We are proud to announce that Andy Smart, our Lead Akeneo Engineer, has recently passed his Akeneo implementation specialist exam after much hard work and determination. Congratulations, Andy!

What is an Akeneo implementation specialist?

The Akeneo certification recognises people in the Akeneo community that have demonstrated strong competency and expertise with Akeneo PIM. Once certified, an Akeneo implementation specialist is able to make best practice recommendations to allow clients to create superior product experiences online.

It also means you can find us on their Solution partners list!

The exam tests candidates on their understanding of Akeneo, both Community Edition and Enterprise Edition, to provide clients with the best recommendations regarding:

  • Products offered by Akeneo, such as AkeneoPIM, Akeneo Onboarder and Ask Franklin
  • Catalogue and product structures
  • Import and export workflows
  • Team organisation around product information enrichment

The 2 hour exam consists of 50 multiple choice questions and 2 case studies – 1 audit-like case study and the other a baseline to structure a catalogue and design enrichment workflow/organisation.

The certification is not just a piece of paper or a digital badge on a website, it is assurance of our expertise and credibility in website development.
