Frequent Questions

What is PIM or Product Information Management?

Product Information Management is the process of taking (typically large or complex) sets of product data and organising them in some software so you can make it easier to access. It used to be only very large companies that did this, however, in the last decade, many affordable software solutions have entered the market that makes it accessible to smaller businesses. Once you’ve organised your data, you can integrate it with other systems like eCommerce, Inventory Management & ERP solutions.

How much product data can PIM software hold?

It depends on the software you’re using. We like Pimcore which has been tested with millions of records. Large retailers often go up to 100,000s of records but really there are solutions that can scale as far as you would ever need it to practically go.

What else can you do with a product data management system?

The main goal would of course be to manage your product data. However, many software solutions now have become adept at other related tasks like Digital Asset Management, Product Experience Management, Master Data Management and Inventory Management. A platform that is particularly good for enriching product experiences is Pimcore which we've been using successfully for many years.

Why aren’t there more product information management agencies?

Good question! We’ve been a PIM Agency in Manchester for quite some time. It’s always been the backbone of any eCommerce development work we’ve done. If you have a lot of products to manage, it would be well worth speaking to someone who specialises in this area. If you’re looking for a PIM Agency in the UK, there are a few great candidates and we would obviously be very happy to chat.
