Juice. The lighting industry experts.
Over the last 15 years we have helped international lighting clients develop brand strategies, implement multi-channel, multi-language marketing campaigns and use innovative software solutions to deliver efficiency and real return on investment.

Lighting technology continues to evolve, but one thing will stay the same.

DW Windsor - Case Study
Award-winning exterior lighting specialists DW Windsor, asked us to help them to showcase their new brand identity and launch a new website to reflect their exciting new style. They also wanted to take the opportunity to build on their excellent customer service by streamlining customer and company access to their online product information.
Early on in the process, we suggested using our Product Information Manager (PIM) software to optimise the user experience when searching for product information on their new website and marketing materials.
Streamlining time-hungry product updates
Historically, DW Windsor had a huge amount of product info stored in complicated Excel spreadsheets on local machines. Updating was a laborious process, one product at a time, and transferring the information to a website or marketing materials was literally a cut-and-paste job, many times over. In addition, they found that too much key product information was held by one or two key stakeholders – a risky situation that often caused bottlenecks in the production of new or updated sales material. They wanted local product managers in multiple locations to be able to share and gather product information quickly, easily and securely via a single online portal.
Introducing PIM to DW Windsor
Juice Lighting’s PIM system is an intelligent technology that enables any company to store all of it’s product information in one unified database. This info can then be fed out to any number of channels including catalogues and apps. Importantly, any change can be shared to all channels and made live immediately.
With DW Windsor, we could see that adoption of our PIM solution would result in a more efficient way of working. More than just a CMS, a PIM indicates a step forward in the way in which it exports data automatically to multiple channels from a single web-based user interface. It can help organise product information, open a new sales channel in minutes, and save time and money by reducing repetitive updating tasks by up to 90%, and all for a monthly fee that’s cheaper than the office cleaning bill.
A smarter way of working in the digital age
Adoption of our PIM system has given DW Windsor the ability to repurpose data for multiple locations and channels from a single central source and at the touch of button. Product specs can change weekly, and the PIM works as a bridge between product managers and marketing, enabling everyone to have access to up-to-date info instantly. This generates huge time savings by eliminating the laborious task of updating all relevant places with new information manually. Gone are the days when a separate web team was needed to make every text update, and artworkers had to update individual product information sheets. Adoption of the Juice PIM system has changed all of this. DW’s product information lives in one secure place, is accessible 24/7 and can be shared with third parties if required. Data is input once and it is automatically pushed out to all relevant places.
