Manage an item and all of its attributes consistently across your enterprise/organization.

Delivering stellar customer service can be next to impossible when an item and its attributes are not consistently referenced throughout your omni-channel catalogs. Today’s companies need product information management (PIM) to create one version of each item and its attributes and to seamlessly manage all items across all channels and locations. The internal labor savings and efficiencies companies experience with a PIM solution should also not be underestimated.

Product information management (PIM) means managing the information required to market and sell products through distribution channels. A central set of product data can be used to feed information to media such as web sites, print catalogs, ERP systems, and electronic data feeds to and from trading partners.

Unified Commerce starts with managing your items. It is impossible to deliver a truly unified experience without control and management of your items across your retail enterprise. PIM works to accurately manage product attributes, product variants, catalogs, digital content, centralize your item data, and deliver real-time information across multiple sales channels and market places.

Leverage one version of your item across the omni-channel enterprise.

Benefit from a cloud-based PIM that rapidly integrates with your existing systems, including order management (OMS), e-commerce solution, and Point of Sale (POS).

PIM makes it easy for your customer care representatives, store associates and even your customer to reference, and ultimately sell, an item. You will be able to easily publish items and item attributes to all catalog and e-commerce sites with a single click of a button. Benefits of product information management include:

  • Manage all items from a central location so manufacturers, distributors and retailers can push or pull product data from an ERP, e-commerce platform, POS and/or electronic vendor catalog.
  • Gain greater control over products across multiple buy and sell channels (e-commerce, store and warehouse) on any device.
  • Leverage real-time information to share optimized product data and digital content across all channels.
  • Enable infinite sharing of items between groups and attributes between manufacturers, distributors and retailers.
  • Expand e-commerce by adding item attributes to improve item searches on your e-commerce platform.
  • Integrate disparate systems as our integration framework pushes/pulls data through a standard API.
  • Add unlimited product details and update a list of products with a single click, including attribute sets and groups.
