Omni-channel support is now essential for many merchants, whose customers keep demanding more continuity and consistency in their shopping experience. From physical stores to e-commerce sites, mobile apps and distributors, points of contact with customers keep growing in number…

However, making the leap to implementation is far from being straightforward and it has become quite difficult for merchants to ensure the overall product data consistency required for CXM (Customer eXperience Management) on all these points of contact. The integration of a PIM (Product Information Management) solution with the information system does a great deal towards running an omni-channel strategy with peace of mind.
