With fabrics "API-centric" approach, their headless architecture goes hand in hand with GNC's strategic omni-channel architecture methodology.

A Product Information Management (PIM) system enables merchants to optimize the creation, maintenance, and publishing of product information to customers and go-to-market channels.
According to Gartner’s definition of PIM, it can “(a) Provide product, commerce and marketing teams with the ability to create and maintain an approved shareable version of rich product content. PIM makes available a single, trusted source of product information for the purposes of multichannel commerce and data exchange. B2C organizations across multiple vertical markets and product categories can benefit from the introduction of a PIM. Business benefits including faster time to market, improved data quality, reduced costs, and enhanced customer experiences are attainable. Support complex use cases, including product data syndication (PDS), PXM, product analytics, and the contextualization of product data for brands, markets, and channels.”
With fabric PIM you can onboard products, manage categories, and publish your catalog. Onboarding products include collecting data from multiple sources (ERP, PLM, and Spreadsheets) and importing data via XLSX, CSV, or APIs. Managing categories means defining your merchandising categories such as product families, bestsellers, andd holiday collection, governing data quality, and enriching the data to make it storefront-ready. Finally, publishing your catalog includes connecting fabric PIM to syndication software such as Feedonomics to distribute the product information on all your digital storefronts.
The pre-requisite to migrating the product data from another system for the first time is to configure PIM to your business needs. This includes creating, mapping and grouping attributes, and creating a primary hierarchy. Once this initial configuration is ready, you are all set to start entering product information manually or bulk upload via XLSX, CSV, or APIs. Learn more about quick starting fabric PIM.
