With ten years of existence, EasyCatalog is the leader in layout automation. Big names, but also advertising agencies, advertisers and freelance graphic designers use it in their layout process.
For what purpose ?
The operating principle of EasyCatalog is simple: we are on an advanced and intelligent mailing base. It allows automatic layout with Adobe Indesign and Excel for example.
The data are imported from various sources : Excel, CSV, connexion ODBC, XML… You will have access to your prices, descriptions, features … directly in your layout software.
Once the data is imported, an EasyCatalog palette will be created: it is the mirror of your data directly accessible in InDesign in the form of a spreadsheet.
Once the data is in InDesign, you need to create a presentation template for the products. This is called a product template. It consists of text blocks, images, and InDesign tables. This layout template is linked via “tags” to the data palette.
It only remains to assemble this pallet of data to the product template. Manually or automatically, the products are then inserted into the pages with the right styles and formatting.
A phase of rebalancing is often necessary: management of the whites, reframing of the images, management of the particular cases … The graphic designer remains as free as before to work. The shape or styles can, of course, be modified after the assembly, the link with the source will still be preserved.
Why EasyCatalog improves the daily work of graphic designer ?
It eliminates and reduces “laborious” tasks. Copy and paste, back and replay … EasyCatalogue automates the production of your media. The graphic designer then has more time to focus on his real job: graphics.
The other advantage is to be able to ensure the integrity of your data, one way or the other. If the data is right in the database, it will be in the catalog and vice versa.
Mass integration of data in InDesign : this data can come from various sources, EasyCatalog can thus connect to a product database, integrate a CSV, an XLS or an XML flow. The data in your document is thus, of course, the same as that of your source and faults are avoided.
Reduce time and costs
An automatic layout more or less advanced according to the needs : thanks to the creation of product templates and the implementation of simple rules, the generation of catalogs, brochures, sheets … more or less complex can be achieved automatically.
