Customer Case: Streamlining Product Data Management with Perfion PIM System
B8, a prominent vendor of furnishing solutions for businesses and public institutions, was faced with challenges in managing its extensive range of 50,000 components and products. This led to data fragmentation and inefficiencies in product data handling, impeding their growth prospects.
B8 embarked on a mission to enhance scalability and operational efficiency. They sought a comprehensive solution to consolidate and streamline their product data management processes, with a focus on optimizing data accessibility, reducing duplication, and improving overall sales operations.
The company decided to implement the Perfion Product Information Management (PIM) system as their central product data repository. Perfion’s flexibility, rapid deployment capabilities, and built-in features such as the “Print Publishing” module made it a suitable choice for B8’s requirements.
With Perfion, B8 adopted a systematic approach to organizing product data. They undertook the task of integrating Perfion with their existing systems, including ERP (Lawson M3) and CMS (Umbraco). This integration paved the way for the creation of an innovative online product configurator.
