Details "Automated catalogue generation (third party module:)"

Achieving fast and consistent product communication in all different media is becoming a greater challenge. Catalogues are continuously more customized and produced in smaller editions. Database publishing provides a solution to meet these requirements.
 

Challenges and market requirements

Due to increasing globalization and competitive pressures, the demands on efficient product communications processes in the company are rising. Achieving fast and consistent product communication in all different media is becoming a greater challenge.
Serving new market segments (multitude of languages, formation of product range)

 

  • Shorter product life circles
  • Individually serve customer segments
  • Catalogues are continuously more customized and produced in smaller editions

Method of resolution: Database publishing

To meet these high requirements we provide high performance software. This makes it possible to keep data centralised in one location and provide it to all the different output media. Automated catalogue generation means being able to export the product data from the central database (cross-media database) into a desktop publishing tool (InDesign or Quark Xpress) for the printed catalogue simply by pushing a button. The generated DTP document can be manually reworked from the pre-press.
