The group gave Akeneo top marks among PIM providers, and the number one position among open-source systems. The analysis noted that Akeneo made a “noteworthy jump” of 23 percent in its ranking since last year and that the product was the most comprehensive on the market.
The company’s most recent version, Akeneo PIM 2.0, has placed the French startup at the forefront of global PIM platform providers. Product information management, which is becoming increasingly important in eCommerce, helps companies scale their businesses more rapidly by bringing together detailed, high-quality product data across sales channels. Akeneo was founded in France in 2013 and currently operates in France, Germany and the U.S.

This recognition is important for Akeneo and validates all of the hard work our team has been doing to make our software as user-friendly and effective as possible. We try to take a very customer-centric approach to all of our product development, and we are very gratified to see how rapidly our software is being adopted throughout Western Europe.

Tobias Schlotter Akeneo’s general manager for Germany.
