Why use PIM?



When a retailer needs to have an eCommerce site, the company needs to decide on a contractor and develop the entire online store. Of course, at some point, a developer needs to have content for the eCommerce website. To make the process of content creation and information transmission easier, the company and the contractor need to have a connector between ERP and Magento. However, even having a connector does not help much in having the necessary content for the eCommerce website.

As a result, the eCommerce store is going to have a bad brand image, bad SEO, lower conversion rate, and higher returns rate.
