Inaccurate & Inconsistent Descriptions Hindered Sales 

Clear and informative content is crucial in today’s fast-paced market with extensive product lines. Our client, however, faced significant challenges with their product descriptions:

  • Inaccurate Information: Many descriptions provided by the vendors lacked complete or relevant details.
  • Inconsistency: The details provided in the descriptions needed to be more consistent between the store and customer copies.
  • Poor Readability: Descriptions were often short, poorly written, and buried key features within the text. This made it difficult for customers to understand the products and ultimately hurt purchase decisions.
  • SEO Impact: Subpar descriptions hampered product discovery in search engines, reducing online visibility.
  • Lack of Personalization: Descriptions didn’t cater to different audiences. Technical details were needed for B2B buyers, while creative descriptions were better suited for e-commerce websites.
  • Product Complexity: With 19 departments and over 3,000 product subclasses, each with unique attributes, descriptions needed nuance to resonate with specific audiences.

Manual Efforts and the Need for Automation 

Manually crafting high-quality descriptions for such a vast and diverse product range was time-consuming and resource-intensive, limiting their ability to create consistent and high-performing content across platforms.

To address these challenges, an automated solution was needed. It had to:

  • Tailor Descriptions: Create descriptions relevant to different user groups.
  • Enhance Existing Content: Use original text and product metadata to enhance existing descriptions.
  • Improve Quality & Relevance: Significantly improve product descriptions’ quality and relevance for various platforms and audiences.

This would save time and resources and ensure product descriptions were informative, engaging, and optimized for different sales channels and target audiences.


Hexaware’s generative AI (gen AI) solution is a cloud-based game-changer for product descriptions. It leverages Google Cloud Platform’s (GCP) PaLM 2 for Text, a powerful large language model (LLM) for gen AI.

This solution tackles the issue of inaccurate and incomplete descriptions head-on. Here’s how it works:

  • Data Enrichment: Gen AI enriches existing product data with relevant information and metadata from various databases, creating a comprehensive picture of each product.
  • Gen AI-Powered Generation: This enriched data is fed into the gen AI model, a sophisticated LLM. The model then generates highly tailored product descriptions optimized for search engines and effective product discovery by customers.
  • Extracting Key Attributes: Gen AI goes beyond superficial descriptions. It also identifies and extracts vital product attributes like features, benefits, and specifications. These attributes are crucial for product filtering and searching, making it easier for customers to find exactly what they need.
  • Fine-Tuning for Audience: We fine-tuned the solution using the client’s domain-specific data, encompassing 19 departments and over 3,000 subclasses. This ensured that descriptions were factual, grounded, informative, comprehensive, and tailored to their target audience, grabbing their attention and promoting engagement.
