The binomial Akeneo PIM and Magento (part 2)

13 / 01 /2020 | eCommerce News Technology

In addition to this project in the antipodes, 2019 has also left us relevant local projects. Casmar, a distributor of global solutions for security and surveillance, for example, is one of them. On the one hand, we have been working on the implementation of Akeneo PIM for the management of its product catalog. At the same time, we have created its new online store (focused on B2B) with Magento 2, which is fed by all the product information that is being generated in the PIM, in order to improve the user experience. The online store is connected to its ERP, which is Navision, to manage orders automatically and maintain stocks in all markets in which they are present (Spain, Portugal, Colombia and Chile) and their warehouses.

Another project that combines Akeneo PIM and Magento technologies has been carried out by our team for Brico Depôt, a French chain of DIY, garden and home renovation products. The first phase consisted of setting up its online store (aimed at B2B), based on the Click & Collect model, also known as online shopping and store collection. The second phase has already started and we will carry it out throughout 2020.

We have also used the Magento solution last year to carry out the evolutions of the eCommerce of the Torres, and the agri-food company Disfruta & Verdura.

Waiting for the Akeneo PIM 4.0

We have talked about the PIM of Akeneo, the French company of which ASM Web Services is a silver partner in Spain, we would like to recall a relevant fact related to this solution: the launch of version 3.2 on the market.

The main novelties that the new version brought were an improvement in the reference entities, Franklin Insights and work processes, as well as greater benefits in the performance of e-commerce and in the API. Looking ahead to next February, coinciding with the Akeneo PIM Summit 2020, the annual meeting of customers and partners that we will attend, the French company has announced that it will present in society a new version of its PIM, the Akeneo 4.0.

An even more prepared team

One of the best ways we have to evolve as a company is through training and expanding the knowledge of the team. For this reason, four ASM Web Services professionals obtained official certifications in 2019. José Antonio Lópezfunctional & technical consultant, functional & technical consultant, has achieved the Akeneo Certified Developer. For his part, Rodrigo País Garay, eCommerce functional consultant, obtained the Magento 2 Solution Specialist certification.Ismael Felipa, FrontEnd web developer, obtained the M2 Front End Developer certification for Magento 2. And finally Dani PalacioseCommerce solutions developer,eCommerce solutions developer, became the first Spanish developer to obtain the certification for M2 JavaScript Developer from Magento.

ASMWS presence in León is consolidated

We end this summary of the year by looking even further back. If we jump back in time to 2018, we ended that year with the announcement of our new offices in León, located in the Center for Technology-Based Companies (CEBT), very close to the popular MUSAC, the Museum of Contemporary Art of Castilla y León.

After 365 days of flight, the project headed by Jesús Martínez has been fully consolidated and has allowed us to explore new business avenues in that Spanish region.
