Recap of IRCE16: What a great week in Chicago!

It’s always nice to attend an industry event and engage with our community - and our North American team had a great week at the IRCE event in Chicago doing just that. There were over 10,000 attendees at IRCE this year and Pimcore stood out amongst the other vendors because of our consolidated platform, open source pricing, single user interface and really cool booth.

Our team had the opportunity to meet very interesting industry people from small start-ups to major global enterprises. Many of the prospects we met had online businesses and some were online only – needless to say they were very interested in how our products could help them to increase their business J

From these conversations, we determined that there was a strong demand for PIM and Commerce as well as DAM. We also identified some of the most popular features of our platform - the flexibility and ease of integration were two key features that were common requests. Integration with back end order management, ERP and vendor feeds were also at the top of many lists.  It’s great that we know this so that we can meet these demands. We also impressed prospects with Pimcore’s omni-channel publishing capabilities – including web to print, WYSIWYG interface and our ever expanding portfolio of use cases.

We also met many other vendors that can provide plug-ins that will continue to improve the size of our community and the breadth of our offerings.

In the end, we enjoyed the great weather in Chicago and got to meet many interesting people.  From these conversations, we were able to better understand the requirements for Internet retailers and therefore know where we need to focus to best satisfy our customers.
