Delivery of a high-quality PIM system that meets your business requirements can be tough. There are risks to mitigate, stakeholders to include, fine-tuning to be done, prioritization and re-prioritization and many other ups and downs to contend with when you’re considering digital transformation via PIM implementation.
PIM implementation typically involves process and role changes, data quality improvements, migrations, and integrations. To minimize risks, these changes must be managed carefully and deliberately. The end goal depends on a solid plan that charts out important milestones, all the way to the destination.
“Before anything else, preparation is the key to success.”
StrikeTru provides that level of focused preparation and planning to ensure your data-driven digital transformation is a scalable success. Our well-rounded service offerings are a full life-cycle iterative process characterized by the following features:

We are driven to deliver business solutions that accelerate your ROI realization. From strategic project planning all the way to solution implementation and post implementation support, read on to discover our capabilities and full-range of service offerings to guide you through your PIM implementation journey.
For any PIM project to be successful, it’s important for the PIM vendor to work in close collaboration with management. Here at StrikeTru, we realize the importance of making sure all stakeholders from different levels of management and departments understand the full scope of the project, both strategic & operational, involved in ensuring a smooth and cost-effective PIM implementation.
What sets us apart from other PIM vendors in the market is that even before diving into the project scope, we help our customers actually ‘see’ what PIM can achieve for them and how. We are experts at demystifying PIM for our customers. We achieve this by mapping customer’s product data over the best-fit PIM tool and defining the future state data collection, management and syndication requirements that are in line with the long-term business goals of the organization.
