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


Why Retailers & Distributors Need a PIM Solution

Retailers and distributors regularly deal with large volumes of product information – hundreds of thousands of SKUs, each with their own assortment of attributes that are changing rapidly. That’s why a PIM for retail, wholesale, and distribution enterprises must be scalable and responsive.

Akeneo offers a PIM for retailers and distributors that helps you organize your product information, develop the right catalogs for your omnichannel strategy, and deliver compelling product experiences to support great customer experiences.

Leading retailers and distributors choose Akeneo

Centralize your product information

You have product data coming from dozens of heterogeneous sources. You need a single system of record for all your products, for all your teams, and for all your channels. With Akeneo PIM as a central hub of product information, you can control and manage the data and the process, making your teams more productive and efficient.

Distribute product data to all channels

Easily spread your enriched and complete product information to all your channels — in-store, eCommerce, mobile, marketplace, print, and more. Our connectors, syndication add-on, and marketplace extensions can hook into virtually every platform so you can efficiently keep your product information consistent across channels.

Onboard your suppliers

Retailers and distributors often work with hundreds of suppliers, every one of them providing differently formatted data, documents, and visual assets. That’s a nightmare to manage. With Akeneo PIM, you can offer a cloud-based supplier onboarder so suppliers provide you just the data you need, at the right time, and in your desired format!
