PIM-Consulting

Our core service: independent PIM consulting

We will support you in consistently implementing your product data strategy from conception and the
selection of your PIM system, right up to go-live.
This means that we ensure the sustainable development of your IT processes, data quality and employees.

We rely on modules that have been developed by us and tried and tested in practice and we combine
these to meet the customer’s needs. For us, care and sustainability of your company are more important
than short-term “project populism”

We always produce an analysis and conception before the system selection phase. Only in this way can
we ensure that you invest in a PIM system that perfectly reflects your needs – and not those of today or
yesterday, but those of tomorrow!

Selecting your PIM system via a quick and supposedly cheap route only leads to limited target attainment
during the subsequent conception phase as a result of the chosen system’s capabilities. This may
happen because you have to do a lot of customizing or because of limited functions: Either way, you
always end up paying in the end!

PIM-Consult is and remains 100 percent independent!

We consciously avoid commissions, kickbacks, partner agreements and
similar activities from PIM providers.
We guide our customers during the implementation phase, but do
not program so that we remain independent in this area as well. This means that we only have a duty
to our customers. We employ only salaried and experienced consultants. This combination means that
PIM-Consult has a unique position on the German market.
