Contentserv

PIM tool for handling product data across multiple channels

About Contentserv

Contentserv is a cloud-based product information management (PIM) solution designed to help small to medium distributors, manufacturers, and retailers import, validate, and manage product content across multiple sales channels. The system lets team members configure integrated workflows and restricts access to only relevant content and tasks through role-based permissions.

Key features of Contentserv include content syndication, digital asset management, version control, master record management, collaboration tools, data quality control, and data modeling. Businesses can automatically import product data in different formats from multiple sources, such as raw material vendors, third-party content aggregators, data pools, legacy ERP systems, and more. The solution allows users to handle product associations with digital content as per supplier, location, or brand information.

Contentserv facilitates integration with several product localization providers, which enables organizations to translate information into desired languages and identify content that requires initial translation or correction. The platform allows teams to gain insight into workflows of assets & products through data visualizations, such as the calendar view and Gantt charts.

Contentserv helps staff members create channel previews to display products from customers’ perspectives prior to publishing across both print and digital channels. The solution enables corporate entities to create hierarchies as per filter/group-by criteria, edit product content based on parent-child taxonomy, and generate relationships by classifying related products across entities.

It's a solution that can be delivered in small batches. It's maintenance is very light, Contentserv PIM works, and support is always ready to assist. It's a great experience working with Contentserv.

Pros

Great service and support from Contentserv. We're not too worried even if there are system issues sometimes.

Cons

The system should be more native mobile.

Contentserv MDM and PIM is an easy to use platform for our data like product data and asset management. Quite a lot of features due to their huge customer base which is by the way very active with user groups and active reference management. The platform is an end-to-end platform which includes a data quality tool, project management tool and even a DAM module that allows us to manage images and other digital documents as well. The performance of the system is still maximum. Great product.

Pros

We can easily onboard product information and digital assets in one platform.

Cons

It's a huge platform that can do a lot, so far we are fine with it.

Overall, we are very satisfied with the Contentserv software. But an important and mostly underestimated point is to find the right partner in integration. The right integrator is at least as important, usually even more important. With the CS-Suite, we have found the best implementation partner for us. That makes it very pleasant for us.

Pros

Contentserv has managed to equip a powerful database with smart features. The PIM system did not become a complex IT solution, which nobody can use anymore. A decisive reason for us was the user interface, which allows us to work with many colleagues in the company. The finely tuned rights management allows access for almost all complexities depths.

Cons

The purchase of the software was quite complex. The purchase model consists of many small software modules that make it impossible to find the right amount of features for you. An integrator is necessary to look through the functional kit of the CS-Suite.

Our overall experience with Contentserv was very positive - from evaluation, proof of concept, design, implementation, support - perfect execution. And then you add in the product experience (so many features and very nice UX) and you get real worth for your investment.

Pros

The PIM product is truly an amazing experience every day. We couldn’t have chosen a better one and recommend Contentserv as a very good product and inspired team with a great vision.

Cons

Can't think of what to really dislike at the moment.

Still a lot cloud-based solutions have limited functionalities. You will still be required to access an on-premise portal for more complex functions. Contentserv's cloud solution is different. You get extended capabilities you won't expect from such a lightweight solution.

Pros

We were fully cloud in such a short time.

Cons

Would like to integrate more of Contentserv's product suite soon.
