Nottingham, November 15, 2010 - CSI is appointed the new value added reseller and implementation partner for Heiler Software in the United Kingdom. The relationship expands Heiler’s international network into the UK market for its world class Enterprise Product Information Management (PIM) solutions. CSI is one of the leading multi channel solution providers in the United Kingdom.
With the Enterprise PIM solution from Heiler, retailers, distributors and manufacturers can establish and manage large product ranges. The solution capability covers supplier on-boarding, new product introduction and product lifecycle management across all business channels. The solution dramatically reduces the time taken to bring new products to market and the resource required to manage products during their lifecycle explains Chris Booker, Business Development Director at CSI. We regularly experience clients struggling with their e-commerce systems with information being distributed across an organisation. Typically this information is held in core business systems such as ERP and Buying and Merchandising, Excel spreadsheets, as well media/images held on file systems. Heilers’ solution provides a single repository to feed web, call centre, line of business and print catalogues whilst managing its release through work flow and approval processes.

For the third time in a row, Heiler has been rated by Gartner as one of the top ten leading MDM and PIM suppliers. "A central PIM solution considerably speeds up product launch times in the e-commerce sector and is the base for successful multi channel commerce", says Frank Schmidt, Member of the Board at Heiler Software. "With CSI, our UK customers will have a leader and a proven, reliable partner in the Multi Channel and Product Information Management marketplace", explains Schmidt happily. The Heiler solution provides major e-commerce systems with up-to-date product data. For example, the latest version of the Heiler Product Manager has a standardized interface for IBM WebSphere Commerce as well as other leading e-commerce platforms.
