What is PIM?

what-is-pim-1

A Product Information Management System (PIM) stores all of a company’s product data, and then distributes it anywhere it’s needed.

Say you’re a t-shirt manufacturer or retailer. Each product you stock might have a material type, size range, colour, price, and associated media such as images and videos.

Now multiply that by thousands of items. That’s a lot of data to keep track of!

This data might be scattered in spreadsheets, PDF files, word documents and emails. There could even be duplicates of each file, where nobody knows which one is the most recent.
