Industry-Recognized Category Management Leadership
Metrofuser is the company behind some of the biggest names out there. Leading organizations look to us for repair solutions. Our comprehensive program is helping retailers meet and exceed their category management goals.
Product Content Management
Product content including images, specs, and marketing copy all delivered in search engine optimized (SEO) and/or traditional formats. Our catalogs and content are optimized to enable improved site search and search-based merchandising. Addition merchandising can be achieved by enabling cross-sell links.
Category Captain Program
The increasing complexity of product categories are leading retailers to recognize that managing these categories would be increasingly complex, time-consuming and expensive. So we have begun partnering with retailers for recommendations about which brands to stock vs. drop ship, which old SKUs to exclude, and how to price products in each category. Metrofuser’s deep knowledge of this category also can yield higher sales.
The immediate benefits are obvious and compelling. By outsourcing the management of the parts category, retailers can draw on our superior knowledge as we already have lots of data on consumers. Retailers just don’t have the resources to keep close tabs on sales trends for so many different products. Outsourcing category management is excellent way to manage better with the same resources.

Metrofuser is the leader in both technical and sales training within the imaging industry. We can optimize your existing program or educate from the ground up. Topics include the function of each product, quality features that are designed and manufactured into each part. Our trainers will customize a program to help meet your goals.
