Create Rich, Consistent, and Meaningful Product Details with Computed Attributes


Added-value services such as site search, filters, and digital advice can only be as good as the underlying data.

Meaningful product information is nothing short of necessary if you want to ensure that people can search and find the right products and solutions, make informed decisions with confidence, and experience a consistent, relevant, and positive interaction with your business.

Users demand rich and accurate information. Your goal should be to offer customer-ready product information that is fully-attributed and meaningful not to you, but to your visitors.

However, data management faces many challenges: teams have to spend a great deal of time to consolidate, compile, and update product data manually on a regular basis to make it customer-ready. This can get messy really quickly.


With Computed Attributes, SMARTASSISTANT's Product Tagging Feature, you can quickly, intelligently, and automatically create rich and meaningful product information for increased usability and a better overall experience:

  • Enhance products with meaningful tags and information to optimize product traceability
  • Enable flexible product categorization based on the terminology your visitors use
  • Create intuitive and need-based product information
  • Quick management and tagging of thousands of pieces of product data
  • Increase the quality of your digital advisors, site search, and filters
  • Better user satisfaction and reduced bounce rate
  • More flexibility and independence for business users (Marketing, Product managers, etc.)
