Sharepoint is our preferred file-management platform, but not the only one Pimics can work with. Our customers can choose other repositories for their files too.
Pimics works best with Sharepoint, because this platform provides ample document-handling functionality and seamless integration in the Microsoft ecosystem. There are a few Sharepoint features that are extensively used by our PIM solution: document versioning and collaboration, enhanced security with secure external access, centralized administration, site consolidation.
Pimics only keeps thumbnails of files inside the Business Central database, for easy previewing by the users who work with product data. Files are stored securely in the external repository (Sharepoint or other).
