Product Information Management (PIM)
PIM (Product Information Management) systems streamline and automate product information tasks. Such systems are primarily used by product managers, marketing teams, and sales departments to optimize offer management.
PIM systems consolidate product information from various sources, store them in one location, and enable brands to publish them across different channels. Data can easily be searched, verified, and enriched. Plus, updating data and adding new product information takes significantly less time.
PIM systems ensure control over product information and lead to lower service costs. They organize and structure offers, making them more coherent. If you’re in e-commerce or omnichannel sales – or if you’re thinking about entering new markets – consider investing in a PIM system.
PIM systems store key data for companies launching new sales channels or operating in multiple markets. Thanks to better offer management and online catalog management, they also enhance sharing such data with partners and clients.
Who needs PIM solutions?
Your company should consider PIM if:
