When selling products across multiple channels, managing product data can be a challenging task.

Often, product information ends up dispersed across different computer systems and files, making it difficult to locate data and keep catalogs updated in an agile manner. This can lead to inconsistencies, errors, and inefficiencies.

A centralized system, such as a Product Information Management (PIM) platform allows you to store all your product data in one place, making it easier to manage and distribute across multiple channels.

Benefits of centralized information systems

Imagine all your resources being available in a single centralized repository, with all files kept updated with the latest versions of all product data, accessible by everyone: Marketing, Sales, Design, and Manufacturing. Each department has its own permissions to edit, manage, and export product information, ensuring no duplication of files.

By storing your product information in a centralized system, you gain ultimate control over your data, allowing your teams to work with organized and error-free workflows.

Other advantages of a centralized system include:

  • Clearly defined workflows
  • Lower costs - one single software to manage all your processes replaces multiple expensive fees.
  • Activity histories, access and editing controls, and centralized backups
  • Update data simultaneously across multiple channels
  • Error and inconsistency detections and management
  • Improved brand image and reputation
  • Consistent and accurate data output

Challenges of centralizing your data

Problems can start to arise during the implementation process of a centralized data system.

For example, if your company works with dozens of software systems with differing functions, some departments may not be familiar with all software types. Alternatively, some software may be only accessible from a central computer, and not remotely for workers or partners that are based internationally. As your business scales, the amount of product data handled by your marketing departments increases and complexities can multiply.

The most effective tool to centralize and optimize your product data is a PIM.

A PIM provides two key benefits:

  • Gathers all your product data in a centralized database that acts as a single source of truth for the entire company
  • Enables you to ensure your information is accurate and up to date across all channels, marketplaces, and catalogs
