IDC Spotlight Report: The Power of a PX Strategy in Omnichannel Commerce


Why Brands and Manufacturers need a PIM Solution

Brands and manufacturers have two options for selling their products: sell direct to consumers in-store, on eCommerce sites, and through marketplaces, or sell via retailers and distributors. Often even both! Whatever your strategy, different sales channels have different requirements. A capable PIM for brands helps ensure the right information is presented in the right way in every channel. 

Akeneo PIM helps you keep your product data accurate and organized. It was built to handle all your product information, including descriptions, technical data, regulatory data, images, and other attributes. Even with hundreds of thousands of products and multiple distribution channels, Akeneo can handle it all.

What brand and manufacturing marketers are saying

The way Akeneo PIM has made our product data management processes more smooth and seamless has been a key factor in our success, and was essential to meet our digital objectives.

Akeneo PIM’s workflow allows us to be more efficient. We can exchange product information more easily, and have a product enriched before it even arrives in our warehouse.

Using Akeneo completely changed the way we work, giving us structure and the ability to monitor and report on the completeness of ranges. It then became clearer what effect the missing information would have from a front-end point of view on the website and was in turn easier to fix.
