Akeneo Enterprise Features – Reference Entities

The Reference Entities feature is only available on the Akeneo Enterprise Edition and is all about delivering better product experiences.

According to Akeneo, Reference Entities helps to provide better product experiences by managing related entity information alongside your products to create more complete product page.

What is a reference entity?

A reference entity lets you create and enrich common information that are shared and related to products. Reference entities have their own attributes and life cycle which can be linked to products or other reference entities. This allows for enrichment of common data related to products with rich content such as images and text.
