What is PIM?
With PIM or Product Information Management systems, business users can manage all of their product content for all of their channels… in one centralized resource.
Read our playful PIM ebook to see how it works.
How PIM Helps
Product governance + clarity: With a PIM system, businesses can see and easily manage the many people and processes needed to create, enrich and share their product information – internally and externally.
Get products to market faster: PIM drastically reduces the time it takes to get a product to market with transparent, cross-team collaboration and product content completion rules.
Sales lift: with consistent product information across channels, consumers are more likely to trust and buy from you, whether you are a brand or a retailer. For distributors and B2B, consistent specs drive conversion and loyalty. Coherent product stories and messages help move merchandise.
The PIM Process
Extract basic product data from systems like ERP, PLM, and CRM into the PIM system.
Different stakeholders add text, descriptions, images, videos, documents, specifications, attributes, and customer testimonials
(information that makes the product appealing and trustworthy).
Plan & Release
Synchronize publication and information release strategies such as product assortments, groups, looks, showrooms, campaigns and more by channel.
Push product information to multiple channels: eCommerce/mCommerce, Print, POS, advertisements, email marketing, and in-store displays. When automated, this is sometimes called syndication.
