PIM for the Publishing Industry

Enter an exciting next chapter of business growth with Sales Layer PIM

PIM for the Publishing Industry

Transform the narrative

Change can be hard for any organization, but for publishing houses or printing services, it can be even harder. Outdated processes are commonplace, with many decision-makers maintaining a risk-averse attitude to digitization, even as the number of SKUs that teams must manage continues to grow.

The need for the industry to evolve its product information management processes is intensified by the digitization of the products themselves at the same time. The recent introduction of eBooks and Audiobooks has increased the amount of SKUs for publishers to carry. As a result, product and marketing teams are facing mounting pressure to provide buyers and consumers with accurate, complete product information across a growing number of touchpoints.

Transform the narrative

New markets, managed automatically

Preparing for the future is a challenging task. When your business enters a new phase of growth, this can bring new markets with new geographical requirements and languages. Managing B2B expansion with traditional methods can mean months of manual translations being individually copied and pasted into each document. Any updates or changes to pricing and/or details have to be updated manually, starting the process all over again and massively slowing down print times.

The built-in multi-language features of a PIM can save your team months of time and hours of manual effort, allowing you to spend more time focusing on other areas of the business.

Manual product data processes are often slow and laborious, reducing efficiency and damaging the company’s bottom line as a result. With Sales Layer PIM, you can upload the product data sheets you work from to a centralized database. Here, all data can be stored, edited and then sent out across all of your selling channels. With one single source of truth for your product data, you can be sure that all of your teams are accessing the latest edition of your product catalog. Workflows and permissions can be set up for marketing, quality assurance, customer service and all of your other teams. With a clear view of each edit and editor, as well as a full version history, you can ensure that each team has access to the data they need and can perform their tasks without the worry of overwriting data or duplication.
