We all know what it’s like to run around for information. Call your cable company to ask about your bill and you get, "Call here! Call there! Call the other place!” The information could be anywhere, it takes a lot of time and effort to retrieve it all, and at the end you can only hope everything is right.
Does it feel like business management systems sometimes deliver the same experience? Pricing and costing are on a spreadsheet, product descriptions are in a printed catalog, product images are on a website, and cross-sell and up-sell information only exist in someone’s head. "Check here! Check there! Check the other place!”
Product Information Management systems are the solution to fragmented and fractured product information that’s all too often spread throughout all corners of an organization.
Product Information Management systems are the solution to fragmented and fractured product information that’s all too often spread throughout all corners of an organization. By centralizing vital product information in one electronic location, a PIM can provide staff and customers alike with real-time, accurate, complete pictures of what’s for sale.
Integrated Product Information Management systems go a step further. An integrated PIM automatically makes the centralized product information available to all the systems and people who need it. Systems like ecommerce websites, web services, web portals, electronic product catalogs, and even trading partners’ ERPs can automatically retrieve complete product information at all times.
Keeping the Product Information Management System up to date means automatically keeping every person and system up to date. No calling here. No checking there. Just a complete, accurate, real-time picture of what’s for sale, automatically shared with everyone and available at any time.
