A PIM (Product Information Management) is a tool to gather all your product information in a single place, enrich them and be able to distribute across multiple channels. By-product information, we mean all details related to a product such as marketing information (name, description, SEO tags, etc.) technical information (product specifications, configurations, data sheets, etc.) media information (images, videos etc.)
An attribute is a property of a product. This may be color, size, dimensions, price etc.. There are several types of attributes for a product and with PIMworks, every attribute is configurable.
A taxonomy is one of the most important elements when it comes to product information management. It’s a structured hierarchical list with nodes in which products are organized based on their categories. Attributes can define for categories in a taxonomy which lets products to be classified to required nodes.
Feeds are external sources with a list of products with their data which can be ingested to PIMworks. A feed is a structured form of multiple product information that comes in different formats and sources like your ERP, database, MDM, etc
While a feed was the input that provides information to PIMworks, a channel is where you want to send the data to from PIMworks. It simply allows you to define how product information should be transformed and delivered to a particular sales channel i.e. your website, mobile app or external system through connectors.
