Product Experience



Today, we’re raising our glass to the innovators, the leaders, and the product experience champions who are setting new standards and driving remarkable growth in their respective industries. Join us in celebrating the winners of the Unlock 2024 PXM Champions Awards! 

The Unlock 2024 PXM Champions Awards is our way of recognizing the trailblazers who have harnessed the power of product experience strategies with Akeneo to thrive in the dynamic omnichannel environment. 

This year, we honor winners across six distinguished categories, each representing a unique facet of product experience mastery. Though the selection process was anything but easy, each of our award winners proved they’re changing the game by tapping into the magic of product experiences powered by Akeneo. 

Let’s dive in and explore what makes these winners, winners!


The Expansion Award: Fossil

The Expansion Award recognizes those who are creating better experiences in their current channels, introducing impactful new channels, and connecting with new audiences, all to drive meaningful business results. 

A powerhouse in the lifestyle accessories industry, Fossil is known for its diverse portfolio of fashion watches, jewelry, handbags, and small leather goods. With a presence in 140 countries and 30,000 points of distribution, including 400 company-owned retail locations, Fossil brings each brand’s story to life on a global scale.

Fossil’s journey from relying on Excel spreadsheets to adopting Akeneo’s cloud-based PIM solution showcases their commitment to creating seamless product experiences across the globe. This strategic move has not only centralized their product data management but also scaled operations efficiently across 140 countries without the need to expand their team. Fossil’s success story is a testament to the power of embracing flexible, business-driven solutions to drive meaningful growth.


The Accelerator Award: Drawer 

The Acceleration Award recognizes those who have significantly reduced the time-to-market of their products, decreased the number of steps, and cut back on manual work to accelerate growth. 

Drawer, an online furniture seller operating in the French market, faced numerous challenges before implementing Akeneo PIM. They source products from various providers and sell through their website and 10 marketplaces. With a catalog of 4500 SKUs, Drawer sought a solution to efficiently manage their product data and drive business growth.

The implementation of Akeneo PIM and Supplier Data Manager catalyzed their transition to an automated system, drastically cutting down product creation time and boosting efficiency. In their journey with Akeneo, Drawer transitioned from a manual, multi-actor process to a nearly automated system, empowering their team and boosting efficiency. They’ve surpassed their own records by creating 200 new references in just one month, demonstrating an unprecedented pace in product launches.


The Global Award: Insight 

The Global Award recognizes those who are expanding their business outside of their HQ country, flourishing in new territories, and working with local teams to connect with new audiences. 

Insight Enterprises, a publicly traded global technology company leverages its technical expertise, broad solutions portfolio, and supply chain capabilities to help businesses achieve ambitious goals as a systems integrator. With a focus on cloud and data center transformation, connected workforce, and digital innovation, Insight empowers organizations worldwide to navigate the complexities of the digital age and drive meaningful business outcomes.

Before adopting Akeneo, Insight faced challenges related to a lack of control over data/content, limited business ability for enhancements and new functionality, and a heavy reliance on IT involvement. However, with Akeneo’s user-friendly interface and robust features, Insight has autonomously maintained and expanded a vast catalog of 1.4 million products, significantly reducing reliance on IT resources. The implementation has not only improved catalog content completeness but also propelled eCommerce revenue, marking a significant leap towards achieving their global ambitions.

With Akeneo’s implementation in North America proving successful, Insight is now poised to extend its capabilities to Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA), targeting expansion across 11 new countries in the region.


The Leadership Award: Peavey Industries

The Leadership Award recognizes those who are improving the lives of their teams through more efficient workflows, creating opportunities to be less operational and more strategic, and empowering their teams to grow.

With a focus on essential products and services for the rural lifestyle, Peavey Mart has established itself as a trusted destination for quality goods and personalized customer service.

Akeneo’s intuitive user interface, robust API, and seamless integration capabilities aligned perfectly with Peavey Mart’s vision to build a solid and sustainable technology infrastructure that can support optimal product experiences.

The results? A 73% increase in productivity and enhanced strategic focus on product experiences, enhanced personalization options for consumers, and improved forecasting abilities. Peavey Industries’ journey underscores the importance of empowering teams with efficient workflows to drive growth and innovation. With a focus on driving innovation and delivering concrete business results, Peavey Mart remains committed to leveraging technology to enhance the retail experience for their customers.


The Experience Award: Mobili Fiver

The Experience Award recognizes those who provide exceptional product experiences, creates content for the right audience at the right place, and is cutting edge in how they represent it to their consumers.

With it’s product range spanning a diverse array of meticulously designed furniture, Mobili Fiver has established itself as a leader in the furniture industry.

Mobili Fiver’s previous product information platform lacked the flexibility required for a comprehensive presentation of furniture products, hindering their ability to communicate the richness of their offerings to customers.  Manual and time-consuming processes hindered their agility in introducing new products to the market, responding to trends, and meeting customer demands in a timely manner.

Since adopting Akeneo, Mobili Fiver has been able to address their previous challenges, allowing them to create, configure, and present furniture products with unprecedented ease and speed. The result has been a more informed and satisfied customer base, coupled with an agile and efficient internal workflow that positions Mobili Fiver for continued success in the furniture ecommerce landscape. Leveraging Akeneo’s PIM solution to overcome flexibility and agility challenges, Mobili Fiver is now able to showcase their craftsmanship and innovation through detailed product presentations.
