This year’s event is highlighted by inriver’s new breed of PIM, an evolution of traditional product information management solutions. As a result of this new breed of PIM, inriver announced continued product innovation to the inriver PIM platform, including ChatGPT functionality to create efficiencies for augmenting product data, and further showcased the power of its now-available syndication capabilities. These innovations have allowed inriver to deliver even more operational efficiency, built-in digital shelf analytics, expanded sales opportunities, and greater sustainability benefits.
“We face unprecedented demand for more sustainability from brands, retailers, and manufacturers as a result of our increasingly circular economy. PIMpoint Europe 2023 comes at such a pivotal moment for our community,” said Niels Stenfeldt, inriver CEO. “As the world prepares for the European Union’s new Digital Product Passport initiative, the new breed of PIM turns global demands for supply chain transparency into new growth drivers for manufacturing companies. There is no better time to welcome our peers across so many industries for meaningful conversations for the future.”
Joining inriver are customer and partner showcases led by leading brands such as Michelin, Victorinox, Öob, Fluidra and more. These brands represent world-class PIM users that inriver helps create, enrich, and syndicate product information across a variety of channels and marketplaces.
Another brand, and inriver customer appearing at PIMpoint is Lantmännen, Northern Europe’s leader in agriculture, machinery, bioenergy and food products. Owned by 18,000 Swedish farmers and with 10,000 employees, Lantmännen has operations in over 20 countries and an annual revenue of approximately SEK 60 billion.
“Lantmännen has a long-term approach to farming, taking an active role in creating more sustainable energy and food supply. We take responsibility from field to fork and focus on issues that are of importance for sustainable, profitable, and thriving farming,” said Håkan Jägbrink, Platform Manager for the IT Commercial Backbone at Lantmännen. “As we are building a sustainable value chain across multiple companies and industries, Lantmännen requires our product data to be complete and accurate. The inriver PIM solution allows us to connect the data across people, processes, and our metadata structure for our 7 different companies. The inriver PIM’s flexible, elastic data model powers our product journey to drive efficiencies and cost reductons. Further, inriver is developing in exactly the right direction for our upcoming requirements.”
