In our latest case study, we take a closer look at the Akeneo PIM solution delivered for one of Sweden’s leading higher education institutions, the University of Gothenburg. The case study considers the information challenges the university was looking to solve and details how Vaimo’s Akeneo PIM build has transformed how the university arranges and enriches its course information.

Let’s take a closer look at the PIM and the effects it’s had on the University of Gothenburg’s internal processes and efficiencies.


The Challenge

The University of Gothenburg needed one single source of truth that would provide a comprehensive overview of its education information and related entities. But it wasn’t just a view of the information the team needed—it also needed the functionality to then enrich this data with ease.

The Solution

With the implementation of Akeneo PIM, the University of Gothenburg is now able to separate various datasets for customised publication to different channels—and more specifically, in several separate contexts within the website. The university can now spread information to its three key channels: the university’s web catalogue which consists of domestic studies, international studies and exchange courses; national portals like and international portals. With Vaimo’s help, the university moved all its information regarding education to Akeneo PIM. With a PIM in place, the University of Gothenburg is better equipped to meet the needs of today’s students and help them find the course information they’re looking for quickly and easily.
