4 Catalog Specialties Using priint:suite
1 Software: Solutions from practice
The catalog requirements of our customers who use priint:suite are diverse.
Let's take a look into four different catalog projects providing an overview of the diverse solutions that have been realized with the priint:suite database publishing solution.
At the start of the project, Pulsiva annually produced 9 primary and pullout catalogs, each in 9 distinct languages. One of the core tasks was regular price updates of about 5,000 items, resulting in a tremendous annual output of pages.
During the initial phase, placeholders were created in Adobe InDesign with the priint:comet InDesign plug-in and linked to the content system. In phase II, the introduction of visual planning with the priint:suite Layout Briefing module enabled the ability to pre-plan the pages in the predefined layout.
WAGO succeeds in creating personalized catalogs and target group catalogs effortlessly and at the push of a button. The hierarchical structure of their publications is not based on structures defined in the PIM system, but rather on facets. This means that the user can filter out, compile, prepare and render the product data from any perspective.
ZIEGLER Metallbearbeitung GmbH
ZIEGLER has relied on the InDesign plug-in priint:comet for years. The structured data originates from the three connected systems (ERP, PIM, DAM) and is placed in the layout created in InDesign via the priint:suite. This enables a high degree of individualization in the creation of publications. With the implementation of the priint:suite, Ziegler was able to take catalog production to an entirely new level. By working with WERK II, the company was able to meet its needs for an appealing, customer-oriented, scalable, and future-proof print solution.
In the case of igus, one of their most notable features are the complexity of its tables throughout their publications. Some tables are displayed on double pages and are placed on more than 60 individual pages. In many cases, the published tables often have several special features within a table, such as designated grouping lines. By separating layout and content, igus has succeeded in achieving a degree of automation between 80% - 95% at the push of a button, allowing for catalogs to now be published and available on the market in the desired form and language in a fraction of the time.
