"Pimcore - Experience Manager"

What do you like best?

I used the online shop interface for a setting up online presence of a steel pipe manufacturing business and Pimcore was an adequate choice, I must say.

It has almost all the aspects integrated into it like system finders and advance search tool to help customers narrow down their search etc. But what I found different was the multi-cart system. I didn't see this function in any other online interface provider and it was particularly suited for our industry. Being in Steel Pipe manufacturing and selling business we had a consumer base in several countries and customers would want different products such as A53 pipe , OCTG products or A500 tubing. All products have different duties and import criteria so multi-cart system really helped us and our customers to maintain separate records for their transactions.

What do you dislike?

While checkout process was smooth for most customers but data collection workflow after order placement could be a little bit better.

Also they could work a little more on customization. It's a great tool and I could set up the outlook as I wanted but I felt we could do with a little more freedom and options to change the look and feel of the shop.

Recommendations to others considering the product

- If you are a newbie in E-commerce and looking for a software to start with...I think Primcore is one of the best solutions out there...It's cost effective and user friendly.

I never had a bad experience with their customer service and also our overseas clients never complained of any security or fraud issues which are unfortunately common with a lot of online tools. It is very secure and you have complete control over your shop.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Well, We set up our first online store and it was more of a learning experience for us as we never had significant online presence before. Our revenues were boosted by 6.3% in the first quarter and 10% of the total sales in year 2016 came from our E-commerce shop. I believe Pimcore helped us navigate the online business world.

What E-Commerce Platforms solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Outstanding framework for Digital Commerce"

What do you like best?

Pimcore is an outstanding framework for Digital Commerce. It combines content and e-commerce in a way, it’s been demanded for years, but has never actually been implemented in any framework or platform. Further, pimcore offers the functionality of a Content Management, - a Digital Asset Management (DAM), - and a Product Information Management system. In addition, pimcore provides a high-performance e-commerce framework to its partner agencies, in order to realize more ambitious Digital Commerce projects.

At first glance, the administrative backend gives the impression of pimcore to be a complete web application rather than being a framework. However, at second glance you will see, that the initially given functionality is generic. Pimcore processes any content, data and asset. Pimcore agencies will further implement the specific functionality with their clients. Pimcore is an advanced platform for innovative projects, as the recent Shop Usability Award shows. Blackbit won, with an e-commerce platform on pimcore basis, the award for "innovativster Online-Shop 2016" (most innovative Online-Shop 2016).

Hence, pimcore isn´t just innovative it is disruptive. Pimcore questions the business model of agencies, continuously taking over diligence work, that because of its technical complexity allegedly cannot be realized on client-side. Pimcore disenchants technology and serves its users the understanding of technology, with the help of an intuitive, even partially self-explanatory user interface. And this understanding of technology and its possibilities is, because of the progressing digitalization, urgently needed in those companies. Non-sustainable are systems, that keep their users on a certain distance to the technology and therefore prevent them, to discover new, creative and to their requirements adapted alternative uses.

What do you dislike?

The generic approach of pimcore as a framework means to re-implement many features that you will often find in other applications. On the other hand, this means to re-evaluate things you have already developed in the past and gives you an opportunity to continuously improve.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consult an experienced pimcore partner to assist you in your implementation process. More often than not, it's not about technical complexity but rather defining the right goals and find the best approach to achieve your goals using pimcore.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Pimcore enables our customers to manage their data in a central location, aggregate data from various sources and transform it for different output channels and use cases. This means achieving business goals has become faster, easier and cheaper for our customers.

"Pimcore is the perfect foundation for setting up a CMS/DAM and/or PIM"

What do you like best?

Looking at the Pimcore feature set, one might get the impression that it tries to be too many things to excel in any - but it does. The key is Pimcore having just the right interfaces. It is not an "i can do anything but hard to adapt" system: any developer will actually enjoy implementing customer specific solutions.

What do you dislike?

Being a very flexible framework solution, pimcore generates code (such as ORM) in order to maintain systems performance - which is a good thing. On the other hand, this results in some file system dependencies making cloud-scale deployment a challenge. As this is a known issue, there are of course solutions, too.

Plese note: You are going to need some implementation support to get the maximum out of Pimcore - similar to all PIM solutions on the market.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You should seek assistance of a Pimcore implementation partner for getting the best out of the system.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We implement about 100 Pimcore setups a year. These range from simple marketing sites, raffles to full fledged integrated CMS/DAM/PIM solutions with multi-channel marketing capabilities, E-commerce and Web2Print integrations.

"Outstanding SOFTWARE"

What do you like best?

Being a very flexible framework solution pimcore is packed full of functionality, which makes web application development from CMS to CRM lightning fast! But what strikes me the most about this constantly evolving platform is that every feature is generic enough to extend, with hardly any compromises.

What do you dislike?

If one want to be picky, maybe the CMS part can be improved significantly but overall is great.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend finding a pimcore solution partner that specialises in your business use case.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have used Pimcore Object feature for a client where data is fetched ,saved and updated through API for a frontend which is in different Technology

"There's so much functionality, after 5 years I'm still discovering"

What do you like best?

The pimcore framework is packed full of functionality, which makes web application development from CMS to CRM lightning fast! But what strikes me the most about this constantly evolving platform is that every feature is generic enough to extend, with hardly any compromises.

What do you dislike?

In recent years many content management systems have started to jump ahead in terms of admin panel access. Although I am a fan of ExtJS I find that the licensing restrictions around this commercial platform come with some restrictions. It's great that Pimcore offers long term support as this is an enterprise ready product after all, but some of this long term support does limit future technology choices.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend finding a pimcore solution partner that specialises in your business use case.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're solving a range of problems. From data collection and information management right through to data visualisation and analytics.

We've been able to provide the majority of application support for our clients using Pimcore and have found the core team to be great to work with to help improve the platforms we create.

-- So many Out of Box functionality makes it more easy to use .
