Akeneo PIM

ADEO WEB is equipped to analyse, conceptualize and develop product data centralisation tools in the context of an omni channel strategy. With the right instruments it’s more effective to push fresh content regularly, make data-driven decisions and move quicker from the idea to execution. Save your time, effort and money. We’ll show you how!

Akeneo Product Information Management system (PIM) is a tool that helps companies to centralize and harmonize all the technical and marketing information of their catalogs and products.


Centralised Management of Data  –  Akeneo brings the majority of your structured data into one place, providing a central, web-based repository for product information.

Multichannel  – Akeneo is multichannel, meaning that you can push your data to multiple destinations including your Magento online store, mobile devices, print catalogue, ERP, data feeds and bricks and mortar point of sale (POS) systems.


Akeneo was developed by a number of developers of Varien INC, the creators of Magento. Akeneo is already fully equipped to provide data exchange as well as possible between the PIM and Magento. Both platforms share the same architectural concepts which makes integration and interpolability available out of the box

PIMGento 2 is a Magento 2 extension that allows importing catalog from Akeneo CSV files into Magento. PIMGento 2 reads CSV files from Akeneo and inserts data directly in Magento 2 database.

With PIMGento 2 it is possible to import:

  • Categories
  • Families
  • Attributes
  • Options
  • Variants (configurable products)
  • Products


Akeneo has both Community and Enterprise versions. While first one is free, the other one is based on annual subscription price, depending on necessary channels. The main difference of these two – more built-in features on Enterprise version as well as more scalable architecture.
