Event Information:

In today’s omnichannel world, businesses need to deliver more product information with more agility to guide buyers across the entire customer journey – not just the path to purchase. Join Forrester and Zurn Industries and find out how the role of PIM (Product Information Management) is broadening beyond just operational functionality.

The world of commerce today is not what it once was. It is omnichannel, multi channel and expanding into new marketplaces faster than anyone ever anticipated. That means today’s marketing, IT, and commerce teams need to deliver more product information and more details with more agility to meet changing buyer needs.

Forrester analyst Amanda LeClair and Elizabeth Haubenreiser from Zurn Industries will dive into how the role of PIM is broadening to support buyers’ demands for more valuable information across the entire customer journey. Together, they will examine why PIM is essential to delivering high-impact experiences and achieving operational excellence, including how companies should think about measuring content quality and completeness to support an enterprise content experience strategy.

Key learnings:

  • Why product content is critical to product experience
  • Identify the business-critical challenges PIM solutions solve
  • Examine the costs of poor customer experience, returns, and inadequate product information
  • Outline ROI factors for PIM
