KOSMOS

MIGRATION TO PIMCORE AS D2C CMS

  • Migration of a uniform and central content management system in which all product data is centrally maintained
  • Kosmos employees can maintain product data themselves via Pimcore CMS and flexibly combine data for playout
  • Import of customised product data into online store based on Spryker
  • Hosting of Pimcore as test, staging and productive system

"Kosmos.de originally started as a pure content marketing platform without a B2C focus. Before the store was added, it was a pure TYPO3 site that pulled data from the PIM. The technologies were outdated with time. Our goal was: digital new age, i.e. no more content marketing platform, but D2C in focus on a scalable technological basis, with fully digitalised processes."

DO YOU HAVE ANY MORE QUESTIONS ABOUT PIMCORE?

Then take a look at our FAQ. Here we answer frequently asked questions.

A PIM solution (Product Information Management) is a system that helps companies to manage product data centrally. It ensures that all information about a product, such as descriptions, prices and images, is stored and organised in one place. This makes it easy to ensure that this data is always up-to-date and consistent across all sales channels.

A product information management system (PIM) is essential for anyone who manufactures or sells products. It optimises data management, whether for online shops, print catalogues or other channels. A PIM ensures consistent, high-quality product data across all sales channels. This improves the time-to-market and conversion rate and prevents abandoned purchases. With a PIM, all data is centralised and easy to update, which simplifies work for employees and partners. Choosing a suitable PIM system is a smart move to make your business more efficient and customer-centred.

A PIM (Product Information Management) system complements an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system by focussing specifically on the management of product data for digital omnichannel commerce. While ERP software efficiently manages core business processes such as inventory management and finance, it is less suited to the detailed maintenance of product information. PIM fills this gap and is particularly suitable for companies with many or complex products. It offers detailed management of product descriptions, images and specifications. A PIM is therefore ideal for presenting and managing your product data in the best possible way, especially in multi-channel sales.

The cost of a PIM system can vary greatly depending on the provider and the specific requirements of your company. Basically, there are three main cost factors:

Licence fees: Some PIM systems are open source and free, others have annual or monthly licence fees.
Implementation costs: Setting up and customising the system to your needs can incur additional costs.
Maintenance and support: Ongoing costs for updates, support and any customisations.

For an individual cost indication, tailored to your requirements, we recommend a non-binding initial consultation.

There are usually no direct licence costs for open source PIM systems such as Pimcore, but there may be costs for special software editions or premium modules. 

The costs for a product information management system (PIM) depend heavily on the individual needs and complexity of your company. A major cost factor is often the customised development or configuration to integrate the PIM system into your existing IT infrastructure and business processes. 

The implementation costs include various items:

  • Licence costs per user

  • Software setup and installation

  • Customisation and integration into existing systems

  • Data migration

  • Maintenance and support

Companies with an advanced IT infrastructure or a willingness to invest in customised developments can achieve long-term cost savings with a PIM system. As a Pimcore partner, we would be happy to discuss your requirements for an initial cost indication.

A product information management system (PIM) is a central platform for all of a company's product data. It stores and organises important information such as product name, article number (SKU), weight, dimensions, colours and materials. A PIM system also manages information on prices, availability, guarantees, etc. The PIM system enables efficient management and updating of this data so that it is easily accessible at all times. This is particularly useful for companies with a large variety of products or those that offer different product variants and customisation options. By centralising all relevant product information in one system, the company saves time and reduces the risk of errors, resulting in more accurate product communication.

A product information management system (PIM) simplifies the management and distribution of product information across all sales channels. It serves as single, reliable source for all product data, giving customers direct access to accurate and up-to-date information. A PIM system also makes it easier to track and respond to customer feedback. By automating the aggregation and normalisation of data from multiple sources, operating costs are reduced. Implementing a PIM system can save your business time and money by helping you avoid common pitfalls and optimise your processes.

When selecting a product information management system (PIM), it is crucial to precisely define the project scope and the objectives of the PIM implementation in order to create a comprehensive catalogue of requirements. This takes into account general requirements that are relevant for many companies, such as user-friendliness, integration, scalability, functionality, costs, support and maintenance. At the same time, it is important to consider specific requirements related to your individual data model or the connection to specific target channels. As a Pimcore agency, we would be happy to discuss your requirements in a non-binding initial consultation.
