Product information management with akeneo

In a product information management system (PIM), you get a tool that helps you centralise and manage all relevant information about your products.

akeneo is the perfect tool because it aims at simplicity and user friendliness. This is how it works

  • Collect: With akeneo, your different product data distributed in different locations can be flexibly and easily collected and integrated.
  • Optimise: In akeneo, you can structure product data, add further information to it as well as translate it. Simple rules allow you to monitor content quality. This allows you to decide that a product can only pass to an output channel if data quality is adequate and no information is missing.
  • Distribute: Once finished, you can publish product data via various channels: online stores, websites, catalogues, mobile applications and shops. You can be sure that product data is uniform and correct.
