Editors' Review by the Product Information Management (PIM) Software Review Team
OneTimePIM is a powerful software solution designed to help simplify the otherwise complicated product information management process for manufacturers, retailers and wholesalers that market complex products like electronic gadgets, mechanical tools and equipment, etc.
The cloud-based software solution gives businesses the ability to collect, organize, manage, edit, distribute, import and export intricate product information to resellers, wholesalers, sales websites, catalogs, data sheets and more. All of this process using only a single dedicated platform. OneTimePIM makes the entire process of distributing or sharing product information a lot easier and more efficient, as once the entire product data is uploaded onto the platform, the user can easily share it across multiple channels with just a single click of a button.
Any necessary edits or updates to the product information can be performed through the centralized product information management (PIM) channel, making the process way easier. Due to OneTimePIM’s intuitive user-interface, most users can easily operate and navigate through the solution with no problem, even those who are less tech-savvy. Businesses can effectively improve their product details without wasting time or effort and spot inaccuracies or inconsistencies with the spreadsheet view feature, designed specifically to look and behave just like Microsoft Excel.
Also, the software enables users to effortlessly create custom categories and attributes for specific items, set schedules for automated data exports and to disseminate product information through an unlimited number of product channels and/or media.

The function transforms raw or discombobulated information into easily digestible data, in PDF format.
