BigCommerce to Akeneo Catalog Migration Tool

Overview

The BigCommerce to Akeneo Catalog Migration Tool helps BigCommerce store owners transfer all their product data into Akeneo PIM so they can improve and scale eCommerce product data management efforts. Most store owners manage product data directly in BigCommerce but that is typically a manual, time consuming, multi-step, and disconnected process that involves multiple spreadsheets and image repositories. Hence, managing product data in a single PIM system is the way to go. It offers a lot of flexibility and productivity features that lets the store owner grow product and attribute counts without having to hire more people. For many reasons, Akeneo is the ideal PIM solution and companion for BigCommerce store owners that want to scale their online business.

Before store owners can use Akeneo PIM, they must migrate their entire product catalog accurately into the PIM. This involves transferring all BigCommerce product data structures (attributes, categories, lists of values, etc), configuring additional product data structures in PIM (families, variant families, association types, channels, locale, etc.), and transferring product and variant level data, product options, images, and videos. This migration involves BigCommerce data and digital asset extraction, manual transformation, and multi-step loading into the Akeneo PIM system. Multiple rounds of migration and configuration testing are typical in such projects in order to validate data and ensure successful outcomes. Store owners should be intimately familiar with both tool features, and expect to spend a fair amount of time doing this migration, particularly in case of large catalogs. In some cases, data migrations can stall projects indefinitely and affect the launch of your digital growth initiatives.

With StrikeTru’s BigCommerce to Akeneo Catalog Migration Tool, store owners can automate this complex migration with a few simple clicks! This tool, the only such tool in the market today, takes the cost and complexity out of the product data migration process by automating it end to end.
