Ecommerce PIM integration
Ecommerce PIM integration – Product information management software is critical for modern retail shops. Either eCommerce stores (online/offline) OR marketplaces.
Product data is something highly critical for the eCommerce Shops or Marketplaces. here are key challenges
- Data consistency
- Correct and concise product data
- Error-free content management
- Multi-lingual E-commerce product data
- Multi-channel product data on various channels e.g Mobile, POS ( point of sale )
- Digital Asset Management ( DAM ) across every channel from CMS to Ecommerce( Images, Videos, files )
- Master data management ( MDM ) – Reusable master data component for segmentation, marketing automation & personalization
Hence, It becomes quite necessary for the store owners to keep a hawk-eye on the product information and deliver a rich content experience to the users.
In general, the product data can be collected from different sources in different formats like spreadsheets, CRM, loosely threaded stacks or some other data formats.
Apart from this same data can exist as a complete clone when it comes to locale or lingual dependant data management.
In such a scenario, It becomes a very complex process to manage the data on different platforms and get quality assured all the time.
PIM stands for Product Information Manager which is used to manage the complex data at a larger scale. PIM has the ability to collect and store data, which is provided by different sources in different formats.
PIM has the following set of key advantages:-

PIM gives a ready to use interface to manage the complex data structure for the products, keeping performance and scalability on the top of everything.
