In the last couple of years, the realm of PIM has undergone a transformation of sorts. Today, the realization has set in that manufacturers can no longer rely on basic product specifications, features, and functions to deliver a great customer experience. They have to do a lot more to enable the unique experiences for customers that will make their digital strategy a success. Manufacturers and distributors alike are constantly driving efforts to unearth value from an ever-increasing volume of information and build an accurate and synchronized view of product information.

In such an environment, PIM solutions abound. Each has its own values and niche to cater to.  EnterWorks is one such PIM solution that aggregates and manages product content, allowing you to build a data model that meets the specific needs of your business. This post is about the value of the EnterWorks PIM solution and where it’s making an impact.

What EnterWorks brings to the table

Given how spread out product data is, across multiple business systems, distributors, and retailers, as well as supply chain networks, EnterWorks offers a comprehensive PIM solution that enables organizations to collect, cleanse, synchronize, and present accurate and relevant product data.
