How PIM/DAM Platform Can Unlock More Values in 2022
Based on the upward growth in digital commerce in 2020-21, most brands aggressively focus on improving customer experience (CX) using product information and digital assets capabilities. Product content that was earlier seen as ‘just simple information about the product’ now significantly contributes to extending the reach and improving the sale of products and services. As a result, platforms like product information management (PIM) and digital asset management (DAM) are becoming more prominent to unlock hidden product content values.
Though PIM and DAM platforms' capabilities are clearly defined, brands are often required to finetune their current product information and digital asset management strategy to deliver the inherent values of their products and services consistently and reliably.
In the near future, the role of the PIM and DAM platforms will become crucial to building the most impactful brand stories. Moreover, brands will use the PIM and DAM systems to improve product storylines to respond to the dynamic new market and environmental factors, such as the COVID-19 pandemic. We believe, in 2022, PIM and DAM platforms will become mature enough to deliver business values beyond their core capabilities. Key improvement areas where PIM and DAM can add more values include:
Build Next-level Product Experience
Brands will focus more on covering the complete life cycle of product content to provide a seamless experience. That’s why emphasis within the market is not only on product information management but also on product experience management. The management of product information happens before it is used in digital commerce; thus, the importance will be given more on product 360-degree view, rich product content, and unified experience whenever and wherever customers interact with brands. But this will demand better governance, management, and reusability of product information and digital assets to attain superior channel management and engaging product experience.
Pimcore enables you to enhance product experiences by providing your customers with real-time product information in consumer-facing PIM portals. The Pimcore Product Experience Portal (PXP) helps you aggregate, centralize, manage, and share every aspect of your rich product information for all channels with a single, integrated system.

Target Diverse Audiences and Create Micro Opportunities
Brands now have a staggering amount of highly granular product data, although it is not always available in a ready-to-use format to take instant actions. Now product data can be used not just simply targeting random people in a particular demographic; PIM platforms give the capability to translate a sea of information into more focused and actionable insights.
Brands can be more precise in distributing and syndicating product data across channels to target and reach audiences along their buying life cycle. Scaling this “smart reach” approach widely across marketing initiatives can unlock hidden pockets of growth within thousands of audiences.
