What is a PIM and why do you need one?

A Product Information Management (PIM) solution is a business application that provides a single place to collect, manage, and enrich your product information, create a product catalog, and distribute it to your sales and eCommerce channels.

A PIM solution makes it faster and easier to create and deliver compelling product experiences.

What is Product Information Management?

Product information management is the process of managing all the information required to market and sell products through your distribution channels.


Why do you need a PIM?

PIM tools make the product information management process fast, efficient, and productive.

With a PIM, everyone involved can collaborate to get products ready for sale on time and on budget.
