Italian term or phrase: prodotto "jolly"
The company wants to develop a "prodotto jolly" that contains elements not covered by other aspects.
I'm only interested in suggestions for "prodotto jolly" (and it's not joker or jack...).
Would you say it's a generic, all-encompassing, blanket product?
Or have I misunderstond the intention?
Thanks
Angela
