There is no need to maintain product information in duplicate in order to create a catalog. Does your administrative system already contain all product information? Then you can generate a complete catalog directly from your ERP, fully automated and with a professional design.
With the help of the Guidance publishing techniques, you can format your entire catalog from one source: Your ERP system. From your ERP (such as SAP, Exact, Unit4, Microsoft Dynamics, Afas.), you can create an export of your entire product range that is directly converted into a fully formatted catalog by using the Guidance software Catalogger.
This means the information from your ERP does not need to be maintained in duplicate or entered twice, which will save you lots of time and effort.
The Guidance software Catalogger is used to automatically create a layout for your catalog. Thanks to Catalogger, the product information from your ERP system (item numbers, descriptions, technical info, prices, but also images and drawings) are directly converted into a fully formatted catalog.
The layout of the catalog is fully adapted to your corporate style and wishes. Use of colors, font, logos, page layout, placement of images, tables, and any further decoration of your publication is established in a layout design in advance. This happens in the professional layout package Adobe InDesign.
The information from your ERP is fully automatically placed in this Adobe InDesign document by using the Catalogger software. As soon as Catalogger is done generating, you have a fully formatted catalog, including table of contents and index.
You can now save your catalog as a PDF document and deliver it to the printer or place it on your website as a digital version. Should you want to complement your catalog with more information such as ambient images, advertisements or a foreword, you can do so in the InDesign document.
Do you only have part of your product information in your ERP system? Then you can make additional use of the Catalogger PIM system: a database in which you can place all additional information in a structured way, and then publish it immediately. Of course, the information from your ERP is automatically imported here.
Would you like a catalog but are you dreading the work? Then make smart use of your ERP system and the catalogger software, which will make publishing a catalog much easier.
