Retail | BLAZE Master Product Catalog Overview

The BLAZE Master Product Catalog allows your organization to easily manage a large catalog of products and categories from seed to sale.

The Master Product Catalog allows quick edits and updates to your products from a single location for data points such as product descriptions, images, pricing, and more. 

The Master Product Catalog makes handling every aspect of your inventory easier, saving you time to focus on running your business. Your dashboard is your single source of changes for all of your products. Change the prices of a product at multiple stores globally or make them uniquely priced. You can see the amount of the product in the master dashboard and make transfers instantly.

With the BLAZE Master Product Catalog, it is easy to standardize your operations.

  1. Create your Parent Products
    Under your parents will live the children. You can adopt orphaned products into the parents.

  2. Manage your Inventory
    Setting the price of the parent sets the price of the children globally. Even across multiple stores. If you would like to have different pricing for each child product simply change them inside of the Master Product Catalog dashboard.

  3. Keep Inventory Integrity 
    See your inventory at each store and make transfers inside of the dashboard.
