COMMERCE PRODUCT MANAGEMENT (PIM)

COMMERCE PRODUCT MANAGEMENT (PIM)

Efficient, intuitive product management gives you the full control of product data

Product Management is a growth requirement

Product information management is a crucial part of any ecommerce business. If you're looking for something a bit more sophisticated as you grow, an Excel spreadsheet can do the trick. As you scale, you'll need a product information management system that collects, manages, enriches, and distributes product information across your ecommerce store and social sales channels.

Product information is synced across your technology stack via a PIM that functions as a single hub for product content management, which connects it with your ecommerce platform, ERP, OMS, and other third-party integrations. With this approach, you are always working off the same, fully updated product information when expanding into new sales channels.

A Growing Need to Use a PIM

Scaling your eCommerce business can be difficult, but everyone starting out wants to take on this challenge. When you scale, keep an eye out for product information that might be inaccurate, out of date, or distributed across different locations.

As you scale your business, you must monitor for errors in your data. It's particularly challenging to clean up data when it starts to degrade. As time passes, things like item codes, catalogue references, SKUs, pictures, and videos, are increasingly difficult to manage.

It's hard to keep data quality when you're scaling a business, because there are many obstacles. When you have large, complex product catalogues, it's particularly challenging to add and edit volumes of products across multiple channels, you're particularly at risk for discrepancies.

Once other factors are included (for example, managing multiple price lists, geographic locations, languages, currencies, promotions, and so on), the process becomes more difficult.

To effectively communicate the value of your products to your customers, your eCommerce product information has to be accurate and consistent across channels, including detailed descriptions and high quality images.

As you scale, you’ll have more data to manage — and that means the Excel spreadsheet that worked in your early days will no longer be sufficient. When you have every back-office system in sync, they’ll be able to manage product details, run targeted marketing campaigns, and expand to new sales channels quickly. m

Key Question: PIM within ERP or Platform

A retailer's ERP system carries out all the central management of the company and is connected to all the other services, processes and software in the company, including the PIM. That's why most eCommerce platforms are fed product data from the ERP.

However, this configuration does not suite every retailer - and some prefer to use their Platform as master-of-data, where products are both created and enriched. The Remarkable Commerce platform allows for any system design.
