Akeneo Connectors

Akeneo PIM is an intuitive platform that radically simplifies product information management.

Would you like to import your Bynder assets into Akeneo to use them as product photos or would like that the product information from Akeneo becomes available in Bynder as well? Save yourself the time of having to enter your product information twice and sync this data by using one of the available Akeneo connectors.

Tell Me More About the Akeneo Connectors

The Akeneo connectors allow you to transfer assets from a Bynder environment to your Akeneo PIM and transfer data from Akeneo to Bynder. For the data exchange the connectors use both the Akeneo and Bynder API. Once the Bynder assets are available in Akeneo they'll be linked to the product using Akeneo's native product link rule feature

Akeneo offers different PIM solutions. Check out this page for more information about the differences between both PIM versions.

Connectors for Akeneo Enterprise

Akeneo offers two enterprise versions for their PIM.

  • Serenity (also known as SaaS version)

    This version of the connector will automatically retrieve information from the Bynder DAM and send it to the Akeneo PIM and vice versa.    

  • Flexibility (also known as PaaS version) 

    This version of the connector will automatically retrieve information from the Bynder DAM and send it to the Akeneo PIM and vice versa. This version also offers access to the Bynder Compact View.

Connector for the Akeneo Community Edition

The Akeneo Community Edition (CE) connector provides a seamless connection between Akeneo PIM CE and Bynder DAM.

With the connector enabled, all assets uploaded in Akeneo PIM CE are automatically stored in your Bynder DAM. To make sure that the assets can be managed in Bynder, the connector provides the ability to sync asset metadata in Bynder using the product data of the linked product in Akeneo PIM CE.

Another way of linking assets is the enrichment of product identifiers (SKU, ..) within Bynder in order to automatically link them to the corresponding product in Akeneo PIM CE. When editing a product in Akeneo PIM CE, asset selection can be achieved using the Compact View which provides an overview of all relevant assets in Bynder.
