New-look Proplanet opens UK office
Leading Product Information Management (PIM) provider Proplanet has opened a new office in Coventry and rebranded with an updated colour scheme and logo. A refreshed website is also in the pipeline.
These changes mark the Dutch-owned company’s commitment to its British operation, which provides the EDA’s EDATA PIM platform solution and supports manufacturers, merchants, and wholesalers with ETIM classification and product data enrichment.
Proplanet is enjoying fantastic growth in the UK, with a string of new clients including VIP-Polymers Ltd, Moflash and LED Robus Group. “We’re really pleased to be helping these businesses get up to speed quickly to maximise the use of their PIM systems,” says Proplanet’s UK Business Developer, Wayne Jarvis.
“We’re also seeing a surge in enquiries around product classification compatibility. As co-creators of ETIM, the Proplanet PIM is fully compliant with ETIM, ETIM MC, Dynamic ETIM, UNSPC and GS1 to manage data in these formats.
“Our powerful PIM solutions can be scaled to suit, whether you’re starting small, growing fast or need a full enterprise solution with 1m+ SKUs and digital assets. If you’d like to know more, please get in touch to book an appointment.”
