 PIM choice for your organisation’s needs.

AKENEO: PIM WITH RESULTS

Akeneo is a global leader in Product Experience Management (PXM) – PIM –  It helps businesses grow bigger, faster, by delivering a high quality, consistent product experience to customers across your most important channels; from eCommerce and mobile, to print and points of sale. 

We love recommending Akeneo for its open platform, leading PIM, helpful add-ons, API-based connectors to leading eCommerce platforms (like Salesforce) and feeds to thousands of marketplaces.

The top 3 results our clients report after implementing Akeneo PIM: 

  1. Dramatically improved product data quality and accuracy
  2. Simpler catalogue management
  3. Faster, more straightforward sharing of product information across channels and locations
Here’s why you might need a new PIM in 2023

Are you looking to gain a competitive edge in your industry? The right PIM solution might be the key you’re looking for to enhance your business performance and success. From expanding assortments to be better positioned in tender processes, to providing richer information on top-performing products, or optimising your top sellers and increasing their appeal, here are 4 reasons to upgrade your PIM.

  1. So much of your business is based on harnessing your product information and master data. Next-level PIMs boost your bandwidth and allow you to break down those damaging product information siloes. 
  2. Utilise a modern PIM solution to expand your assortments – which makes it simpler to position yourself positively in tender processes 
  3. You can’t grow if you’re held back by insufficient or thin data. Gain richer information on your top-performing products with a PIM that can provide you with all the details.  
  4. Old-style PIMs could be holding you back from scaling up. Modern solutions don’t have this problem, instead, they allow you to identify and optimise your top sellers and increase their appeal to your customers.

Akeneo is an ideal solution for companies looking to keep up with upswings in customer demand and increased assortment size. With its simple data model, intuitive UI, scalability and member in the MACH Alliance, Akeneo is the perfect PIM for growing businesses.

WHY AKENEO?

Say hello to more efficient data management: How many product data sources do you have? Akeneo removes the chaos of keeping track with an intuitive central hub for storing every piece of product information you own. Yes every piece. That includes technical specifications, usage data and media files. Having a single source of truth for all your product information is great news for your product data quality and accuracy and your team’s efficiency.

Grow digital sales: Akeneo PIM provides the scalable infrastructure you need to cost-effectively expand your product assortments, reach more markets, take advantage of new sales channels and deliver incredible product experiences wherever your customers shop. 

Make omnichannel a reality: Looking for a PIM to support your omnichannel initiatives? Akeneo is a solid bet. Use it to unify consistent, accurate and high-quality product experiences in your customers’ favourite channels. From this base, it’s possible to drive better customer experiences, increase sales, reduce time-to-market, accelerate global expansion, and uplift team productivity.  

Build customer trust: Today’s consumers demand more of retailers and brands. Meet their expectations by making sure they only see high quality, accurate product data, wherever they’re seeing it. A bonus is the reduced returns you’ll enjoy – up to 40% – thanks to your complete, correct product information.  

Speed up your time-to-market: Omnichannel retailers have to deliver to more channels, languages and regions than ever before. And more rapidly, too. Akeno PIM can help you boost efficiency and productivity to get products to the right channels, in your desired format, faster.

Your PIM is a core component in your enterprise – and it is essential that you can trust it to be high-performing, user friendly and scalable. Picking Akeneo provides that best-of-breed, focused, innovative system that enables reliable time-to-market and the ability to expand your product offering and business.
