Product Information Management - PIM

Product Information Management or PIM is about processes and technologies that are focused on collecting, optimize and publish product information. Managing product data efficiently has become a big challenge for many firms. Product data must be customized to fit pricelists, catalogs, web, e-Commerce and mobile devices.


Product Information Management is developed because of the high requirements for information and types of information that shows and describes a company's products in a variety of sales and marketing platforms. If you want to publish data on different markets and for specific customers, all information must be differentiated in order to fit the markets, currencies and languages. As a result, companies are forced to use many resources on maintenance and publishing their product data.


It has become necessary to have a flexible and scalable system setup, so you can concentrate on reaching out to customers and become the preferred supplier.

If you win in various sales and marketing channels requires enriched and optimized product informations, and it must be possible without putting the organization down.

Therefore, you have to look at PIM, rather than forcing all into the ERP systems, because it is simply far greater in doing it that way.

Product Information Management systems must generally support data differentiated in several different languages, for different markets and on different media such as print, PDF, websites, web shops, apps, data feeds to customers and suppliers and others.

All this must be handled while data is only one place in one version, so in that way you ensure what is called "Single Point of Truth", it means that there is only one set of updated product information per product which then is used extensively.

However, this process does not have to be an expensive business. With a smarter and more efficient PIM system, you will be able to save your business time and money. The solution is the Danish manufactured PIM system Perfion.

The following illustration shows the simple philosophy of Product Information Management: Centralicering of data -> Data maintenance and enrichment -> Publish to different channels
