Keystone

Keystone Overview and Comparisons

Keystone architecture utilizes:

 

    • Pimcore PIM
    • Grey Wolf Web Services for ERP Integration

Grey Wolf’s product information management (PIM) for Infor (SX and CSD) or Epicor (Prophet 21) solution is powered by Pimcore.  Pimcore is arguably the best open source solution for product information management (PIM).

 

As Pimcore is open source and improves over time in the base system, Keystone PIM solution upgrades with those changes as well.  Pimcore is developed by both Pimcore and Pimcore Community.   So enhancements, improvements and upgrades happen on a regular basis.  Keystone stays on the latest supported version of Pimcore.

 

Pimcore does not natively integrated with Altitude or your ERP solution.  Keystone enhances Pimcore by enabling those integrations.   That is how Keystone excels as a PIM solution for Infor (SX and CSD) or Epicor (Prophet 21).

 

Since Keystone is powered by Pimcore, the resources available in the community are fully utilized.  Pimcore partners and Pimcore forums are all available for Keystone by default from the Pimcore community.

 

The integration by Keystone with Prophet 21, SX and CSD supports the management of products in the ERP. The integration by Keystone with Altitude supports the management of attributes, categories and products for your eCommerce solution.  Those two integrations allow your employees (Buyers and Product Managers) to have a single source for product information.

 

Grey Wolf is integrating with your Infor or Epicor system through Grey Wolf Web Services Lite (a prerequisite for Keystone).
