I have a number of stores (for different clients) for which I syndicate the same catalog to multiple sales channels (i.e. distributors to dealers). I need the ability to maintain a master catalog which I can edit and then syndicate out the changes to multiple clients in a single action. Each of our clients are administered as independent connections since they carry different product lists and different brands.

This feature is already available in most PIM solutions.

Thanks for a suggestion, John!
Pardon, I didn't quite catch. Do you want to integrate such thing in Store Manager ? or do you want to use special service like a Store Manager + PIM ?

In the short term, I would like to have it in the Store Manager. I have about 20 stores (connections) in the Store Manager and anticipate going to more than 100 as I build the catalogs for individual industries.
So, I would like to have a library of "master" manufacturer catalogs and be able to make an addition to one of the catalogs and then syndicate the updated catalog to all of the dealers that carry that manufacturer's catalog.
Eventually, I would like an integrated tool that will allow me to use the Store Manager between the Magento store and a PIM that contains all of the "master" Catalogs, but also knows what the pricing models are for each sales channel.
