Akeneo PIM 5.0 is now available in both Enterprise and Community Editions!
This major update to the Akeneo PIM platform brings about some powerful improvements to help give your ecommerce experience a boost. Some of our favourites include:
- The Rules Builder – a brand new interface within the PIM where you can create and manage rules to enhance product enrichment. You can take advantage of these new actions to speed up the enrichment process. This includes ‘concatenate’ that can be set-up to help automatically create content for titles or descriptions, a ‘calculate’ action to automatically calculate the volume of a product, and much more.
- The new Events API has been added to help synchronise data faster with 3rd party applications. The REST API is not left out, Akeneo has added new endpoints and improved existing ones to help reduce the amount of data to process and the size of the API call responses.
- A new unit and measurement family feature improves measurement data management and enables Akeneo PIM customers to easily create their own unit and measurement families directly in the user interface.
- Import and Export capabilities have been enhanced with the addition of a stop button, progress bar as well as new export profiles for assets and reference entities. Also, product exports have been improved so that users can choose to export attribute labels instead of attribute codes.
These are just several of the new updates in Akeneo 5.0 that are going to help significantly improve productivity and make your life easier. Head over to Akeneo’s recent 5.0 blog post to learn more about the update and new features.
