  • Use of the PIM/MDM and DAM system Pimcore


Control over data and channels

The amount of manual maintenance had to be significantly reduced. The same applied to the import of image data and the comparison of master data with the ERP system.
 

Effort and work reduction

AFEW chose the Pimcore PIM and DAM solution and as implementation partner twocream from Wuppertal.

twocream received the order for the realization of the project with technical conception, development and implementation. The twocream team developed the Pimcore modules and designed the different data models for various specific requirements.

Teamwork with ERP, Shopify and other old friends

Pimcore gets its data from the ERP system and was connected to the online shop (Shopify) via API. The image import was solved via a hotfolder function, where the allocation of the images is highly automated. Not only product data is transferred to Shopify, but also the content pages of the online shop receive their data from Pimcore. Various product feeds are automatically extracted from Pimcore in short time intervals and made available online. Finally, the Afew team also controls the social media channels via Pimcore based on the Pimcore product data.

Pictures, pictures, pictures

The online sale of sneakers thrives on the pictures. Particularly with special, rare models, customers want to see the product as good as possible. This is where Pimcore's DAM module with its automated processes shows its strengths for the processing of images in large numbers.

In Pimcore, the new information base of AFEW, all information can be found. Therefore Pimcore as a PIM-/DAM-system has an essential role in the system architecture.
