Maintain product data centrally and manage it individually
The PIM module allows you to maintain and manage all eCommerce relevant product master data. With just a few clicks you can prepare, import or create image and product data for other channels.
Manage your product data in a reliable manner and in one central location. Manage product and image data specifically for particular channels, create product master data or import data from databases, ERP systems or separate PIM solutions. You can also import data directly at any stage in the form of CSV or XML files.
Using the PIM module in the eF|CommerceEngine you can issue product information and price lists for different sales channels, various customer groups and different countries – the module is multilingual and can handle different currencies.

Maintaining and managing promotional product data
Maintain and manage promotional product data depending on the relevant target channel. So, for instance, you could create a product description which is optimised for Amazon and independent from the eShop description.
Product catalogue management
Define and manage as many product catalogues as you like with any number of structural levels. You can opt to allocate product master records to a particular category or as many categories as you like within a catalogue. In addition, the PIM module offers you automatic catalogue inheritance, category management and product characteristics management with characteristic sets and characteristic mapping.
Manage all the image data for a product within the product master data. The image data and pictures are stored in a central image management system and linked with the relevant product. You can manage different pictures at a display option level for each sales channel.
Supply as many images as you like or export them for other purposes.
Product relationship management
Manage the relationship between products centrally, for instance an accessory relationship: what belongs to what product, what goes with it, what is needed? These relationships can be freely defined and can be used as desired for each product.
Price list administration
Define as many price lists as you like on a gross or net basis. All price lists can handle multiple currencies. Store sliding scale prices and discount scales with automatic versioning for all price and discount modifications. Allocate price lists to particular groups of customers or sales channels. Create special price lists for purchasing conditions (for using procurement management) and an imputed purchase price. In addition you can use collective changes for all prices, automatic price calculation and promotional price lists.
Automatic product data checking/authorisation
Product authorisation process: store test parameters in the system for automatic product authorisation. The validation criteria can be stored at a category level. The eF|CommerceEngine checks the mandatory features before transmission and reports any checks which fail.
