Basic product listings will not cut it for online shoppers or help you explode sales
So how to manage product data & marketing content across complex and disconnected systems? A robust PIM and DAM integration.
Digital Asset Management (DAM) is the management of rich media content. Product Information Management (PIM) stores, manages, enriches, and distributes customer-ready product content across all digital touchpoints.
Integrated PIM and DAM systems have come center stage in ecommerce marketing technology. Scalable ecommerce and successful multichannel marketing, demand automated and near real-time access to and distribution of digital assets, tightly layered with product metadata, across channels. Ecommerce success today is about delivering product content that makes products jump off the shelf, creating deeply engaging customer experiences.
Sadly, many product companies still believe they can run the show with fragmented product information and digital asset libraries, cut-pasted from various databases, managed as separate components in the ecommerce mar-tech stack, but the limitations are obvious!
Manual work and rework, ineffective and uneconomical processes, unwieldy storage, findability and discoverability, an alarming number of silos that halt productivity and scalability – both vital to delivering personalized customer experiences and getting your products to market on time.
Forrester defines the integration of PIM and DAM solutions as the power couple for a successful content strategy. Rightly so. Marrying authoritative product data with timely digital assets for highly targeted marketing content represents a huge opportunity for successful sales growth.
