We are pleased to announce that our Oporteo PIM system has been shortlisted at this year’s UK Ecommerce AwardsThis annual event, hosted by Don’t Panic, celebrates the very best in ecommerce and online retailing from across the UK.

Oporteo PIM has been shortlisted for the ‘UK Ecommerce Software or Extension of the Year’ award. We’re delighted it has been recognised as a new and unique solution in the ecommerce market.

Launched in October 2018, Oporteo PIM is a Product Information Management (PIM) system for Wholesalers and retailers. It is an extension of BCP’s Oporteo Ecommerce Platform and consolidates a wide range of product data into a central hub. It is designed to help businesses record the increasing amount of information that they need to collate, display and meet regulations.

Andy Pratt, Business Development for Oporteo, said: “The growth in product information is a big problem because most back-office systems cannot hold all the attributes, images and descriptions businesses now need to comply with regulations and meet customer demands.”

BCP discovered that for many of their clients this results in proliferation of spreadsheets, databases and filing systems to work around the problem. They set about to develop Oporteo PIM to overcome these problems.

Speaking about the shortlist, Andy said “Oporteo PIM represents BCP’s continued investment and commitment to helping businesses overcome the challenges of digital transformation. We are proud that Oporteo PIM has been shortlisted amongst the best of ecommerce and online retailing.”
