Case Study: Pimcore for the Management and Addition of Product Data and Other Structured Data
Saint-Gobain Weber is a leading manufacturer of building materials for facades/walls, thermal insulation/ ETICS, flooring, tiling, mortar and building protection systems.
The project involved replacing the old PIM system and transferring all data cleanly to Pimcore. Pimcore also took over the complete asset management with DAM and the organisation of non-product data with MDM. Furthermore, twocream realised the automated implementation of price lists and packaging with the help of EasyCatalog.
Customer Key Facts
Data management, data export and connection of publishing tools
The agenda for the project was clearly outlined: In addition to the clean data management of all structured data and assets in Pimcore, the further focus was on data export to the most diverse channels. Not only the existing website had to be supplied, but also different databases. Highlights of the project are the automatic generation of technical datasheets (PDFlib) price lists and packaging (EasyCatalog) as well as an individual workflow management. As always, extensive analysis and conceptual work stood at the beginning of all work on this project.
Pimcore supports with perfect connection points and extensive standard
What matters is what comes out the back.
From the very beginning, twocream closely involved the customer in the conception phase. The result is a successful overall product with which not only data can be managed but also supplemented with further information. Workflows support the entire process and thus decisively minimize the error rate. The challenge of databased publishing was also implemented in the Pimcore standard in such a way that further processing for the subsequent systems is unproblematic.
