Turn Browsing Into Buying with a PIM Tool


PIM also known as Product Information Management is the process of managing all the information required to market and sell products through your distribution channels. PIM tools make the product information management process fast, efficient, and productive.

With a PIM, everyone involved can collaborate to get products ready for sale, on time and within budget.

Here’s the process of how a PIM generally works:

  • Collect data from a system such as ERP.
  • Import data via CSV and XLSX files for pre-built connectors.
  • Onboard products data directly from suppliers in your format.
  • Connect to digital asset management systems for images, videos and documents.
