The only real solution of its kind

I have been working on a wide range of projects with Pimcore: pure CMS, CMS+PIM, CMS+DAM, PIM+DAM, E-commerce, REST Apis, Mobile App Backend, etc. Pimcore could handle all of those without issues and was joy to use! It also made the development much faster than building everything from scratch.

Pros
It can cover almost all of the needs one could imagine in a digital transformation project (CMS, DAM, PIM, Web-2-Print, ...). But what I find really excellent is that one is not really forced into using any of these components. Pimcore makes it very easy to integrate with external services and that is something that very few other systems manage to do.

Cons
Pimcore is moving fast. That means that updates can be somewhat painful (ExtJs 3 to ExtJs 6, Zend Framework to Symfony). But I wouldn't say that they are any more painful than updates in competing products. Integration with the Symfony Framework was a very good step which will make the product that much more stable and easier to update in the future.

Mi ha permesso di utilizzare un'unica soluzione per gestire contenuti e leads, aggiornare costantemente il sito web, collaborare sui contenuti con i colleghi

Pros
La facilità di implementazione di flussi di lavoro, connettori verso prodotti di terze parti, un unico repository di tutte le informazioni di cui ho bisogno come responsabile marketing.

Cons
Non essere completamente autonoma nella configurazione della piattaforma.

Not my favourite

We currently have our main website on Pimcore, does the job but doesn't add anything great.

Pros
Does the job, you can run your website on Pimcore, update it. We have a bespoke version, which isn't ideal as then you're stuck with whoever developed your website - rather than being able to hire other developers.

Cons
It's not very easy to use, you can find your way around it but it does take a while. And as mentioned, because we have a bespoke solution that means that when we need anything changed, we are stuck with going back to the company that initially developed the website for us.

Response from Pimcore


Thank you very much for your review Rita. Pimcore is an enterprise digital experience platform (DXP). Its basic features are always enriched and highly tailored towards the individual digitization needs of its users. Especially larger companies with complex requirements value the large flexibility that this approach provides them in regards of providing a highly personalized experience to their customers.

Pimcore is built for developers and empowers them to build great digital experiences fast and easily. As a consequence Pimcore is NOT an 'out-of-the-box' software product like Wordpress.

When looking at your website I saw that you are running an outdated version of Pimcore, which is quite old already. I invite you give our latest version, Pimcore 6, a try, which makes the editing experience even more user-friendly and intuitive.

Best,
Christian (Marketing & Partner Management)

Outstanding framework for PIM/CMS/DAM/e-commerce needs

Pimcore has helped us set up very flexible and scalable PIM and CMS set up for our customers with less cost. We are able to extend the features based on the Customer's specific requirements without too much effort. Our developers love the ease with which they can extend the framework and contribute to community. Our customers are pleased with the features they get from the Product that makes their day to day tasks easy. We have been able to enable our non-IT business users to manage and control their PIM implementations with very basic training.

Pros
Pimcore is a very flexible and extendable framework combining PIM, DAM, CMS and e-commerce capabilities all in one suit. There are abundant features, so much that we still discover new ones with each implementation. The product is evolving and the Pimcore team keeps on adding new features and functionalities based on the market need. Almost all features are generic and extendible. It's easy for developers to add customized features and extend the existing features. We have done a lot of PIM and CMS implementation with various customers enabling the Business users, the Marketing teams and the IT teams, to create and publish content on the fly. We have implemented PIM solutions that give the Business owners complete control the Products data and content. We have implemented PIM with Workflow management providing Product teams to manage the Product Launch Sequences through Pimcore with complete notifications and dashboards giving Sr. management a real time view of the Products launch status

Cons
Since Pimcore is a framework and not a Product, some customizations are always required to implement customer requirements, which in other Product based software may be available out of box. But again that is something that makes it extendible and makes it possible to extend and implement any feature desired.

We work exclusively with PimCore since v3, which is to say how much we appreciate this software and just congratulate us. They are responsive and friendly. We are developing a set of bundles that allow the management of Print publications and the PimCore / Active WebToPrint solution is a great success. Their annual Inspire conference has opened up the international market to us naturally and we now have customers in Europe, USA, Africa, etc ... Many thanks to them without whom we would not have the success we have. I recommend VERY HIGHLY!

Pros
PimCore is the only open-source platform with full PIM, DAM and CMS capabilities. With our plugins, this is the only solution that allow to manage Print draf and publications, connected to InDesign or exporting directly to PDF HD CMYK, in addition to native features. With its GPL license, everything is accessible and it is easy to develop plugins, overload existing functions, modify the interface, etc ... A MUST HAVE

Cons
To be honest, not much. Can be a more user-friendly interface but the v6 should fix that
