Typical PIM use
What is the typical use of Icecat PIM? First of all, It helps channel partners to integrate large amounts of product data in their own systems. The Icecat PIM is based on MySQL, XML and Perl and runs on Linux environments, and can be the in-house data hub for a serious ebusiness. Second, it has an editor backoffice which is used in the large-scale publishing environment of Icecat where 100s of editors can work simultaneously.
Therefore, the Icecat PIM is very useful to support the publishing process of product data by manufacturers, publishers or sophisticated ecommerce companies.
