When considering implementing a product information management (PIM) system, it’s important to evaluate and understand the needs of your company and its departments. Where you want to sell, where your product information is located, and what your product launch rate is must all be considered.

A PIM is an effective and efficient solution for a wide range of businesses, including those with more complex structures, large amounts of SKUs, different information workflows, and multiple sales channels.

Regardless of your individual use case, it’s vital to define from the start how a PIM will work for you and implement the tool to suit these needs. Some companies struggle to choose a PIM and implement it due to the many options available, but it’s far simpler than you expect.

Potential challenges when implementing a PIM

Several obstacles may arise when implementing a PIM system, most commonly related to a company's current information infrastructure.

Errors that you might face:

  • Existing information is segmented across different departments
  • Involvement of many parts and departments as channels grow. To tackle this, have an individual with a global vision of the product catalog.
  • With multiple users involved, errors or content inconsistencies may exist within existing product data. PIM can detect these errors and log different profile activities.

What do you need to do before implementing a PIM?

In order to prepare to implement a PIM in your company, you must first:

  • Locate your product content (ERP, image catalogs, etc.)
  • Determine information output sources (websites, marketplaces, printed catalogs etc) and technologies related to these
  • Ensure all personnel that will interact with the PIM have undergone training and are aware of all features and advantages
