Dynamic Product Configuration & Pricing Engine
PIM for a highly customized, highly configurable, non-SKU based product set.
JBS architected and built a full service Product Information Manager (PIM) for a client with a highly customized, highly configurable, non-SKU based product set. JBS extended Virto's catalog functionality by adding support for dynamic configuration of products and their options, dynamic pricing of product and options, and complex pricing and visibility rules, all of which can be applied at the product, option or option choice value level. In addition to extending the functionality, a Simulation service was also developed to allow users to build a product within the PIM following all the configuration rules defined within the PIM. This Simulation service is called by internal users as configurations are entered and verified. It is also called by a public facing e-commerce site as customers build products. This solution has given our client unprecedented control over configuring, testing, and selling a complex custom product set.
