Onboard SKUs in minutes with ZIA Capture!

Onboarding SKUs to your catalogue shouldn’t feel like you’re training to be in the Navy Seals. It should be similar to calling an Uber: A few taps, a short wait, and voila, the process is complete.

Take a look at the process in this blog post to see how it works, and how you can benefit from it.

Our app, ZIA Capture, makes this possible.

Why did we build ZIA Capture?

For a long time, onboarding SKUs was a clunky, time consuming, and expensive process.

We realised that you shouldn’t be the ones to provide photogrammetry references as this can sometimes be difficult. You often have to recruit a 3rd party to do this, and it won’t come cheap.

We believe that you shouldn’t have to use an IR vendor that takes weeks to collect enough training data. This has a negative knock on effect which prevents you from reacting quickly and effectively to market conditions.

We believe that you should be able to have easy access to high quality 3D assets, with minimal/no human in the loop processes.

We also wanted to make the process as easy as possible, all you need is an iPhone!

We believed we could create a solution that makes the day to day working lives of Field Marketing Agents easier, more efficient and more lucrative.

And we were right. You can see how, below.

How does ZIA Capture work?

We’ve broken the process down below into 5 simple steps.

Step 1 - Download ZIA Capture from the App store onto your iPhone.

Step 2 - Open the app, enter the product name and choose either “Box” for boxes or anything rectangular shaped or ‘Freeform’ for anything that isn’t a box. For this first example, we will select the 'Box' option.

Step 3 - For the best results, place the item you want to onboard on a flat surface. Our app will guide you through the process of photographing your product with easy to follow instructions.

Step 4 - When all sides have been captured, hit “Submit”.

Step 1 - Download ZIA Capture from the App store onto your iPhone.

Step 2 - Open the app, enter the product name and select the “Freeform” option under “Type”. Hit “Start”.

Step 3 - The app will show you how to move around the product so it can capture the images it needs to build the 3D model for your catalogue. Simply follow the instructions and when complete hit the ‘Submit’ button.

Step 4 - The images will then be uploaded into your catalogue and a 3D model of the product will be created in a matter of hours. Head on over to your catalogue to view in detail.

How does it make adding SKUs easier?

You no longer need product artwork

No need to stress about not having the right artwork, you can create an accurate 3D model in minutes and get it onboarded in hours.

Automated Barcode Recognition

ZIA Capture simplifies the process of adding SKUs to your catalogue by automatically recognising and uploading barcodes. This eliminates the need for manual input of EAN/UPC codes, making it effortless for you to search and report on your products and categories within your catalogue.
