Akeneo unveils AI product library along with host of new updates to its PIM solutions

Akeneo, a provider of Product Information Management (PIM) solutions for corporate brands and retailers, is releasing Akeneo PIM Version 3.0 and introducing its new AI-based product library, Franklin.

The new Franklin solution brings machine learning-enabled product data intelligence capabilities to Akeneo’s product experience management suite. It automates the process of product information curation and enrichment, addressing a main pain point for most retailers and brands.

Franklin’s subscription-based library of 50 million products offers best-of-breed technical product information and machine learning-based insights with scoring to help craft compelling product experiences.

This capability increases the efficiency of catalog managers, reduces time-to-market, and empowers merchants with data-driven insights that ensure the accuracy, comprehensiveness, and effectiveness of the product data generated, according to Akeneo.

Ask Franklin, a new API-based offering, is a stand-alone product that solves costly challenges associated with gathering, organizing, and managing technical product information.

It is Akeneo’s first product built on top of the Frankin library. The new product provides enterprises with simple and comprehensive access to the most up-to-date publicly available technical product information for product catalogs.

Franklin’s product data intelligence capabilities are integrated into Akeneo PIM 3.0 Enterprise Edition as Franklin Insights, which automatically maps product attribute entries from the Franklin library to the PIM catalog.

A new Reference Entity feature allows users to natively create and enrich common information shared among products, such as designers, brands, materials, country origins, and care instructions.

Also, version 3.0 introduces support for Single Sign On, using a SAML-based authentication system that allows managers to handle all user permissions in a centralized place. Single Sign On also enables individual users to switch from one application to another without having to re-enter their login credentials.
