What is product information management (PIM)?
Product information management is the practice of creating and distributing accurate, compelling product stories across all of your digital channels. Companies typically sell in a variety of locations: their own websites; retail websites/marketplaces, such as Amazon, Walmart, and Wayfair; and a variety of other brick and mortar distributors and stores. Effective product information management helps your team capture, optimize, and store information—all in one place—and distribute it to multiple destinations.
How is PIM consulting valuable to my business?
You’ve been managing product data with disparate systems for quite some time, and your series of spreadsheets and homegrown databases have worked up to this point. But over time, this approach becomes unwieldy, especially as your external channels multiply. PIM is a scalable infrastructure that can save your organization time, reduce errors in data, and improve your overall customer experience. This can provide you with direct ROI by getting products to market faster, reducing returns, and freeing up critical staff to do higher-value work.

What you get

Our consulting methods quantify cost and time savings, predicting the ROI of PIM for your organization and the features you should prioritize in deployment.
Guidance on data cleansing
The quality of your data is the greatest single risk to your PIM project.

We’ll score your data with an industry leading rubric and provide specific recommendations for what needs to be addressed.
