"Great for many use cases - from PIM to eCommerce"

What do you like best?

The best thing about Pimcore is it's flexibility. We can start small - with simple (but custom) PIM solution - but after that we still have a lot of possibilites. We can grow our PIM with new features, we can transform it easily to MDM, include DAM or CRM capabilities. Using built-in CMS capabilities we can quickly use already existing product database to create a corporate website with eCatalog. From there we are just a small step from adding e-commerce capabilities.

The best thing - developers love it. Its framework approach means that we don't have to overwrite anything - we can create new features the way we want.

What do you dislike?

There are still some places in the codebase which are not yet optimized for extending Pimcore features with external bundles. Fortunately, Pimcore Core Team is working on this.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Most of the projects we are facing are in some way custom - there is no standard company with the standard data model, standard e-commerce needs or standard product workflow. Using Pimcore we can recreate the business needs of our clients in software instead of changing how businesses work because the software requires it.

"Pimcore has the most clear user interface and is the most intuitive DXP to use"

What do you like best?

Pimcore provides a very clear overview of the content we manage in our company. Compared to all other CMS systems we have worked with so far it has a clearer and better user interface and is a lot more intuitive to use. In the past we also worked with Hubspot, Adobe Experience Manager and Wordpress - with Pimcore we can work a lot faster and have a better content editing experience.

What do you dislike?

They recently changed the user interface which made it a bit difficult for us to navigate inside the admin backend. We had to re-learn some things which we already knew before. Sometimes the system crashes.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I like a lot that Pimcore connects all content with each other. If we move some content or rename images it always keeps the connection between the content and we never face any 404 errors. We especially appreciate the integrated DAM module which provides a central repository of our media assets. We can thus reuse the images and videos multiple times and do not have to reupload them again and again.

What Product Information Management (PIM) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Flexible system with unlimited usages"

What do you like best?

Pimcore is a highly flexible and reliable open-source solution. It is based on a well-known framework - Symfony which makes it easy to extend by developers. Creating a consistent data structure for all output channels is very easy thanks to the included management panel. This functionality significantly decreases TTM. Moreover, Pimcore is not only dedicated to PIM systems. A high variety of extensions makes it simple to use it as a CMS, eCommerce or simple ERP system.

What do you dislike?

Pimcore does not contain out-of-the-box integrations with the most popular eCommerce platforms. Included management panel is based on Ext.js that is not very popular among developers, thus is quite challenging to extend.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you want to use it as a PIM system that will be gathering data from different sources, processing, enriching and outputting info multiple channels Pimcore is a perfect solution for you.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have implemented Pimcore as a production information system, eCommerce platform, marketplace, and CMS page.

"Excellent Open Source to manage the content, very feasible and user friendly."

What do you like best?

Pimcore as Open Source allows solutions that customers can use in an elastic way including PIM, CMS and DAM.

The interface is extremely intuitive and thanks to various roles defined in the panel, the user can complete the content, products, attributes, prices, etc.

What's more, the system was created to maximize the work of developers, and its scalability and intuitiveness make the update does not require a lot of commitment on the part of employees.

The noticeable increase in Pimcore's management is an added benefit to the fact that it is becoming more and more popular in the e-commerce industry.

What do you dislike?

It is hard to find anything. For the first time, the panel was quite complicated.

"Open source Digital Experience Manager"

What do you like best?

The thing I like the most in Pimcore is his ability to be a tailored software for every need. Flexibility is its second name. Being a business owner you can benefit from this software on every level. You can manage products, clients, content - all in one administration panel, with the ability to customize it for every single user.

Having all this information in one place, you have a single source of truth for all your data. You can then share those data across all the online (e-commerce, ecatalog, marketplaces) and offline (leaflets, print catalogs, etc.) channels.

You don't have any online channel to share the data? No problem! Adding e-commerce/ecatalog functionality to the data source is as simple as 1-2-3. This gives you the power to create one platform to rule them all!

What do you dislike?

Would be great to have a wider range of plugins. Pimcore has a very vibrant community so it is easy to find a suitable partner for creating a tailored extension.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure to find a good partner with a wide experience. You'd be amazed by how your business can leverage on Pimcore, in the areas, that you would not even think of.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Create a consistent data structure from all incoming channels to unify and enrich them and be able to share them across all the channels.

The quality of our data has been increased dramatically.

"Great platform for managing product data and e-commerce"

What do you like best?

We like best the seamless architecture of Pimcore and that it consolidated all needed (in our case PIM/MDM, CMS and E-Commerce) functionalities in one single platform.

What do you dislike?

There is actually nothing to dislike within Pimcore. A default API interface to our ERP Oxaion would have been neat though.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you need a flexible Open-Source DXP, give Pimcore a detailed try.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We solved our data management issues (scattered data, siloed data) and created a B2B ecommerce portal for seeling our products.

"Incredible software application!"

What do you like best?

