Custom SKU Development Services - Product SKU Building

Outsource Custom SKU Development Services

As a part of the eCommerce industry, you might have heard of SKU or stock keeping unit. But do you know what exactly it is? Well, it is a store’s product, catalog, or service identification code. Often portrayed as the machine-readable barcode that is scanned to track the inventory, SKUs are codes that are assigned to all the billable entities of your online store.

Now, you might have an engaging and user-friendly website but eCommerce goes far beyond. It requires you to update, manage and provide accurate information to shoppers without fail. Anything that misleads the shoppers can hugely tarnish your brand image and result in huge monetary losses, which is why stores, today, make sure they upload accurate descriptions, provide professional product images, and integrate other vital product/service/catalog information.

Fortunately, you don’t have to manage all of this on your own. This cumbersome task can be delegated to SKU development experts who offer a comprehensive suite of custom SKU development services. SKU building is highly recommended as an online business resource that helps in the management of product databases. It is used by top sellers in the market, including Amazon, McMaster, Carr, and Grainger, etc.

QuikTek Info’s SKU development services are aimed at delivering an enhanced shopping experience to your customers, helping you get more conversions. We start off by gathering attributed product content before moving on to optimizing it, so that you, as an eCommerce store owner, get to use it to your advantage. Also, as one of the leading providers of SKU production services, we understand how important robust product data is for faceted and keyword search. And it is with this understanding that we optimize it through "Normalization," ensuring that what your customers get to see are concise search results, with relatively fewer page views.

Our custom SKU development services entail both Content Gathering and Normalization and have been specifically designed to give your SKU building efforts a much-needed boost.

Content Gathering

We follow a two-fold approach, wherein we gather the data directly from the manufacturer sources, and then subject it to a thorough evaluation to ensure that the data at disposal is complete and accurate.


After our experts are done collecting the data, we get down to aligning it, forming a rather concise and discrete list of values. These values are either simply formatted or conceptually evaluated with like-meanings, depending on what the need is. What also sets apart our product SKU building services is that our analysts and consultants make it a point to research individual products and values, thereby contributing to the availability of clear and accurate selections in a faceted search environment.

SKU Development and Maintenance: Practices We Follow

With world-class custom SKU development services, we can help bring about the necessary changes in less than no time. Our team follows a set of practices while generating and maintaining SKUs, some of which include:

  • Following a scheme that starts with letters, as it helps numbers stand out in a spreadsheet and allows them to differ visually.
  • Representing the initial letters of the SKU by the most crucial attribute of the product.
  • Avoiding beginning SKU numbers with zero as certain software might consider the value of zero as null and remove it.
  • Never using numbers that look like letters. For example, ‘0’ and ‘O’ can create confusion among inventory handling teams.
  • Deciding upon a convention and following it in naming all the products. The classification we decide is maintained with uniformity for easy understanding.
  • Trying to make SKUs short in length and following the same length all across to build consistency in your database.
  • Avoiding special characters while coding the SKUs as they may confuse the computers.
  • Avoiding using seller SKUs as they are meant to be customized as per one’s requirement.

There’s not much of a difference. SKUs can be interpreted by humans, whereas barcodes require a scanner.


2. How do I create an SKU?

  • Step 1: Identify product characteristics/attributes (such as material, color, size, etc.) that you want to track.
