inRiver launches US PIMpoint event – helping drive more revenue for eCommerce and Marketing teams
Chicago (June 27, 2018) –inRiver the leading provider of SaaS-based product information management (PIM) solutions today announced the date of the first US PIMpoint Summit, the largest event in the world focused on the growing international product information management market to be held in Chicago, October 4, 2018.
If you work in digital marketing or ecommerce, the rise of the PIM is no surprise, as the world and buyers have become omnichannel. Top brands, retailers, and distributors need to effectively and efficiently create, publish, and optimize product information consistently to drive more revenue. Faster time to market for distribution and syndication across all channels can only be accomplished through a centralized solution. If not, the customer experience is poor and engagement suffers. The adoption of PIM solutions is reaching a critical mass in the market.
“The inRiver community is one of the best and most vibrant in the industry,” said Charles Dejardins, Partner, Absolunet. “PIMpoint offers an opportunity to elevate the PIM market, increase learning and global networking with the people driving revenue for their organizations.”
“I’m looking forward to my first PIMpoint event, sharing how to empower Zombie Loyalists with the inRiver community and ultimately, inspire a new way of thinking to drive better results in marketing, sales and across the organization,” said Peter Shankman, author and keynote speaker.
Key highlights of PIMpoint America include:

“We are thrilled to bring together customers, partners and thought-leaders in the industry to share best practices and to extend our extensive community,” said Thor Johnson, CEO, inRiver. “PIMpoint has become the premium global omnichannel marketing event, and now we are raising the bar bringing it to North America.”
