Babolat was founded in Lyon, France in 1875 as a family-owned company that manufactured the first natural gut strings for tennis racquets. Babolat has since evolved into a specialist in manufacturing and distributing racquets and accessories for tennis, badminton, and other racquet sports. Their products are used by professional and recreational players worldwide. Today, the company employs 370 employees and maintains a global presence.

Babolat distributes its products through a network of distributors via a B2B website, a brand showcase website, and a print catalog.

With this in mind, the work on product data enrichment had to be streamlined to satisfy both a B2B audience of distributors, retailers, coaches, and clubs, and as well as their new D2C (direct-to-customer) audience of tennis players.
