Digital Assets

Digital files

Product data commonly contains media files, such as photos, videos, or audio. In Pimics you assign them to a corresponding product, create descriptions, keywords or classification for them, same as for the products themselves. Pimics publishes media files in sale or e-commerce channel of your choice.

Documents

Pimics works with various types of documents, pictures, technical drawings, symbols of dangerous substances and graphics. Pimics recognizes any type of digital file (pdf, jpg, mp4, bmp, …). Documents extend product information and the user can continue to work with them: insert into catalogue, print, publish to e-Shop channels. Like product data, files can be expanded with keywords, features and especially text. You can import an unlimited number of digital files to all tree levels. Pimics supports connecting digital files by referring to another server. Innovation to Pimics is working with audio and video files.
