Welcome back to Ziggy’s Customer Campfire Series! In last week’s opening edition, we heard the story of Midland Scientific and learned how the company used Akeneo PIM to cut enrichment costs and successfully complete the company’s digital transformation. 

In this week’s edition of the Customer Campfire Series, Ziggy heads to South Africa to hear the tale of omnichannel retailer JD Group, a company with a simple mission statement: Bring quality, durable goods to customers at a fair price. In their pursuit of this goal, the company had built a massive catalog filled with thousands of different furniture, appliances, and consumer electronic products.
