Extensive and correct product information is becoming ever more important. Customers have a need for complete and detailed information. To manage your information truly efficiently, a PIM system is essential. Guidance explains why.
Managing a product range involves work. Different information, images and associated documents belong to each item. It is important to keep the information in a central place. And this is where a PIM system comes in. In a PIM (Product Information Management) system, you can structurally save all product information.
The PIM software from Guidance, Catalogger PIM, is specially designed for wholesalers and manufacturers who want to manage their range in a structured way, and automatically publish this information on the website and in the catalog, as well as provide (classification) information to third parties.
Technical data, images, technical drawings, schematics, logos, icons, product descriptions, downloadable documents, marketing descriptions and ambient images (just to name a few) can all be entered and managed in PIM. All possibilities and features of Catalogger PIM can be read on the PIM product management options overview page.
Catalogger PIM offers a number of useful features for importing data that make things even easier for you. You can find all possibilities on our import options overview page.
In Catalogger PIM, it is also possible to classify according to the ETIM standard. The ETIM classification file with predefined structure and associated properties can be read into Catalogger PIM.
In PIM, all product information can be stored and managed in multiple languages, even in non-Western European languages such as Russian and Chinese. The possibilities are described in detail on the international publishing overview page.
You can set up one or more range structures in the PIM system. The items can be structured as you desire.
Once all information is in PIM, it becomes easy to find it. The structure already makes it easy to find the desired product, but PIM also offers extensive search (and replace) functionality. Catalogger PIM also offers a query option, which allows you to use predefined search queries.
Multiple people can work in Catalogger PIM simultaneously. This includes the possibility to indicate what parts of the range a user or user group can or cannot see.
From the PIM system, you can easily publish data to web and paper. Think of the automated publishing of fully formatted product catalogs, price lists, datasheets (see Catalogger PRINT), and your website/online store range. Catalogger even does this fully automated, without manual layout! You can read everything about publishing from PIM in our blog article ‘Using the PIM system for e-commerce purposes’.
A PIM system is an indispensable component for the structural and efficient storage and use of product data. Without a PIM, it costs much more time and effort to find, track, copy, export and publish information, with more risk of errors to boot. Especially if the range keeps growing and the customer demand for extensive and comprehensive information continues to increase.
