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

2017-05-19

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

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

But again that is something that makes it extendible and makes it possible to extend and implement any feature desired.

Very Flexible and Easy To Use for PIM, DAM and General purpose usage

2017-05-05

-- Easy to use and learn -- Pimcore is a very good product for PIM, DAM and web content management. -- Can do almost everything which a MVC based framework does. -- DB Read and write inbuilt separation in configuration -- Library for Redis and CDN usage -- Good Documentation

Pros

-- Thin learning Curve for Developer -- Out of Box Functionality allows non Technical to manage the Admin -- Easy to manage Admin sections -- Redis Support -- Easy Customization -- API Support -- Supports the latest version of PHP -- Usage of Ext JS makes it more flexible -- Its flexible architecture offers you an effective way to arrange your data models and define where its information is published

Cons

-- Need to code for frontend -- E commerce Plug-in in not available for all. -- I am able to meet my all business need for my client till now. So do not find anything as cons for it

Better and better

2019-08-08

We are developing a set of bundles that allow the management of Print publications and the PimCore / Active WebToPrint solution is a great success.

Pros

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.

Cons

Can be a more user-friendly interface but the v6 should fix that

Innovative Digital Commerce Framework connects Content and Commerce

2016-09-27

Further, pimcore offers the functionality of a Content Management, - a Digital Asset Management (DAM), - and a Product Information Management system.

Pros

It is not only open source in terms of the license but by concept. It simplifies technology and enables the customer to participate in the digital revolution.

Cons

Pimcore will fail if you expect to find a complete solution for your business case right off the bat.

PIM, DAM and CMS in one solution

2016-09-26

Pimcore provides sophisticated data management for PIM/MDM, fully integrated digital asset manamagent (DAM/MAM) and the most powerful content management engine (CMS) for publishing data.

Pros

It combines PIM, DAM and CMS in one solution.

Cons

A market place for extensions will accelerate the collaboration within the partner network even more.

The only real solution of its kind

2018-09-16

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.

Pros

Pimcore makes it very easy to integrate with external services and that is something that very few other systems manage to do.

Cons

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.

Not my favourite

2020-01-08

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.

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)
