One of the biggest challenges to online catalogers is efficiently managing hundreds – if not thousands – of product records. How do you do that efficiently with a lot of products? By using a Product Information Management Systems (PIMS). Two of today’s leading PIMS are Stibo Systems and Hybris.
Stibo Systems provides a robust PIM in their STEP product. This enterprise solution centralizes product information and feeds consistent, accurate, and up-to-date information to multiple distribution channels including enterprise content management systems for display on websites. It is capable of managing product and consumer data to location as well as supplier data. Stibo Systems also utilizes various products such as Multi Domain Master Data Management, Product and Customer Data Management, as well as Tagglo Retail Syndication.
Hybris, on the other hand, provides a slightly different but still robust solution. This enterprise solution centralizes product information and feeds consistent, accurate, and up-to-date information to multiple distribution channels including enterprise content management systems for display on B2C and B2B websites and applications. One of the key features of Hybris is that it can quickly get complex new bundle offerings online without IT intervention. Hybris also is capable of consolidating product data, controlling all channels from one place, utilizing quick, coordinated content creation and approval processes. It allows for consistent appearance across all channels, and creates a compelling, engaging experience for their customers.
Both PIM platforms offer many great features that are sure to get the job done quickly and effectively. Consolidating all product data to one location allows a company to have a single, centralized knowledge of their product master data resulting in improved operational efficiencies and business performance.
