Why do I need a PIM?

  • We have thousands of SKU codes and associated images to manage
  • We manage product data and images from multiple suppliers
  • We have different versions of images for print, web and other channels
  • We need to distribute our product data and images to multiple channels, including mobile, print and email, but have no centralized control
    • Product data is stored in Excel or Word
    • Images are stored on multiple hard drives in various regional offices and/or held by suppliers
    • Images are not stored in suitable formats and dimensions for your marketing channels
    • We have had staff working from home during the pandemic and making our data available to them has been very difficult
  • To produce our catalogues, data is manually copied and pasted into Adobe InDesign by our artworkers

What a PIM delivers:

“One source of truth, always accurate and up-to-date across all marketing channels”

  • Centralized control of product data and SKUs Management of complex product relationships
  • Centralized control of images, so print format images are accessible for your artworkers and custom format(s) for web and mobile by other departments
  • Synchronization of product data and images between your ecommerce web site and other marketing channels, as well as Adobe InDesign
  • No more copying and pasting. The data is kept in sync, ensuring consistent pricing and content

Renaissance PIM Features at a glance

We had been looking at centralizing our creative and production processes for some while, and ec2i have been the perfect partner for us on this journey with their PIM solution. From a thorough project scoping phase, extensive testing and development process, right through to full role out of asset management and catalogue production, ec2i have provided excellent support throughout. Their training was always engaging and informative, enabling a fast and smooth integration of the wider team to new processes. We are seeing the real benefits of having “one version of the truth” across all of our production streams and the speed at which updates can be made is a great asset. I could not recommend ec2i highly enough if you need a hardworking, conscientious, and generally lovely group of people to partner with.

We have worked with ec2i for over 10 years and their Renaissance PIM has, over time, helped us to streamline our production processes and provided us with a centralized location for all of our product data. By feeding a spreadsheet into their PIM, we’re able to change prices automatically across multiple publications, saving us time, mitigating error and allowing us to remain reactive. As always the support and service from ec2i is second to none, they are a valued supplier.

David Falzon
Head of Production, Charles Tyrwhitt

When we reviewed our PIM requirements a year ago, ec2i’s bespoke solution just ticked all the boxes.  Our team were familiar with catalogue software but now we have a much simpler to use product that’s quicker, more versatile and, massively important, accurate.  We use it across our main 1200-page catalogue, monthly mailers, POS and posters.  The functionality is so easy to use: just drag and drop images and text onto the page. And pricing updates simultaneously across all channels.  I thoroughly recommend Matt Jones, their PIM specialist.  Not only is he technically good but calm, knowledgeable and clear in his instruction. And support is there all the time, not just for the onboarding process.  Put simply: the product works.  We’re delighted.  I can’t recommend enough.
