Reduce costs and speed up creation of paper catalogues.
People who work on the layout usually do not care about the data themselves. The data are being prepared for them by others and they are working on the graphic output only. Graphic designers can work with drafts (pictures, text) which content can be updated later. You do not have to wait until all data is collected and checked or the prices are calculated and so on.
Because many of yours catalogues look similar, you can share their templates. You do not have to create a new template for every new catalogue.
What if you want your new catalogue to look the same as last year but with just a few new items? You can simply recalculate prices and add new items into Dynamics NAV and print the catalogue with minimal effort and costs.
With Pimics, you will be able to prepare and print catalogues very fast. There is an option to publish a seasonal or brand catalogues that include just a few items from your main catalogue with a little bit of effort. Thanks to all data are validated and also templates are ready to print, you just have to define what you want to print easily.
We have really good experiences with aforementioned products when publishing a catalogue. Anyway, if you prefer any other technology, you can connect to our Product Information Management (PIM) via ODBC, Web services or REST services (OData) and get the data to meet the goals written above.
Adobe® InDesign® and EasyCatalog
InDesign is the most used application for creating catalogues. We are using EasyCatalog add-on to Adobe InDesign. With this add-on, you can easily detect changes in data and how do they look like. If you want to know more, you can visit the product page of EasyCatalog from 65bit.
