Manchester start-up Pimberly has been named in technology analyst firm Forrester’s Product Information Management (PIM) report, less than a year after launching. 

This coveted recognition of its SaaS solution follows a fruitful year of client wins and on-boarding of new recruits. Pimberly, backed by Jigsaw24, has added eight new members of staff to its IT and marketing teams since January. 

The company has also taken on 13 new clients, including Westcoast Distribution and Ellis Brigham. These successes have contributed to the firm securing more than £500k of annual contracted revenues since launch.

The report, Vendor Landscape: Product Information Management (PIM), Q3, 2017, comes from one of the most highly-regarded analysts in the technology industry. 

Pimberly, based in St James’ Tower in Manchester city centre, is the only wholly UK owned and based PIM provider named in the report. 

CEO Martin Balaam said: “This is the cherry on top of what was already a fantastic first year for us. We’re all ecstatic to be included in Forrester’s new global PIM report and this is testament to the incredible effort and commitment from everyone at Pimberly.

“The fact that we’re also the only UK owned firm to be included says a lot for the quality of our technology. Pimberly is putting Manchester at the centre of innovation when it comes to PIM technology in the UK, and our solution is now turning heads on a global scale.”

PIM software allows companies to enrich product data that can include images, video, dimension information, colour, instruction manuals and price.
