The use of a PIM system is particularly useful for companies that offer a variety of products and product variants in their product range and sell them on various (international) channels, such as online marketplaces, web shops, social media, print, etc. The size of a company is not decisive.
With the help of a PIM system, all product data is managed at a central location and can be made available directly from there to various output channels. Any changes to the data are synchronized in real time. This seamless integration ensures that all information is always up to date and offers customers a consistent buying experience across all channels.
A PIM system manages all data and information needed to successfully market your products on various channels.
In the case of Bikes this data includes, for example:
Some PIM systems, such as VeloPIM, have integrated DAM (Digital Asset Management) functions to manage media assets, such as photos, graphics, videos, and PDF files.
VeloPIM is a software-as-a-service solution based on the latest and proven web technologies. The security of your data is paramount, which is why VeloPIM is hosted exclusively on German, GDPR-compliant cloud servers. Each of our customers receives a dedicated server instance that is provided exclusively for them and is not shared with other customers.
If required, we can of course also offer VeloPIM as an on-premise solution.
VeloPIM is completely designed for model-variant relationships. This means that only one main model of a product with the generally valid specifications must be created at a time. When variants are created, the core data of the main model, such as brand and description, are automatically passed on to the variants. In the variants, only the variant differences, such as color and frame size, are maintained and, if necessary, the attributes from the inherited values are overwritten.
VeloPIM has a powerful ExportCenter and an API gateway (“middleware”). The former provides all possible data exports according to individual wishes and parameters. Exports can be created automatically, on a time-controlled basis, or manually. Created exports receive a permalink, which does not change during the lifetime of the respective export, but always keeps the data available in its latest version.
Using the second module, our API gateway, all channels (web shop, apps, print, etc.) and third-party providers (Veloconnect, BikeCenter, Bidex, ChannelPilot, etc.) can be connected to VeloPIM and provided with up-to-date data.
The license costs for VeloPIM are as follows:
The amount of the respective costs depends on the number of SKUs* managed in VeloPIM, booked additional modules and the interfaces to be connected.
We would be happy to discuss your requirements with you and make an individual offer.
