The business need that Kaczmarek Electric brought to us was collection of product information across systems and databases, so that it could apply consistent, standardized content and product attributes. To meet their needs, we created a Product Information Management system based on PimCore technology.
Implementation of PIM (Product Information Management) for Kaczmarek Electric S.A. required thorough analysis and close cooperation with the client in the process of developing the data model because of the complexity and multiple sources of product information. The target data model was developed in the course of workshops.
The sheer number of products in the manufacturer’s portfolio was also a challenge, but the solutions introduced in the design architecture ensure that the application provides maximum efficiency. The use of extended classification and ETIM attributes, taking into account the possibility of adding new attributes, made it possible to apply different classes of categories to products.
The project was conducting following agile methodology in order to provide a solution tailored to the customer’s needs. The agile approach to implementation allowed the client to verify the original assumptions from iteration to iteration, thus allowing changes to be made in the data model. The result was a solution meeting the client’s precise needs.
