Millions of data

First of all, let’s focus on product information management software. It gives you an opportunity to get all your product information, sales, and marketing centralized and harmonized. It could be connected to third-party software like ERP, CRM or BI. Let’s go deeper into the main features. A key to PIM is a web-based data modeling engine. More than 40 data types handle millions of products. What’s more- you can work more effectively when creating an international context with a multi-language administration interface (it provides 20 different languages).

Digital transformation

What about unstructured data like media assets? Pimcore DAM software is much more than just an application- it is really digital transformation with high performance and scalability. It provides a central repository for any type of digital asset and its meta-data. All you need to do is just manage, which is easy and consistent. For your marketing team, there is Pimcore Asset Portal (commercial extension), which is an image library.

Content Management System

Pimcore’s agile content management system is a platform that integrates content with specified processes. It’s the most efficient CMS and marketing platform you’ve ever seen. Managing, updating or publishing personalized web content now is much easier. Your business is able to create advanced solutions using only one environment for many endpoints (e.g.: web services, mobile apps, social media).

Less time = more time

Pimcore’s e-Commerce solution is providing all functionalities you will need in your e-Commerce. It shortens the time of product launch and ensures an astonishing ROI. You can increase real-time sales on many channels in B2B and B2C environments. If you face a challenge that none of the management systems solve, it’s the best way to move forward and have more time to take care of all your business.

Technology

Pimcore has been created to meet the expectations of even the most demanding programmers. It relies on leading and modern technologies such as PHP/Symfony, MySQL, Elastic Search, Mongo DB, and Varnish. You can create an advanced web app or just website in a short time. Pimcore is accessed and operated by the user directly in any web browser like Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Internet Explorer and Safari. It is compatible with any operating system, such as Windows, macOS or Linux. The user-friendly interface is context-sensitive and allows working with data intuitively.

It is used by more than 82,000 companies in 56 countries (e.g.: Audi, T-Mobile, Pepsi, IKEA). One of the largest domestic energy companies, and one of the leading electricity suppliers in Europe- Energa is one of them. Let’s see some challenges and numbers.
