If you want to be successful, you have to convince with your products. Product information often provides the decisive impulse to purchase.
Images for brochures, drawings or product texts: Product Information Management (PIM) makes it possible. You organize all product data in a PIM. With IntegrationMan, they end up wherever they are supposed to appear. And this automatically.
Product Information Management (PIM) systems are used when companies keep a large amount of product data: high-resolution photos, exploded drawings, texts optimized for SEO or customer reviews.
Storing data in different places makes your work slow and error-prone. How much time do your colleagues spend searching, matching, and filing? And who has the capacity to do this when new sales channels are opening up all the time?
In a PIM system, all data is in one place. Do you need a special image format for a web store? In the PIM you can find it at the push of a button and systematically edit and publish it.
PROCLANE Integration has developed standard processes for connecting PIM systems to webshops, ERP and CMS systems. This means for you: You manage your master data and availabilities in the ERP, you maintain all product information in the central PIM. Online stores, websites or marketplaces automatically obtain the data from there. For your customers, everything flows together in different front ends.
PROCLANE's PIM interface is part of the IntegrationMan integration solution. All processes between PIM systems, SAP® or other ERP applications, CRM solutions and online stores are seamlessly integrated across system landscapes. They are configurable and can be flexibly adapted to your individual requirements.
Advantages of PIM
- You save time and costs internally: All workflows and information flows related to your products can be optimized and automated thanks to the sophisticated PIM system. This minimizes the resources required for collecting, entering, checking, preparing and forwarding product information.
- One of the most important benefits is that you control all your product data centrally.
- With Product Information Management (PIM), you have a central information system, a media-neutral, information-capable location that provides an overview of all product information. You thus avoid duplication of data and create a basic order. You create a "single point of truth".
- Due to the PIM, you make your data available even faster and achieve a high degree of speed and responsiveness, as you have lower resource requirements and automated processes. The PIM reduces the time-to-market.
PROCLANE integrates systems via the integration platform IntegrationMan. Many of the integration processes required for the connection of PIM systems are already prefabricated in it. We therefore efficiently implement integration projects with PIM systems known to us in a fraction of the usual time.
Currently, ready iMan PIM adapters are available for the PIM systems from AKENEO, ASIM, Contentserv, crossbase, Cumulus, Mediando, Neoseven, OMN, OpusCapita, Pimcore, SyncForce and viamedici. We integrate all other PIM systems via standard programming interfaces, so-called APIs. The IntegrationMan integration processes are SAP-certified.
Pimcore is an award-winning content, data management and multichannel publishing suite. Together with an OXID web shop, PROCLANE Commerce has developed the best-integrated shop/PIM solution for SAP systems: OXID4SAP+PIM.
