• Product Information Management (PIM) Software

    Improve the quality of data and keep your product catalog always up-to-date

Effective sales support thanks to a central source for all product information

The product portfolio management application built on the basis of the Productive24 technology is a tool that streamlines the process of expanding the range of products as well as collecting and updating product information. The solution ensures data consistency and standardization, thanks to which product specification is complete and error-free. The application acts as a reliable source of information about the products for the entire organization and its stakeholders.

Implementation of Productive24 has increased the standarization of our data and improved the process of introducing a new product for sale. The automation provided by Productive24 also involved our suppliers and enabled us to achieve full transparency and control in this process. As a result, we reduced time-to-market by as much as 52%.
