Creating Seamless Business Processes with PIM
Collecting, Enriching, and Spreading Data Across Multiple Channels
As companies continue to adopt several new technologies, the need to create unified digital experiences through seamless integrations has rapidly increased. Our dedicated Product Information Management (PIM) implementation team will work to efficiently manage, gather, and distribute product information for your business - all while cleansing your data to ensure a seamless integration across channels.
What is PIM?
A Product Information Management system allows your team to move product data seamlessly across channels. PIM streamlines the way that your users interact with the data your team is managing day-in and day-out. With PIM, business users can automate the creation, enrichment, translation, and publication of product information and content directly inside of this key system. It’s foundational to providing an exceptional customer experience in a global, omnichannel market. Through automated and workflow driven governance within the system itself, product stakeholders have a one-stop shop solution to onboard, enrich, and deliver their product data.
Our PIM Expertise
We look at every PIM integration project individually. Our first step is information gathering and understanding all of the business units that will be interfacing with the system. We focus on maintaining data integrity while eliminating inefficiencies in the workflow. Once all integration requirements are gathered, we create an in-depth, field by field integration plan. Our team provides a detailed plan laying out how data will flow between your website and various systems. If you are unsure of your current needs, our integration consultants can help. We will work to suggest opportunities to connect your systems and find areas to consolidate redundant software.
