Episerver Commerce + PIM
When working with advanced e-commerce solutions as a developer or consultant you quickly get introduced to the acronym PIM: Product Information Management. What is it and why would you want one as part of your Episerver e-commerce project?
Getting the product data
Depending on the customer you might work with tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of individual products that you want to be available in the final e-commerce solution. Although possible, you don’t want to manually enter and update all these products in the Episerver Commerce administration interface. The products most likely already exists in the company’s ERP system, and building an integration to such a system is often an essential step of a successful Episerver Commerce project.
