How to start implementing the PIM project?Go to FAQ Contents
Here, you’ll find four tips for your PIM software development:
Management of Expectations and Change: Involve all parties
Explain why you choose to implement a PIM system: What are your functional needs and expectations? From the beginning, You should include all departments responsible for data management and processing. PIM is more than simply software and technology. Each department will utilize the system in a somewhat different manner since they need various kinds of data. You will get the most out of your program if you consider all of the requirements from the beginning.
You may improve system acceptability by using organized change management. Early on, get everyone engaged, including all levels of management. Include them in the process of transformation. Staff dedication and management support will guarantee that the system is functional and that data quality is improved.
Processes and duties will be affected by the implementation of a PIM system. During the project, conflicts between the different stakeholders involved are unavoidable. A project manager with sufficient decision-making authority and a management sponsor may assist in their resolution.
Consider the following factors while choosing software: Be realistic!
PIM providers offer a wide range of features and capabilities, making it difficult to choose one.
Based on real-world use scenarios, determine which criteria your system must satisfy. Discuss where and how data should be handled and processed with all parties involved.
Create a list of necessary features based on particular use cases to assess a solution. This Requirement Specification will assist you in compiling your own shortlist of four to six competent tools from a large number of software packages present on the market. Alternatives, such as open-source solutions may also be worth investigating.
A well-defined set of selection criteria will save you from getting distracted by things that your business does not need.
A proof of concept of the two finalists should be the last stage in the software assessment process. Even if it requires more work, a wrong choice would be far more costly!
Meanwhile, don’t forget to haggle with software suppliers about pricing. There will be no incentives to lower the price if you start too early. You won’t be able to bargain if you start too late and just one opponent is remaining. Remember that, apart from licensing payments, there are other significant expenses to consider, such as system integration, maintenance, support, and system optimization.
It may take many months to implement a PIM system. Subdividing the project into manageable stages may be beneficial: you will be more flexible, respond to changes more quickly, and achieve quicker results.
It’s just as essential to choose the appropriate implementation partner: Is the integrator knowledgeable about PIM? Is he well-versed in the system? Is there a business relationship between him and the software provider? Save time and money by making use of a competent implementation partner’s expertise!
Structure, data management, and processes
You must change product information procedures to implement a PIM system. In connection to product information, management, quality, business processes, and risk management will need to be reevaluated. Models of stewardship have been demonstrated to be effective: To begin, determine which departments or workers are in charge of which product data. Then, for the business processes in issue, create explicit norms and standards. The flow of product data throughout the business will become more transparent and error-free.
Furthermore, before building a PIM system, your company must specify the data structure. It must be media-independent and satisfy the criteria of all output channels. The system’s limitations and the data generation and maintenance procedures should all be considered. You should also identify which system has control over which data and at what point in this process. While ERP systems may be the most incredible fit for master data, a MAM tool may be the best fit for pictures. PIM aims to provide a single common source of data that combines all of this data for all sales channels.
Consider the whole picture! Demands on product data processes vary as your retail company grows and your product variety develops. In the future, one of the main drivers for Enterprise PIM will be an assortment. To manage the growing quantity of goods, you’ll need a streamlined and consistent procedure.
