ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) is a system for managing a company's daily activities. It supports many functions such as accounting, purchasing, sales, project and risk management, customer service, product manufacturing, and more. The system works to improve business intelligence and reduce operational costs. The ERP platform optimizes reporting, predicts effective demand, and monitors supply chains. It has product information management features, but still, PIM greatly expands your catalog capabilities. PIM (Product Information Management)
store information about products, allowing you to manage, transfer and expand information on the most popular marketplaces in the world. PIM collects data in one place: sales proposals, photos, content. The system acts as a single reference center for managing and structuring product catalogs.
For example, the ERP platform does not provide customized functionality for suppliers or manufacturers. Your partners cannot upload products or manage content. Modern PIM has the functionality of a personal account for a merchant with functions for importing files in various formats. The supplier manages the products and also interacts with the partner's content manager via chat.
