Why PIM?

Because products matter... Product information management has been around ever since the dawn of commerce. Every webshop owner is doing it in some form. It’s an important part of managing an eCommerce store and just like CRM and ERP, PIM is always going to be an existing business necessity.

With the digitalization of information and the rise of omnichannel, now more than ever webshop owners need to pay attention to their product data. It won’t change what needs to be done. What it will do, though, is open up new doors and opportunities.

It will empower you to deliver a consistent and accurate user experience to all sales channels and communicate what you sell in the best way possible.
