Product Information Management

The range of products available within the stationery, office product and commercial furniture industry is both vast and varied. It is continuously evolving, with manufacturers, brands and suppliers keen on expanding their brand influence, adding to their stable of products and associated services on an ongoing basis.

The listing of new products and the removal of those discontinued makes range management challenging, while the ongoing development and improvements to the products continuously change their features, specifications and applications, requiring the constant updating of published material.

The BrandHub PIM system has been designed specifically to assist the office product and furniture dealer with product costing. Product costs within existing accounting and ERP systems are mostly inaccurate, unreliable and require constant updating to effectively manage quoting and client selling prices.

The BrandHub PIM offers turnkey product content within a secure framework, with updated pricing directly from supplier price lists.

Challenges for effective Product Information Management

  1. Extensive application range and product diversity.
  2. Volume of products competing for need fulfillment.
  3. Product development and application evolution.

We manage and maintain a database listing of all the products available within the local office products and furniture industry.

Each product listing contains detailed descriptions, images, available video and other media, as well as the respective product codes, descriptions and packaging information for all the major manufacturers and suppliers.

The PIM is configured to enable price updates directly from the supplier price lists by upload or direct synching. Uploads can be set to become active at a future date.
