PIM is the business abbreviation that can be interpreted in several possible ways. If letters "IM" in this abbreviation mean "information management" letter "P" is more enigmatic, because it has several meanings and most common of them are "project", "process", "product" and "personal". Let's consider main meanings of PIM systems:

  • Personal information management - Usually, when software vendors call their products PIM systems they imply "personal information management" - software that is used to handle contacts and appointments of individual users. There are also collaborative team PIM software products that can be used by group of users in order to share PIM. In this case PIM synchronization (PIM sync) is arranged via special server. Team PIM products can be referred to business PIM systems.
