Catalog publishers need a page production solution that reduces the time and costs associated with traditional desktop publishing workflows. They also need catalogs that are up-to-date and accurate. With directPUBLISHING, a web-based solution that produces PDF files suitable for printing and posting on web sites, all of this is possible.
directPUBLISHING is designed for those who have data management systems, but require greater flexibility in creating printed materials and content-rich web pages. Working with manufacturers, distributors and retailers over many years, we recognize the needs associated with formatting complex data and image intensive pages. Our content-driven system automatically creates complex layouts from a wide variety of data sources, picture, graphic and diagram file formats.
All directPUBLISHING templates are custom designed to meet customer layout and data requirements. Templates can be used across sections within projects or across different catalogs.
Flexible data options
Our solution can accept almost any data format and file size, including, but not limited to, XML, Text, CSV and MS Access. With graphics, we accept JPEG, TIFF, PDF, PGN and GIF. For our automotive and aftermarket customers, we also support PIES and ACES. We are accustomed to working with large databases and catalogs with page counts into the thousands.
Your staff can work on catalog projects from anywhere and at anytime with our web browser-based tool. Our business model is based on an annual lease of the software and customers receive an adminstrative user with the ability to create as many publishing users as needed. directPublishing combines automation with custom touches to create a solution that is fast, convenient and intuitive. The result is a one-of-a-kind, uniquely branded product.
