In today's retail landscape, providing a seamless customer experience across all channels is paramount. That's where Product Information Management (PIM) comes into play, offering a centralised solution for retailers to manage the massive amounts of data that make a successful omnichannel strategy hum.

The essential role of PIM in driving omnichannel success

  • Consistency is King: A PIM system ensures accurate, consistent product information is provided through your website, social media, brick-and-mortar stores, and any other customer touchpoints. This consistency builds trust and eliminates frustration.
  • Empowered customers, increased sales: Rich, detailed product descriptions, high-quality images, and even videos stored in your PIM enable informed decision-making. When customers find what they need quickly, conversions increase.
  • Accelerated time to market: PIMs streamline workflows, from product creation to launch. This agility helps you capitalise on trends and respond faster to market demands.
  • Uncompromising data quality: Automated validation and customisable rules in a PIM guarantee the high-quality product information that boosts your brand's reputation and drives customer satisfaction.

Tangible outcomes of PIM in retail

  • Boosted customer satisfaction: A consistent, informative experience across channels increases customer satisfaction and loyalty.
  • Enhanced operational efficiency: With central data storage and streamlined workflows, PIM frees up your teams to focus on strategic initiatives.
  • Competitive advantage: PIMs help you outpace the competition by getting new products to market faster and offering a superior shopping experience.

Why Now?

  • A recent Gartner study found that organisations with a PIM solution experience a 22% increase in time-to-market for new products.
  • Research indicates shoppers are 70% more likely to convert when they can find detailed product information.
