Product Information Management (PIM) software handles the process of managing data required for the marketing and sale of products.
PIM software manages complex product data and digital assets in a central platform. This enables brands, manufacturers, distributors, and retailers to work from a single source of truth.
What does a PIM system do?
Collect & Centralize - A PIM system collates product information from multiple internal and external data sources such as an ERP, PLM, or supplier feeds.
Update & Enrich - In a PIM platform you can cleanse, enrich, and optimize all the data and assets you hold for your products (SKUs). This could be anything from technical specifications such as dimensions and materials, to the commercial and marketing information such as great product descriptions and pricing information. You can also manage data structure and product relationships.
Publish & Connect - From a PIM, this data can be easily published across sales channels, such as marketplaces, resellers, social media platforms, eCommerce sites. Customers and colleagues alike can access all the information they need
