Ready. Steady. Go.

Agility Multichannel was founded by these three in 2011. But Agility® PIM software has been around for more than ten years. And the company – previously as Pindar – has been developing, implementing, integrating and supporting product and content management and marketing solutions for over two decades. Richard and Graham have been a part of it since the beginning.

To get things started on this new blog, let’s begin with some essential background. Where. Who. What.

Agility Multichannel was founded by these three in 2011. But Agility® PIM software has been around for more than ten years. And the company – previously as Pindar – has been developing, implementing, integrating and supporting product and content management and marketing solutions for over two decades. Richard and Graham have been a part of it since the beginning. All together, our developers and support team have roughly a thousand man/woman years of experience. We provide some related services too. We have many customers, all over the world, and we have numerous integration and technology partners in key regions and sectors. Each year we invite everyone to gather together at user group meetings and workshops that we host in Europe and North America. They’re a great exchange of insights and ideas that we enjoy and learn a lot from.

On our website you’ll find several use cases and much more information about us and our software and about PIM and MDM for product data, in broad strokes and fine detail. From time to time we’ll be delivering some specialised content here on this blog. In the meantime, here are a few of our guiding principles and some of what we think are Agility’s superior features: We believe that in today’s multichannel marketplace, the core of trust between you and your customer lies in your product information – your “record of truth.” And we believe that trust is an asset that can’t be overvalued. Agility drives multichannel commerce, from the initial base SKU data aggregation – from suppliers, portals, spreadsheets… – through the distribution of product information via marketing channels, to sales analysis. It tightly integrates with other enterprise systems. So data can reside in Agility or it can simply be linked there, from all sources; viewed, edited and enriched for internal use or for flawlessly consistent, multidimensional, totally trustworthy promotions and communications, through all channels and touch points, in every language and region. We’re an independent company, so our software comes with no strings (or stacks) attached. No need to scrap and replace the whole infrastructure. We’ve already said it but it bears repeating: your existing systems – for instance, your ecommerce platform – will work great with Agility. We’re here to help you leverage – not forfeit – that investment. We’re dedicated to painless implementation and expeditious ROI. Our experience doing this over decades gives us a big advantage here. We’ve learned how to get it right the first time. We’re equally dedicated to giving each individual user an elegant interface that is as simple as can be – well tailored and easy on the eye. Our long experience listening to the people who use Agility day in and day out has taught us to put this right at the top of our priorities. The continuous, collaborative work we do with any one of our customers to enhance our software is to the benefit of all. They range from fast-growth and medium-sized to Fortune 500. They have 2-2000 users; manage a single language or 40+; have 800 or millions of SKUs; access our system from a single site or from multiple locations around the world. But all of them are product-based and marketing-focused, and our PIM is an integral part of their MDM infrastructure and winning multichannel commerce strategy. We’re right there at the core, where that trust resides, and we consider it an honored position. Thanks for reading. We hope you’ll visit here again soon. You can also find us on Linkedin, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Youtube, Slideshare, Vimeo, you name it. And don’t forget the phone. We also make house calls.
