Markets and clients

OctoPIM supports different ways to edit specific content separately. This can make sense for international companies, for example. Products may have country-specific features that need to be maintained separately.



A market usually constitutes an economic market like Germany, France, or the EU on which products are offered for sale. Meta information such as languages, currencies, and unit systems can be bundled via markets.



In OctoPIM you can create multiple clients with strictly separated user accounts. The accounts are linked to certain rights. The clients have no reciprocal insight into their data or user administration.

Separate markets

In the example on the left, a company is active on the German and Austrian markets. Separated market levels could be one possible approach here. 

The products are handled separately, as they are subject to different requirements, but can be edited by all employees. 

Languages, currencies, and unit systems can also be managed via markets.


As already mentioned above, meta information can be bundled via markets. In the screenshot on the right you can see a list of economic markets on which the products in OctoPIM are distributed, with languages, currencies, and unit systems. A market can be a region or a segment in which various products are offered in the form of one or more catalogs.

With this feature, a product range can be adapted to new markets with minimal effort. Linguistic, technical, and, in the future, legal requirements can be efficiently implemented. In addition, you can define product attributes so that they reflect market-specific values, for example the declarations on allergens in the EU.

Above a certain company size, strictly separated user accounts according to country may make more sense than separating according to market level. Here the multi-client capability feature comes into play. It allows the management of multiple clients and supports separated user accounts. Each user can generally only see their data, and does not have access to the data of other users.

Separate clients

In the case of an internationally active company such as a holding, a strict separation of clients, for example according to country, economic market, or language, can be sensible.

Every subsidiary has its own client in OctoPIM. The accounts are linked to certain rights. The clients have no reciprocal insight into their data or user administration. This means they can act independently of each other. They use different data repositories and do not overlap with the content of other clients in any way. System administrators and the management of course have full access rights.

Additional possibilities

In a company that sells both its own products and those of third parties, a corresponding client division for the two parts of the company can make sense. The prerequisite is that there are teams of employees acting independently of each other.  

In the graphic on the left, Store Piment encompasses its own brand Mode Piment, as well as the division that manages third-party products. The clients act independently of each other, but have access to both product ranges.

There are numerous scenarios for using roles and rights to suit your company.
