P21WWUG CONNECT is Extra Special This Year

This year’s P21WWUG CONNECT is extra special to DCKAP and flexiPIM. Three reasons,

One, this year marks our 5-year partnership with P21WWUG CONNECT.

Two, we are excited to be here, after last year’s Covid break.

Three, we are bringing to you a complete solution for eCommerce challenges with two of DCKAP’s products- Cloras – An integration platform, and flexiPIM – A Product Information Management tool with an inbuilt P21 connector. It helps you collect, enrich and distribute product data from multiple sources to various touchpoints.

flexiPIM is a central system for your raw and finished product SKU information. On one end it helps to import product information from various sources like a P21 ERP, spreadsheets, vendor portals, and so on. While on the other hand, it helps you enrich the raw product data with images, videos, documents, files, variant data, modifiers, and so on to make it ready for marketing. This enriched product data can then be distributed to multiple sales channels like your eCommerce store, mobile, print media, social media platforms, and so on, with simple one-click mechanisms.

When P21WWUG asked its members what they loved the most about P21 connect, they said, “I’d have to say it was the ‘content’ of the sessions! Came back to the office with so much useful information…Thank You!” P21 connect is a chance for us all to meet, attend sessions conducted by the members and sponsors and learn about what’s new in P21 tech.

The event gave the team an opportunity to meet up even prior to the event, as they hosted clients for lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe in downtown Atlanta. There were plenty of laughs and thriving conversations. We’re happy to note the positive feedback we received about their experience with DCKAP and its product and services. The lunch also gave us the opportunity to gift them with some collectible DCKAP goodies too.

Booth #24 was where the team was stationed during the course of the event. The event began with informative sessions from Epicor, sharing key updates regarding the company and the P21 landscape over the last year. They shared how the company turns an estimated $900M in revenue per year and that global private equity company CD&R purchased them for approximately $4.7B. 230 customers are currently on P21 Cloud, with an estimated 7,000 daily users from five countries. This was followed by a wonderful welcome reception.

flexiPIM and ERP Integration middleware solution Cloras were at the front and centre at the booth during the event, and a point of conversation for many stopping by. Visitors also received some DCKAP goodies to take home with them.

The following day started bright and early, and included classes and plenty of networking opportunities. The team was happy to interact with visitors including current customers, prospective ones and partners alike, talking about the difference the right solutions can make to a company’s eCommerce presence. The evening even featured a great dinner and networking event at the Georgia Aquarium, Atlanta.
