For many businesses, keeping their inventory fully updated is crucial. However, traditional methods of extracting valuable information from an inventory can be tedious, resource-consuming, and frustrating for marketing teams. Maintaining an accurate product catalog on Shopify can be difficult, particularly when dealing with a large number of SKUs.Product information management (PIM) centralizes your product database, allowing companies to manage data from one single source of truth. It’s an essential tool for managing a large inventory, streamlining processes, and syndicating data across multiple channels.
Benefits of PIM / Shopify Integration
When integrated with Shopify, a PIM system can optimize online stores, save time and increase sales. PIM can control, manage, analyze, and update all the data points in your product catalog, including but not limited to:
- GTIN numbers
- Images and videos
- Height and weight specifications
- Geographic or industry-specific regulatory requirements
By utilizing a PIM to manage your product data for you, you can integrate your data across all channels and platforms to generate a consistent and uniform brand message that is easily identifiable by your customers.
