MarTech Series caught up with Eddie Porrello, Director of Product at Amber Engine to chat about a few top of mind B2B eCommerce and data optimization trends:
Welcome to this martech chat Eddie, tell us more about the Amber Engine platform?
Amber AI is an AI-powered product data optimization tool for brands selling on Amazon. It combines Junction AI’s artificial intelligence and algorithmically derived insights with Amber Engine’s Product Information Management to quickly identify areas of improvement and enable brands to put those suggestions into practice.
Can you talk about a few successful product road map strategies (proven strategies!) you’ve seen leaders in tech use?
Road maps are great, but I can share the most insight on what the brands we serve are doing in the market. Understanding that informs the best product road map decisions. To that end, successful e-commerce brands are constantly watching Amazon trends and evaluating and re-evaluating their product strategy to take advantage of emerging trends to make product design and marketing decisions. By monitoring their performance, as well as that of their most successful competitors, they are able to optimize and improve their products and product data to win share.
