Why you need a PIM?
There are many reasons why you need a Product Information Management (PIM) system. One of the most common reasons is you are spending too much time, money, and human resources managing your product catalog on your own.
A PIM is designed to save you time and help improve your efficiency. Imagine a scenario (which is a very common one) where you have multiple stores and store locations. Some stores sell different products, but they all sell some of the same products. Let's say you want to introduce a new product into all your stores. How would you do that? Without a PIM you would have to update every single store, add the same product detail information multiple times. How many hours would that take? Now imagine that same scenario with a PIM in place, where you have a centralized database allowing you to make one update and push it out to all your stores.
Not convinced? Let's do the math. You have 5 locations to update with 10 products to update every week. Let's say it takes 60 minutes to put together the product information, find a good image, add the product to the store, etc.
5 Locations x 10 Products a week x 60 minutes = 50 hours a week!
50 HOURS A WEEK! That's more than a full time position just for doing data entry. This is the true power of a PIM. It frees up those resources to be better utilized for support, training, sales, or marketing--roles that help increase the overall bottom line and help improve customer loyalty and satisfaction.
