Project Description:
We have a Magento 1.7.0.2 and want to automate product feeds from distributors, such Ingram Micro, Tech Data, Synnex, and ASIpartner.

- Import content from ICECat - product data, images and spec sheets using Mageconnector
- Check real time price and availability from distributors (XML).

Offers automated import
Import will need to have some mapping capabilities, which should be interfaced in the back office of the Magento. ICEcat can provide a categorization advise in most cases, but you have to be compatible with ICEcat category structure, which is multilevel and derived from UNSPSC. The same stands for manufacturers list.
Interface/screens required:
- Map vendors (from distri data into standard vendor)
- Map categories subcategories (from distri data into standard category subcategories)
- Distri import status screen (import dashboard)

Distri selector module
This module will be needed to resolve ambiguities in product assortment and optimize product coverage in shop.
It will create a best products selection, based on distri selection rules. like:
- Find the best price among [SELECTION] offers,
Where [SELECTION] could be defined by parameters:
- Manufacturer / Any manufacturer
- Category / Any category
- Part number
Assortment in the environment will be refreshed after every successful import job and / or in the end of batch session timeframe. Batch session timeframe = time when assortment updates in shop isn't significant, e.g. from 01:00 till 07:00. This is to lower the server load.

ICEcat content import module
Content import module will import content from ICEcat XML repository. It will put it into a local database, and data will be shown on product details page.
Data to be imported are:
- Product names / descriptions
- Images / gallery / multimedia
- Specification
- Related products (x-selling / up-selling data)
Currently no back office interface is supposed for this data management, existing data storage tables should be used as much as possible. Data will be stored in local database in a well-structured form, suitable for lookup (winnowing) and product comparison. Winnowing (layered ) will be performed by the most useful differentiating factors for the particular type of product. As soon as no back office for data management is supposed, all search settings are to be reused as they are setup in ICEcat (ICEcat provides certain defaults, as you can see in www.icecat.biz )
The search will be filter-based user will have possibility to create a product filter based on:
- manufacturer
- stock (yes/no)
- price breaks
- Specification (search breaks will be based on ICEcat searchable features)
- MPN and/or SKU