Pimcore has a unique platform where everything a software integrator, digital agency, professional or enterprise needs is all together in one place. A total digital transformation can take place with just the use of Pimcore’s own product suite which includes – CMS, DAM, PIM/MDM, and e-commerce. With Pimcore CMS, users can create, manage and easily maintain a digital experiences and its data all in a single source. It can then be published to all output channels: web, mobile, apps, social platforms, print and digital signage.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes uploading images can often be a long process. More instructions also need to be provided for the process.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Recommended for sure

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For any organization with a large product base, storing and managing the enormous amount of product information is challenging. Pimcore’s PIM platform enables easy organization, aggregation, classification, and translation of product information – all in a single location. Because of the consolidated product suite, the data can be easily delivered to all output channels.

"Pimcore - Experience Manager"

What do you like best?

I used the online shop interface for a setting up online presence of a steel pipe manufacturing business and Pimcore was an adequate choice, I must say.

It has almost all the aspects integrated into it like system finders and advance search tool to help customers narrow down their search etc. But what I found different was the multi-cart system. I didn't see this function in any other online interface provider and it was particularly suited for our industry. Being in Steel Pipe manufacturing and selling business we had a consumer base in several countries and customers would want different products such as A53 pipe , OCTG products or A500 tubing. All products have different duties and import criteria so multi-cart system really helped us and our customers to maintain separate records for their transactions.

What do you dislike?

While checkout process was smooth for most customers but data collection workflow after order placement could be a little bit better.

Also they could work a little more on customization. It's a great tool and I could set up the outlook as I wanted but I felt we could do with a little more freedom and options to change the look and feel of the shop.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

- If you are a newbie in E-commerce and looking for a software to start with...I think Primcore is one of the best solutions out there...It's cost effective and user friendly.

I never had a bad experience with their customer service and also our overseas clients never complained of any security or fraud issues which are unfortunately common with a lot of online tools. It is very secure and you have complete control over your shop.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Well, We set up our first online store and it was more of a learning experience for us as we never had significant online presence before. Our revenues were boosted by 6.3% in the first quarter and 10% of the total sales in year 2016 came from our E-commerce shop. I believe Pimcore helped us navigate the online business world.

" I recommend Pimcore for the most extended and sophisticated systems because of its flexibility."

What do you like best?

From my experience I will say that the most common objectives for the PIM solutions are:

- Risk reduction due to incorrect or incoherent data in all publishing channels.

- Control and monitoring for the process including cost and Time reduction during product data enrichment.

Coherent data needs complete model and Pimcore we can do that using a class definition - a graphical user interface (GUI). It helps to define objects for products, categories, manufacturers, vendors as a structured data. Then objects can be connected each other. Furthermore, that there is no need to have programming skills, so it can be done by the employees of the company.

For controlling the whole process it has to be implemented in the system, so everyone involved should work in the same place. Because most of the processes based on the flow, there is an option to map them on list of states and actions in Pimcore workflow. It can be applied for any of the defined objects like product, company, etc. and also for the images, documents (eg. certificate).

What do you dislike?

As Pimcore is more framework, it's documentation is more focused on developers than Business user. Fortunatelly it's changed lately, so more and more system areas are covered by documentation.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Maybe implementing data model and workflow sounds like a big expense but Pimcore comes as Open Source platform without licence cost, so this can be invested in custom development.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Pimcore technology helps enterprises maintain a consistent, shareable and accurate single version of product or service data across their organizations. This is very important when company want to enable digital business.

"Pimcore is the perfect foundation for setting up a CMS/DAM and/or PIM"

What do you like best?

Looking at the Pimcore feature set, one might get the impression that it tries to be too many things to excel in any - but it does. The key is Pimcore having just the right interfaces. It is not an "i can do anything but hard to adapt" system: any developer will actually enjoy implementing customer specific solutions.

What do you dislike?

Being a very flexible framework solution, pimcore generates code (such as ORM) in order to maintain systems performance - which is a good thing. On the other hand, this results in some file system dependencies making cloud-scale deployment a challenge. As this is a known issue, there are of course solutions, too.

Plese note: You are going to need some implementation support to get the maximum out of Pimcore - similar to all PIM solutions on the market.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

You should seek assistance of a Pimcore implementation partner for getting the best out of the system.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We implement about 100 Pimcore setups a year. These range from simple marketing sites, raffles to full fledged integrated CMS/DAM/PIM solutions with multi-channel marketing capabilities, E-commerce and Web2Print integrations.

"Outstanding framework for Digital Commerce"

What do you like best?

Pimcore is an outstanding framework for Digital Commerce. It combines content and e-commerce in a way, it’s been demanded for years, but has never actually been implemented in any framework or platform. Further, pimcore offers the functionality of a Content Management, - a Digital Asset Management (DAM), - and a Product Information Management system. In addition, pimcore provides a high-performance e-commerce framework to its partner agencies, in order to realize more ambitious Digital Commerce projects.

