Drive Digitalization With Data

Pimcore PIM for
Distribution Industry

Digital Strategy Is Changing the Rules

In the age of digital consumerism, the distribution industry is moving towards greater agility and granularity in supply chain efficiency and ‘anytime and anywhere’ product availability. Thus, it needs to strengthen its digital capabilities to match demand, ensure omni-channel engagement, and create new value-chains.

But to capitalize on this digital trend, the distribution industry needs advanced master data management and integrated supply chain strategy in SKUs, suppliers, and buyers’ information to seamlessly enable omni-channel presence, integrate new point-of-sale, reduce product-to-market time, and amplify revenue.

Fleurop AG

For over 100 years, Fleurop has stood for bringing happiness to a global audience via flowers. In 1908, the Berlin florist Max Hübner had an ingenious idea: when sending floral greetings, rather than having the flowers themselves make the trip, orders could be filled by local florists. Thus, the Fleurop principle was born.
