Pros

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.
Many thanks to them without whom we would not have the success we have. I recommend VERY HIGHLY.
Our developers love the ease with which they can extend the framework and contribute to community.

Pros

Rep. is a stand-out representative and if you have the opportunity to work with her, you are lucky. Every single person we've met, from the developers to the President of inRiver's PIM, is top notch.
I like that it's creates a great tool to house all the product data that you need to bring your products to market. It's fairly easy to use and can be customization for the business that you run.
Would actually be a great option for a startup. Beneficial for workflow management as well.

Cons

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.
Additionally pimcore offers an ecommerce framework which I personally have no real experience with.
Pimcore will fail if you expect to find a complete solution for your business case right off the bat. It needs professional advise for customization an implementation.

Cons

Other annoying thing is that the Fieldsets not read only are; if someone changes the Fieldset, data can be lost (unintentionally). Too bad, inRiver is not sharing its timeline of the roadmap.
We no longer have to enter information in multiple locations, which is both redundant and leaves room for error.
So all products are visible for all companies. The new content segmentation feature should solve this, but we are desperately waiting for it for months.

Pimcore

The only real solution of its kind

Reviewed 4 years ago

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.

Vendor response

Thank you very much for this review and your kind words, Igor! As Pimcore Gold Partner and winner of the case study of the year 2018 awards, Basilicom is a trusted partner and highly recommended Pimcore implementation partner! Best, Christian - Marketing & Partner Management

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

Reviewed 5 years ago

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...

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.

Better and better

Reviewed 3 years ago

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
