Should a retailer’s systems integrator be PCI compliant?
Quality and availability of product data across sales channels is a challenge for many retail businesses. Product Information Management (PIM) is a specialised area of Master Data Management (MDM) which seeks to provide a ‘single truth’ of product data, addressing the unique requirements of ecommerce and retail businesses such as publication, internationalisation, workflow, imagery management and content enrichment.
Javelin Group partners in this area are Stibo Systems and Informatica, leading providers of enterprise PIM and MDM solutions. We implement solutions which can provide either a single view of the product catalogue across all channels, or can be tailored to manage data for an individual channel, such as a website storefront. We have recently completed implementation projects for Halfords (read case study) and Jumbo Supermarkten (read case study) and currently have other PIM projects in development.
Please see below for product information management clients, or contact Anthony Farrow at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your requirements.
We are delighted with our new PIM solution and the enhanced customer experience it provides across our web, mobile and tablet sites. Javelin Group has been central to the delivery of this project, from their expertise in technology strategy to experience in development. It has been a pleasure to work with the Javelin Group team on this project.
Clive West, Digital Director, Halfords.
At Jumbo Supermarkten we aim to offer our customers the best service, the largest range and the lowest prices, and we are now delighted to be able to extend our unique formula to our customers via online shopping. With The Netherlands’ online grocery market expected to triple in the coming years, we embarked on this project with Javelin Group almost two years ago to meet the current and future needs of our customers. Javelin Group has been central to the success of Jumbo.com, from initial definition, through design to implementation. It has been a delight to work with such a professional team at Javelin Group and I am immensely proud of what we have achieved together.
