The LUKAS Standard 360° data package – boost efficiency, sales and customer loyalty with comprehensive tool and product data
Achieve your full potential
Sales through online platforms and shop systems have been rising for years in virtually all industries. It is therefore no surprise that these channels are increasingly being used to sell professional tools as well. Industrial customers in particular like to purchase products online. This trend looks set to continue. Thus, it is not surprising that specialist retailers are increasingly focusing on selling through their own online shop or marketplaces.
Serving customers well and offering them a superior customer experience is all about providing the right data about products, services and potential applications. But this is often a painstaking process that requires expert knowledge of both online and offline aspects.

WHAT THE LUKAS DATA PACKAGE OFFERS
With high quality data, you enhance the user-friendliness of your online shop: Your customers get precisely the product information they need and are looking for. By combining engaging text with clear images and icons, it shows the most important information at a glance. This means that instead of looking for more information sources, your customer stays on your shop site and purchases the products they need there.
LUKAS offers uniquely comprehensive and informative product data that helps you generate more sales from your existing product range and grow into new markets quickly and easily. You can also benefit from cross-selling of accessories and associated products, thereby achieving greater margins.
The use of conventional formats (BMEcat 2005, BMEcat 1.2, CSV and XLSX) allows you to quickly incorporate the LUKAS Standard 360° data package into your ERP, PIM or online shop.
Thanks to the high quality of the LUKAS data, you no longer have to waste time on painstaking data cleansing and tasks such as creating product photos, technical drawings and texts.
Our data is specially designed and optimised for online shops. We collaborated with the leading online retailers and an innovative PIM provider to analyse and prepare the most important product data. This means we can offer the exact data that your target customers look for.
Our current LUKAS Standard BMEcat contains a total of 3,500 items with excellent data quality. You are therefore certain to find something for your shop. We also keep these products in stock so that you can get even larger quantities delivered quickly.
Our texts are aimed directly at your customers. They explain the benefits, added value and special features of the respective product quickly and simply.
Judging the size of all kinds of tools from images can be difficult. That is why we created individual technical drawings for almost all of our products. We provide these to you so that your customers always know all the important measurements.
Our clear machine icons show customers the machines on which they can use the respective tool.
Every manufacturer has their own product lines, often creating confusion for buyers. We have made this a thing of the past by organising our products into a single evaluation system with four clear criteria: work speed, service life, surface quality and handling/ergonomics. These criteria clearly illustrate the features of the respective LUKAS tool, allowing customers to judge for themselves which product is best for their goals and expectations. We provide our evaluation system as a .jpg file together with further informative product images, and can easily integrate these in your shop.
