Hello, This plugin was built specifically for my company based on our request back in days and so far we love it! We are using this plugin since the development and I noticed that the developer is updating and supporting this plugin fantastically. I really recommend you to contact the developer if you need a custom plugin for your needs.

I know this is an older plugin but is just what my client needed. His industry is more sku-based than it is product description based. He is in the process of updating over 3000 part descriptions which would have changed all his urls after syncing them up. Now, with just the sku (which will never change)in the url, he can change the descriptions all he wants and the url remains the same. Brilliant!
