How to migrate product data from existing PIM system?
The process of migrating product data from one PIM system to another can be complex, and the specifics will depend on different PIM software involved. Each PIM might have its own specific steps to be followed. However, there are some general steps you can follow:
- Analyse your existing data: Before starting the migration process, you need to analyse your existing data to ensure it is complete, accurate, and consistent. This includes identifying any duplicate data, incomplete fields, or missing information.
- Map your data: You need to map your data fields between your existing PIM tool and the new PIM tool. This will help you identify any differences in the data structure and field naming conventions that may require adjustments.
- Export your data: Once you have mapped your data, you need to export it from your existing PIM solution. This typically involves exporting data files in a CSV or XML format, which can then be imported into the new PIM solution.
- Import your data: Once you have exported your data files, you need to import them into your new PIM software. This involves mapping the fields in your exported data files to the fields in your new PIM software.
- Test your data: After importing your data, you need to test it thoroughly to ensure it has been migrated correctly. This includes checking the data for completeness, accuracy, and consistency.
- Go live: Once you have tested your data, you can go live with your new PIM software.

Do I need an ERP or a PIM?
It depends on your specific needs and goals. An ERP system is designed to manage many aspects of your business, such as finances, human resources, and inventory management. While it may have some basic PIM capabilities, it may not be able to provide the level of product data management and syndication that a dedicated PIM can offer.
On the other hand, a PIM tool is designed specifically to manage and optimize product data, providing features like product enrichment, digital asset management, and multi-channel syndication. If you're a retailer or brand that needs to manage a large volume of complex product data and sell across multiple channels, a dedicated PIM may be the better choice for you.
Is BetterCommerce PIM a PXM as well?
Yes! BetterCommerce comes with an in-built PXM so you can save the hassle of integrating one from a third-party vendor.
Which type of data is stored in PIM?’
PIM tools are designed to store and manage product-related data, including product descriptions, attributes, SKUs, pricing, inventory, print catalogs and other relevant product information like the digital assets for example images, and technical specifications.

PIM and CMS are two distinct software solutions that help businesses manage their digital content.
PIM is primarily focused on managing product information, such as descriptions, SKUs, pricing, and other relevant details, and allows businesses to centralize, enrich and distribute their product data across various sales channels.
On the other hand, CMS is focused on managing website content, such as pages, posts, images, and multimedia assets, and allows businesses to create, edit, and publish content without needing technical skills.
Digital Asset Management (DAM) can be common between PIM and CMS.
What is PIM (Product Information Management)?
PIM, or Product Information Management, is a system that helps businesses efficiently collect, store, manage, and distribute their product information. It serves as a single source of truth for all product-related data, including specifications, descriptions, images, videos, pricing, and more. PIM allows businesses to streamline workflow management and distribute product information across various channels, such as e-commerce websites, marketplaces, and print catalogs.
By implementing a PIM system, businesses can ensure the accuracy, consistency, and completeness of their product information, leading to improved customer experiences, increased operational efficiency, and enhanced sales performance.

Product Data Sheets are commonly used by manufacturers, suppliers, and retailers to provide comprehensive information about their products to customers, partners, and regulatory authorities.
PIM vs PLM?
PIM (Product Information Management) and PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) serve different purposes.
PIM focuses on managing and optimizing product information, ensuring accurate and consistent data across various channels. It primarily deals with organizing, enriching, and distributing product data.
PLM, on the other hand, manages the entire lifecycle of a product, from its conception to design, development, production, and maintenance. PLM encompasses broader aspects such as engineering, collaboration, version control, and regulatory compliance.

• Streamlining product enrichment: PIM streamlines the process of enriching product data by allowing businesses to easily add and update information, attributes, images, and other content.

Read here why PIM is needed for scaling businesses.
Does PIM have Workflow Management?
Yes, PIM often includes workflow management capabilities. Workflow management allows businesses to define and automate processes related to product data management. It helps streamline the approval, validation, and publishing of product information by defining roles, responsibilities, and approval chains. It also ensures that the right stakeholders are involved at each stage of the product data management process.
How is product feed management different from product information management?
Product Feed Management is primarily concerned with optimizing and distributing product data feeds across external channels such as marketplaces and advertising platforms. It focuses on formatting and structuring data to meet channel-specific requirements, ensuring accuracy and completeness for maximum visibility and sales.
Product Information Management (PIM) encompasses a broader scope, centralizing and managing all aspects of product information within an organization. It ensures data accuracy, consistency, and completeness across multiple channels and touchpoints, providing a seamless customer experience.
PIM is focused on internal data management and optimization to enhance efficiency and deliver consistent, high-quality product information.
While both product feed management and PIM are essential for effective product management strategies, effective data modeling also complements it.
- Flexible data modeling in PIM allows businesses to adapt to changing product information needs.
- It enables customization and scalability, accommodating unique attributes and processes.
- Flexible data modeling facilitates seamless integration with existing systems and data sources.
- It future-proofs PIM strategies, ensuring relevance and effectiveness in the long run
