Product Information Management in SAP
Perfion gives you Product Information Management (PIM) – 100% integrated into your SAP ERP or S/4Hana solution. With Perfion PIM, you can work directly with real-time ERP information such as prices and inventories from the same place that you manage all other types of product data.
Using the Perfion PIM system directly in SAP enables you to:
- Manage all of your product data in Perfion – descriptions, technical specifications, pictures, video materials, etc. – TOGETHER WITH transactional data from SAP, all in one place.
- Dynamically generate brochures, data sheets and other marketing materials with always-updated data in a print-ready PDF format.
- Easily export product data from Perfion and SAP to apps, websites, webshops and online portals.
Perfion is integrated into your SAP GUI or Fiori application, by embedding the Perfion Web Client, which is responsive to show data about the material you are viewing in SAP:
The advantage of 100% PIM integration in SAP
Working with Perfion directly in SAP keeps your ERP system simple and streamlined. Only transactional data is stored in your ERP system – all other data is stored in Perfion. This ensures a higher degree of standardization and fewer modifications in your ERP solution, while giving you the power to work with data from both systems at the same time.
The advantage of fewer modifications in SAP
Limiting the number of modifications in your ERP system lowers the system’s operating costs, and storing only transactional data in the ERP system improves its performance. It is also faster and easier to upgrade to new versions when you have fewer adaptations to consider.
The advantage of creating publications directly in Perfion
When dynamically creating brochures, data sheets and other publications with Perfion integrated in SAP, Perfion retrieves data from the ERP system at the very moment it is to be used. This ensures that all data in your new publication is valid and up-to-date.
You can also quickly generate catalogs, price lists and data sheets with content and prices adapted for specific customers. Perfion retrieves prices, products, customer and inventory information directly from SAP, which minimizes the risk of error.
With Perfion as a connecting link, you avoid registering a lot of irrelevant products in SAP, which further helps to keep your ERP system simple and streamlined.