At first glance, the administrative backend gives the impression of pimcore to be a complete web application rather than being a framework. However, at second glance you will see, that the initially given functionality is generic. Pimcore processes any content, data and asset. Pimcore agencies will further implement the specific functionality with their clients. Pimcore is an advanced platform for innovative projects, as the recent Shop Usability Award shows. Blackbit won, with an e-commerce platform on pimcore basis, the award for "innovativster Online-Shop 2016" (most innovative Online-Shop 2016).

Hence, pimcore isn´t just innovative it is disruptive. Pimcore questions the business model of agencies, continuously taking over diligence work, that because of its technical complexity allegedly cannot be realized on client-side. Pimcore disenchants technology and serves its users the understanding of technology, with the help of an intuitive, even partially self-explanatory user interface. And this understanding of technology and its possibilities is, because of the progressing digitalization, urgently needed in those companies. Non-sustainable are systems, that keep their users on a certain distance to the technology and therefore prevent them, to discover new, creative and to their requirements adapted alternative uses.

What do you dislike?

The generic approach of pimcore as a framework means to re-implement many features that you will often find in other applications. On the other hand, this means to re-evaluate things you have already developed in the past and gives you an opportunity to continuously improve.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Consult an experienced pimcore partner to assist you in your implementation process. More often than not, it's not about technical complexity but rather defining the right goals and find the best approach to achieve your goals using pimcore.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Pimcore enables our customers to manage their data in a central location, aggregate data from various sources and transform it for different output channels and use cases. This means achieving business goals has become faster, easier and cheaper for our customers.

"It is a perfect toolbox for our data mangement requirements"

What do you like best?

The flexibility when it comes to data modelling and the number of attributes which are possible. The field collection and classification store features are especially helpful for complex data models. The user rights and role management features are quite advanced and we love the custom perspectives and layouts.

What do you dislike?

It takes a lot of effort to get started. There are no default configurations for specific industries. Its great flexibility can also be a weakness.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Data quality issues and data consistency problems. We improved the quality of our product data to create more consistent and better customer experience.

"The most flexible open-source framework for multiple purposes"

What do you like best?

The best thing in Pimcore is its flexibility which allows for creating different solution based on it. It's not only a PIM, not only a CMS or DAM - it compiles all these perspectives within one platform, easy to develop and quick to deploy. It provides great developer experience, at the same times ensuring that the end client will receive all they need for business purposes.

What do you dislike?

One thing that should be improved in Pimcore is its backend panel, which could use some UX and IU improvements, now done as a customization.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Pimcore helps us implement versatile e-commerce solutions for our clients, from CMS to configurators to PIM etc. Whenever we don't have idea what to use for a given purpose, most often it occurs that Pimcore is the most suitable.

"Outstanding Product with so much functionality"

What do you like best?

-- One Plateform for PIM and DAM

-- Core library in ZF which allows to use all the features of Framework

-- InBuilt API for Asset,Documents and Objects

-- Support of Ext JS along with Latest PHP Version

-- It also supports Redis for both backend and Frontend

-- So many Out of Box functionality makes it more easy to use .

What do you dislike?

-- there is no frontend because you have to write your own controllers and views. But this can be a big advantage if you hate customizing frontends (like typo3 with all the css you have to customize)

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have used Pimcore Object feature for a client where data is fetched ,saved and updated through API for a frontend which is in different Technology

"There's so much functionality, after 5 years I'm still discovering"

What do you like best?

The pimcore framework is packed full of functionality, which makes web application development from CMS to CRM lightning fast! But what strikes me the most about this constantly evolving platform is that every feature is generic enough to extend, with hardly any compromises.

What do you dislike?

In recent years many content management systems have started to jump ahead in terms of admin panel access. Although I am a fan of ExtJS I find that the licensing restrictions around this commercial platform come with some restrictions. It's great that Pimcore offers long term support as this is an enterprise ready product after all, but some of this long term support does limit future technology choices.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend finding a pimcore solution partner that specialises in your business use case.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're solving a range of problems. From data collection and information management right through to data visualisation and analytics.

We've been able to provide the majority of application support for our clients using Pimcore and have found the core team to be great to work with to help improve the platforms we create.

"Addressed our unique business requirement like a pro"

What do you like best?

The Pimcore platform handled our specific requirement very well.

What do you dislike?

It requires a lot of planning and specification because the platform is so flexible.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The reason for choosing Pimcore was that numerous customer-specific assortments and price calculations were necessary. Pimcore handles such specific use cases very well. Individual product ranges with customer-specific prices can be activated for corporate B2B customers, normal customers and for individual landing pages. Pimcore was quite easy to implement.

"Leading opensource PIM and MDM platform"

What do you like best?

Pimcore is a multi dimensional platform which allows you not only to do properly PIM, but also MDM and asset management.

What do you dislike?

Lack of a extension exchange possibility. However we where informed that this would be launched by next year.

We integrate Pimcore as our base system for basically managing all types of data. Such as CMS data, product data, customer data as in all master data. We use this data to distribute to any type of system which gives our customers more control over the data they are exchanging.
