Product information management system

The abbreviation PIM stands for Product Information Management. A PIM system is a business application that streamlines internal processes so organisations can deliver consistent, high-quality product information to their customers. A PIM solution manages product data and makes it available for use in different output media, distribution channels and at different locations. For example, product descriptions and attributes can be made available for translation, then checked and updated by local marketing.

Synonyms: PIM, PIM solution, PIM tool, PIM platform
