The 14-day free trial gives prospective users the ability to self-educate on how Akeneo PIM can help them to sell better, sell faster and sell anywhere

BOSTON, MA – February 17, 2022 – Akeneo, the global leader in product experience management (PXM), announced today it will begin offering a 14-day free trial version of it’s flagship solution Akeneo PIM. Through this initiative, both prospective buyers looking for a best-of-breed product information management (PIM) solution and existing users of Akeneo’s open-source Community Edition will be able to experience the capabilities offered in Growth Edition and preview Enterprise Edition at no cost, and without having to engage with a sales person first.

PIM is the keystone for modern commerce, enabling brands, manufacturers and retailers to accelerate their digital transformation efforts and pivot to or add new omnichannel business models, or re-architect or replatform their current commerce stack. With Akeneo’s free trial, users will be able to experience for themselves how effectively organizing, structuring and managing product information can help them scale operations and expand organizational reach.

The core of Akeneo PXM Studio, Akeneo PIM, allows these organizations to centralize, enrich, and distribute product information from hundreds to more than 60 million SKUs. With Akeneo PIM, companies have access to a flexible and scalable PIM solution that fits neatly into existing tech stacks – be they traditional or best-of-breed with headless commerce – and streamlines workflows to allow product teams to focus on essential tasks.

“PIM is no longer just nice to have for today’s e-commerce teams, it has become an essential tool for businesses looking to unlock next-level growth,” said Nicolas Dupont, Head of Product at Akeneo. “Through PIM, teams can effectively manage increasingly complex product information while enriching customer experience across vastly different channels.”
