For retailers, the key benefits of the Pinterest Integration include:

• Attract, engage and listen to consumers while they network with friends, family, and colleagues

• Accelerate innovation by easily integrating popular social destinations without the burden of development costs
• Enable more targeted and concise pinning of specific items down to color and size by allowing consumers to pin and share the exact SKU of the product they want
