If you’re a typical PIM customer, you must be selling hundred or thousands of products via one or more channels. Each of your products likely has a variety of digital assets – images (silos, environmentals, lifestyle, etc), videos, product sheets (warranty, assembly instructions, safety sheets, etc.), and more.
You probably don’t use a digital asset management system (DAM) to organize, store, and manage all the digital assets you care about systematically. Even if you use a DAM software like Widen DAM, preparing and transferring digital assets into PIM, linking them to applicable product SKUs, and synchronizing them to various digital channels is often a manual and error-prone process. Such an inefficient process often has a negative impact on digital customer experiences and sales. Not to mention, it is also a costly and complex operation to execute these operations using legacy processes.
A robust PIM and DAM integration will help transfer product related digital assets automatically from DAM into PIM and onto digital channels. It also supports a reverse sync, transfer key product information from PIM into DAM to minimize manual data entry of asset meta-data, and can enable efficient asset operations (search, enrich, update, expire, delete, etc.) in DAM.
StrikeTru’s Widen DAM for Akeneo Connector does just that. It automatically transfers digital assets managed in Widen DAM into Akeneo PIM, links those assets to products in PIM, enriches assets in DAM with product data retrieved from PIM, and expires digital assets in DAM based on product status maintained in PIM. It leverages APIs to integrate Widen DAM and Akeneo PIM. It can be deployed on-premise, and is also available as a cloud offering.
- Digital asset tasks in PIM initiated & managed within the connector
- Transfer Widen assets into PIM continuously (multiple times a day)
- Leverages Widen DAM and Akeneo PIM APIs
