Enable customers and partners to access your product portfolio

The Product Information Management (PIM) solution allows you to provide Marketing, Sales and Order Management with the latest information about your products. To do this, the data from different sources is merged, edited and, for example, made available to your customers and partners in web catalogs. Reliable automated processes, workflows and harmonized access protection simplify this process and make it secure.

Automatically merge product data from sources such as ERP and PLM

Efficient master data management (MDM) ensures that all the necessary data from different sources such as PDM, PLM, CRM and ERP systems is merged. Use CONTACT Elements' Catalyst technology for this purpose as it was designed for this task. You can also use the extremely powerful attribute and classification system to systematically structure your product portfolios and assortment of spare parts in line with market requirements.

Make publishing your product information simple and secure

Incorrect information in publications can have serious implications. Therefore use tried-and-tested procedures for validating data, the role and permissions system for assigning editing and reviewing tasks, and digital workflows for secure execution of the individual work steps. Audit trails ensure that all changes to documents are logged automatically. If certain information is particularly critical, you can also use the legally-compliant digital signature procedure.

Automatically combine data, text and images to create online and print content

Informative catalog data merges product and performance attributes, editorial texts, images, drawings and 3D representations. Customers and partners are also provided with digital access to documents such as manuals, change information and so on. Use our powerful technical document management system (DMS) and our 3D Connect model engine, which provides native CAD data in widely used standard formats such as PDF and 3D PDF. You can also use powerful libraries and template mechanisms like Enrich PDF to automatically compile documents in the desired target formats.
