Vaimo, a global commerce solutions provider driving digital commerce success to many well-known B2B and B2C businesses, is pleased to announce a partnership with leading PIM provider Akeneo. Akeneo’s PIM system is designed with the ultimate aim of providing efficient answers to retailers’ multichannel needs. This partnership cements Vaimo’s global PIM offerings and brings further valuable experience and know-how which it can leverage to provide transformational results for its clients around the world.

Recognising the importance of PIM in supporting multi-channel digital solutions for its clients, Vaimo acquired Notitium in September 2017, a partner of Akeneo with a strong competency in implementing solutions to manage product information. This acquisition, along with the new Vaimo/Akeneo partnership, forms the foundation of Vaimo’s dedicated PIM business unit which sits under its wider offering of eCommerce services. Vaimo provides a multi-service approach, covering strategy, design and technology to drive the digital success of businesses in both the B2B and B2C arenas.

“Akeneo PIM fits very well in the Commerce solutions we provide. Akeneo’s similarities with Magento, both technical and functional, create efficiency regarding integrations and cost of ownership,” says Magnus Bengtsson, Head of PIM department at Vaimo.

Vaimo has always been focused on and is deeply committed to the open source community having earned their status as a Magento Global Elite solution partner. Vaimo delivers Akeneo as their open source PIM solution, which is already tightly integrated with Magento.

“We are very excited to be partnering with Vaimo as they have the skills, experience, and competency to implement multi-channel solutions for clients who are looking for a better way to manage product information,” says Scott Dahlgren, VP Global Channel Development at Akeneo. “Vaimo is known and recognized as a leader in helping companies implement their digital commerce strategies, so establishing a partnership with them in Scandinavia and the other countries where Vaimo is present is very exciting.”
