What Is A PIM?

    A PIM (or Product Information Manager) is a central repository of all the product data of a company. A PIM helps with the management and normalisation of product information leading to a better classified, richer product database that can be propagated to a number of different sources.

    Who needs it

    A PIM is for anyone dealing with a large catalog of products who:

    • Wants to centralize their data for every sales channel.
    • Wants to enforce a high standard of data completeness and consistency.
    • Needs to reduce duplicate product data.
    • Dreams of giant spreadsheets monsters coming from outer space to corrupt their data.
