Akeneo continues to grow in Northern Europe with e-commerce industry leader Vaimo

Boston, March. 30, 2018 — Akeneo is excited to welcome our latest partner Vaimo to the

Akeneo solution partner program. Vaimo, a major commerce solution provider headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden, demonstrates our continued expansion and investment in Northern Europe and UK. Benefiting from an already established ecosystem of partners (more than 70 solution partners worldwide), Akeneo continues to focus on building a strong channel of high quality partners to ensure the successful implementation of Akeneo PIM solutions around the world.

A Dedicated PIM Business Unit

Recognizing the importance of PIM in supporting multi-channel digital solutions, Vaimo acquired Notitium in September, 2017, a partner of Akeneo with strong competency implementing solutions to manage product information. The acquisition, along with this new Akeneo/Vaimo partnership, has formed the foundation of Vaimo’s dedicated PIM business unit which allows Vaimo to offer a complete commerce solution to e-merchants that includes both the e-commerce platform and PIM solutions.

Akeneo PIM fits very well in the Commerce solutions we provide. Akeneo’s similarities with Magento, both technical and functional, creates efficiency regarding integrations and cost of ownership.

An Open Source Leader Delivers Akeneo in Scandinavia

Vaimo has always been focused on and deeply committed to the open source community having earned their status as a Global Elite Magento solution partner. Vaimo delivers Akeneo as their open source PIM solution, which is already tightly integrated with Magento.

We are very excited to be partnering with Vaimo as they have the skills, experience, and competency to implement multi-channel solutions for clients who are looking for a better way to manage product information. Vaimo is known and recognized as a leader in helping companies implement their digital commerce strategies so establishing a partnership with them in Scandinavia and the other countries where Vaimo is present is very exciting.
