It’s official, iWeb have achieved Bronze Solution Partner status with Akeneo PIM! As a leading open source software solution, the Akeneo PIM is designed to help retailers find efficient answers to their multichannel needs through a centralised and streamlined product data management system.
In addition, the Akeneo PIM functions simultaneously as a productivity tool, enabling both marketing and development teams to facilitate a more organised and streamlined workflow. Let’s find out more about PIM and how it can benefit everyone.
What is a PIM?
A PIM (Product Information Management) is both a product information storage and management system, that centralises and harmonises all your marketing and technical information for product listings and catalogues.
In addition to storing and transferring data, PIMs strengthen overall data quality and encourage data audits and cleansing before the information is passed on to the sales channel.
To see how a PIM system can help eCommerce businesses in real terms, watch ‘The Story of Julia’, a marketing manager who was saved by Akeneo.
