We are delighted to announce that Akeneo PIM 1.7 is now available! And we are introducing two new features! The Akeneo Teamwork Assistant for Enterprise Edition Users, and our new web API!
Akeneo Teamwork Assistant
We have always viewed PIM as a productivity tool. Its purpose is to centralize the product information and provide users with an easy platform for enriching, editing, and updating product information. By allowing employees throughout an organization to contribute and enrich product information based on their expertise, teams can significantly improve the quality of product information.
The Akeneo Teamwork Assistant is a collaboration tool that will improve how you work as a team. Users no longer have to waste their time guessing what products need to be enriched, the Teamwork Assistant handles it all.
This new feature allows you to create enrichment projects for your team and easily follow its progress. For example, let’s say you have a Summer collection that needs to be prepared for an upcoming web launch. You’re going to need to assign a variety of tasks to your team (marketing descriptions, pictures, translations, etc.) and make sure that the project gets completed on time. Simply select the products that need to be enriched or edited and Akeneo Teamwork Assistant will automatically assign the required tasks. No need to manually define who needs to do what or to build complex Gantt charts. The Akeneo Teamwork Assistant is here to streamline and simplify your collaboration!
Akeneo Web API
We know this has been a highly anticipated feature, and it is finally here! The new Akeneo web API is available for Enterprise and Community Editions of Akeneo PIM.
This comprehensive REST API enables interactions with your product catalog in both read and write mode. Building a connector on the top of the Akeneo platform is now easier than ever! No need to learn the Symfony framework or worry about performance: you can build your connector in any language and continue to benefit from the unparalleled scalability of the Akeneo platform.
Want to learn more about this brand new API: we built a new website just for Akeneo developers to document these new capabilities.
We have improved and updated many features in this new release, so feel free to take a look at the full release notes to learn about all the latest changes:
We will also be holding our traditional webinar to present and discuss this new version. We will review all the improvements and new features, and of course answer all of your questions about Akeneo PIM 1.7.
We will only be hosting one webinar on Thursday, Mars 23rd, 2017 at 5pm CET. So make sure to save the date if you want to attend!
Feel free to talk about it to your colleagues if you think they would be interested in attending the webinar or reading more about this latest release.
And don’t worry if you’re busy during that time, a recording will be available on our blog and Youtube channel.
We are looking forward to showing you all the exciting things we have been working on with this new version!
