IDC MARKETSCAPE NAMES SALSIFY A LEADER IN PRODUCT INFORMATION MANAGEMENT (PIM) FOR COMMERCE

New IDC MarketScape vendor assessment highlights ease of use, data model flexibility and syndication as core strengths of Salsify’s PIM platform

Salsify, a product experience management (PXM) platform that helps brands win on the digital shelf, has been named a Leader in PIM for Commerce in the new IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Product Information Management Applications for Commerce 2019 Vendor Assessment (Doc #US45353419, December 2019), which can be downloaded here. The report identifies syndication, ease of use, and data model flexibility as strengths that resulted in Salsify being named as a Leader in the study.

Companies should consider Salsify when they are a “brand manufacturer who understands the importance of creating consistent, engaging, and multi-channel product experiences to drive commerce,” wrote Jordan Jewell, Research Manager, Digital Commerce and Enterprise Applications, IDC, in the report. “Salsify is for those manufacturers looking for a flexible and scalable, multi-tenant SaaS PIM offering.”

PIM is only one part of Salsify’s PXM platform, which boasts global customers such as L’Oreal, Mars, Coca-Cola, Nestle, Levi Strauss, and GSK. According to the IDC MarketScape report, “Salsify’s PIM supports very flexible data modeling. One customer described Salsify as a PIM that allows you to “choose your own adventure.” Unlike traditional PIMs that were built to manage a single internal brand standard, Salsify’s PXM platform helps manufacturers manage and activate channel-optimized product content across the digital shelf. Another strength noted in the report, “Salsify was developed with syndication as a top priority and its syndication capabilities are strong. One customer reported that it takes just one click to syndicate its products/catalogs to marketplaces such as Amazon.”

“Brand manufacturers are under constant pressure today to win on the digital shelf, the rapidly evolving collection of digital touchpoints that brands must leverage and master to reach empowered customers where they shop,” said Julie Marobella, Exec. VP of Product, Salsify. “Winning on the digital shelf requires managing and distributing vast amounts of information across every channel, making data modeling flexibility a critical need in every PIM. Salsify has invested millions of R&D dollars into building its enterprise PIM capabilities over the last 24 months and this leadership position validates the solution we have built. Because of our scalability and flexibility, Salsify is positioned to evolve with our customers’ needs as new digital touchpoints emerge.”

The report also noted, “Customers that we interviewed rated Salsify’s ease of use well above the market average.”
