Capture and manage product information, and distribute perfectly prepared data to all channels.
The term "Product Information Management" refers to entrepreneurial measures aimed at bringing product information together, centrally manage it and make it available for different output channels. It's about making product data maintenance as efficient as possible, avoiding redundancies and optimizing translation management. One of the most important aspects is the control of data output to multiple marketing and distribution channels (omni-channel marketing). PIM systems are often employed as a complement to ERP systems.

Unique Brand Experience for Customers through Omni-channel Commerce
Customers do not want and should not need to worry about the context, device or location on/in which they see or purchase a product. The purchasing experience for your customers should be as smoothly and seamlessly as possible, so that it is ideally not relevant for the buyer that the sales channel has been changed.

To achieve exactly this effect puts highest demands on a company's product data management. These requirements can usually only be met with a professional product information management system. PIM is therefore the basis needed for the successful implementation of omni-channel marketing or omni-channel commerce concepts.
SEO for Product Data
