PIM enables merchants to build a centralized source of product and vendor information. Data can be imported from different sources such as databases or flat files. Item descriptions can be enhanced, validated and refined with business rules and then distributed externally to various channels.
Copilot is the primary interface for working with fabric applications. You will need an active account, including an account ID, to access Copilot. Contact your Copilot Admin or Customer Success representative to obtain these credentials.
Before any items are entered or imported, PIM must be configured to classify and categorize your products. The first step is to make an attributes list to define the product characteristics. The second step is to create a hierarchy to organize each product in the catalog.
To launch PIM, login to your Copilot account and select PIM from the top menu bar on the Home page.
PIM is divided into 5 separate sections and related subsections accessible from the left menu
Catalog - view list of all goods and services and combine into groups sold together
Attributes - declare and assign properties for each record in PIM
Hierarchies - group items together into multiple assortments
Vendors - enter and maintain all your vendor information
Settings - configure the properties available to assign each record
