Akeneo is the leading open source enterprise product information management (PIM) platform that radically improves how complex product data is managed and simplifies the distribution of that data across multiple sales channels. Over 50,000 companies currently use Akeneo Community edition and leading global brands such as Sephora, Shop.com, Carrefour, Fossil and John Deere trust Akeneo's Enterprise Edition PIM solution to scale and customize their ecommerce initiatives in order to gain productivity and offer their customers an amazing user experience. Akeneo is based in France, Germany and the United States.

Akeneo was created with the conviction that products are the most important assets of a company and that merchants were missing a tool to help them manage efficiently those assets. That’s why we created a tool designed for marketers, and flexible enough to be integrated with any 3rd party application.
Most of our users experience significant improvements in productivity by allowing them to manage more products with far fewer resources, improved conversions and reduced return rates as a result of higher quality product information. 

As Akeneo continues its fast expansion across Europe & North America, it recently secured a strategic investment from Salesforce Ventures. "We are excited to support Akeneo’s innovative PIM platform as they leverage Salesforce Commerce Cloud to deliver enhanced benefits to our joint customers", said Alex Kayyal, partner at Salesforce Ventures.
