to continuing to support the future growth of Gourmet Foods, including providing advanced modeling support and configuring their data model to support future enterprise data needs.”
Derek Corrick, General Manager, Data Management, Pivotree.
