PIM software implementation requires some groundwork. Ntara’s PIM consulting services help guide you through that process. To begin, there are several questions to answer.
- What are your biggest product pain points?
- What are you not doing with PIM that you wish you could?
- How will PIM fit into your current tech stack?
- Who’s on point to standardize and complete your existing data?
- What taxonomy will you use internally?
- How will internal taxonomy translate to channel taxonomies?
- Who will govern existing and future product data?
The value of PIM consulting
When businesses need PIM, they often want to jump right in. Implement faster. See value sooner. We get it—the sooner, the better. But this approach to PIM typically fails.
Successful PIM implementation requires deep analysis and thoughtful strategy. It’s critical to get this right upfront or you risk wasting time and resources on your implementation.
If you skip the pre-work, your data may not flow as intended. Adoption may be low if it’s easier to complete tasks the old way. You may not be able to scale your strategy as you launch new products. Your leadership team could pull funding because your project isn’t adding value.
Most businesses don’t have the internal resources needed to prepare for PIM. That’s where PIM consulting comes in. Ntara guides you through the necessary steps to prepare for a successful PIM implementation. That way, your investment in PIM isn’t wasted. And your leadership team gets ROI instead of buyer’s remorse.
What is PIM consulting?
PIM consulting is a guided approach to preparing your organization for a PIM software implementation. During PIM consulting engagements, we work with you to lay the groundwork.
Through collaborative sessions, we identify your PIM requirements and your current product processes. We have a proven framework for evaluating and selecting the PIM software that’s best for you. We audit your product data and establish a data-cleansing strategy. And we guide you in optimizing your product process and mapping a scalable data model.
After a PIM consulting engagement, you have a roadmap for a successful PIM implementation. And once you launch your MVP, we can work with you to add features – and additional business value.
