A 'nom de plume' for one of our talented wordsmiths...

We are happy to officially announce Akeneo as our PIM partner!

Akeneo is an open source Product Information Management (PIM) system designed for retailers looking for efficient answers to their multichannel needs. A Product Information Management (also known as PIM, PCM or Products MDM) is a tool that help merchants to centralize and harmonize all the technical and marketing information of their catalogues and products. The main purpose of a PIM is to be a central repository of all product data of a company. From a technical point of view, a PIM helps to extract and harmonize data, and propagate data to / from different sources. From a functional point of view, a PIM helps to classify, enrich and translate your product information.

As 2014 kicks off, Balance Internet has teamed up with Akeneo to provide holistic commerce solutions to our current and future retail, franchise and enterprise clients.  Akeneo seamlessly integrates into our Magento-based business and allows for technology diversification that meets the growing needs of our clients.

We are very excited about our partnership with Akeneo and look forward to integrating the Akeneo ecosystem into our business. It is the next step for so many of our clients, said James Horne, Managing Director of Balance Internet.

Akeneo share the excitement of James and the rest of the Balance Internet team.  We can’t wait to work with them to deliver a better customer experience for our joint customers.
