Is it time you got SaaSy about your growth strategy? At Pimberly, we live and breathe business growth. PIM lies right at the heart of any robust business growth strategy. An effective tech stack and efficient business processes are some of the core pillars of growing your eCommerce business.
Because product information plays such a crucial role in eCommerce success, you need to streamline the management process. If you’re looking to expand your offering, or extend your reach to new channels or geographies, deploying a PIM is essential. PIM’s powerful automation means you can reduce over 80% of manual tasks. Massively reduce duplicated workloads and put the fun back into eCommerce. More time saved means you can concentrate on growing your eCommerce business. Here’s how:
Global eCommerce and cross-border activity represent huge opportunities for businesses. A recent report from Research and Markets showed that one in two global consumers now purchase cross-border. You can also increase sales by between 10-15% by going global. Overall, cross-border and global trade is definitely on the rise, growing by 14% annually (wowzah)!
The world is your oyster
For Gill Marine, the world is now their oyster. Pimberly has enabled Gill Marine to totally champion its international eCommerce operations. Operating across 35 different countries in four different languages, they needed a robust solution to back them.
One really notable international milestone they reached was the launch of Gill Fishing. Fishing is BIG in the States, and they wanted to jump right in. The team at Gill came to us with a very specific project in mind, and they wanted to move fast.
With the help of Pimberly, a dedicated eCommerce site was built in-house and from scratch. This saved them loads of time and money. In less than one month of starting the project, they were already processing their first orders.
Global PIM prospects
Localization is an absolutely essential part of your international growth strategy. Your customers want to have product information available in their language. They want to see sizes and measurements that make sense to them and pay using their own currency.
You can manage all of this with a dedicated PIM solution. Store, translate, enrich and distribute your product data across all channels, in as many different languages as you need. You can also store all prices in the different currencies of the countries you serve, all in one place.
Because there are vast differences from region to region, it’s important to tailor your product descriptions and assets to suit different needs and cultures. Scoping features enable you to do this quickly and easily. You can also focus on creating localized SEO strategies to make sure your products see an increased reach.
Super speedy time to market
Bring disparate systems and siloed product information together in one centralized hub – your PIM platform. 79% of products don’t launch on time because of these barriers to growth. Across industries, new product launches account for 25% of revenue. This is why it’s so important to get your product launches right.
Being able to quickly onboard new products or launch a new product range brings about so many opportunities to boost sales. The more variety you have, the more your customers will be browsing about. Offer kits and bundles to jump on up-sell and cross-sell opportunities. When done right, you can create great customer experiences and significantly increase your sales.
Drastically downsizing on time
Our customer, Bombinate, has massively expanded its product range with the help of Pimberly. It divided its time to market by 10 in just one month after implementing Pimberly.
Another customer of ours that drastically reduced time to market is Arthouse. The team used to spend at least a week locating and preparing digital assets ahead of a new product launch. With Pimberly, they were able to do this in just 15 minutes!
Regatta also reaped the rewards of the Pimberly platform. Product ranges change, and those changes need to be managed efficiently across all channels. Before Pimberly, it used to take three weeks for product changes to reflect. The changes made now reflect pretty much instantly.
Time-saving PIM prospects
PIM gives you a centralized hub for all your product data and digital assets. Because everything is gathered, stored enriched and distributed from one place, your team has full visibility and can collaborate effectively.
Data from multiple feeds can be easily imported in any format, giving you the power to create a single source of truth. When it comes to expanding or updating your product range, you can do this really quickly with Pimberly’s functionality.
You can use lifecycle stages and triggers within Pimberly to determine the status of your products. With visual dashboards, you can easily identify where products are up to in the launch phase. Use triggers and create powerful automations to set requirements that need to be met before the product moves through the process. Workflows automate this process, meaning you’ll never launch a product with missing information.
When you’ve got updates to make, it’s crucial these are reflected as soon as possible across all your channels. Your customers need up to date product information to make informed buying decisions. API’s collect product information from multiple data sources and you can carry out bulk updates in Pimberly which reflect almost instantly. This saves you heaps of time, and it also means your customers always have the most accurate and complete product data.
You can also manage your digital assets with speed in Pimberly. With unique identifiers, you can automatically link your digital assets to the related products. We also use the power of AI to automatically identify what is in an image and it even recognizes faces, so you can filter by model name. Say goodbye to the days of having to manually name every single asset you use.
