What is a PIM system?

The B2B PIM (Product Information Management) system enables manufacturers, producers, wholesalers to create and manage product data. The system also ensures that this data can be distributed quickly and easily to targeted third parties such as web shops, online and print publications, re-seller, etcetera. The result is power over the published content, feeding the channels and unburdening the sales and marketing partners. More and more manufacturers want to take that responsibility themselves and thus also have control over their own product data. After all, manufacturers have an interest in correct product data. And the resellers with multi-brand propositions all the more so. It explains the demand for Business to Business PIM systems.

The term PIM is an acronym of Product Information Management. In essence, a PIM system is therefore software which exists in all kinds of different forms.
