TipPoint Trading, a wholesaler and importer of car parts and accessories, is the first KatanaPIM’s client in the automotive industry. For them, our partner SEMSO created the connection between Exact Online, their ERP software, and KatanaPIM. Thanks to this integration, they can now sell all their products professionally on all their sales channels.
TipPoint sells products on more than 10 different sales channels. With their pricing & stock data centralized and easily manageable inside Exact software, they soon figured out that they couldn’t enrich products with images, texts and attributes in multiple languages with only an ERP tool. It was becoming very difficult and time-consuming for the team to manage the product information and keep it updated and enriched on all platforms.
It was soon clear that TipPoint Trading was in need of a PIM solution to solve the issues and delays coming from the mismanagement of product information. After choosing KatanaPIM, the results came up immediately:
We used to be - and I am not exaggerating - months busy updating our article file on all our sales channels. Now, when our purchasing manager creates an article in Exact Online, this is automatically entered in KatanaPIM within 5 minutes. From there, we enrich the product with the necessary photos, texts and other information. When it’s complete, within a few minutes it is automatically available on all our sales channels.
Instead of months, we can now be live within 30 minutes!

Semso, specialists in links and integrations, realized the connection between Exact Online and KatanaPIM. Thanks to this integration, KatanaPIM works as the middleware tool between the ERP and the sales channel, making sure that all stock levels, pricing and complete information are quickly available and always synchronized internally, and all over the sales channels.
Thanks to our partnerships with KatanaPIM and Exact Online, we have been able to use a standard link. TipPoint Trading did not require a huge investment to get the link operational. In addition, we ensure that TipPoint Trading no longer has to worry about the maintenance of this link.
We are happy to hear that we were allowed to optimize the processes for TipPoint Trading together with KatanaPIM. The results are impressive. We want to relieve our customers of all the technical care related to coupling and it seems that we have amply succeeded. So everyone is happy!
