You want to automatically create catalogs, data sheets or other complex print materials butInDesign or QuarkXpress is too complex and inflexible for your needs ? If your catalog production workflow is now too expensive and too time consuming and you cannot create personalized documents or excerpts on the fly then Speedata is the right choice for you.
Speedata Publisher can create complex catalogs, data sheets and other marketing material using design rules. In contrast to template based system you are free to define special cases. In the design rules you exactly describe how the various content on a page should be aligned and how tables should be formatted and images, logos and texts placed.
You do not need any layout software to work with the Speedata publisher. Only the data and the design rules need to be present.
Especially medium sized companies face the challenge that their customers want personalized catalogs with their individual prices. Or that price lists and product signs in different countries should have a consistent quality.

And how can we help you?
We offer several extensions for the Speedata Publisher, for instance our web portal that is able to retrieve data from various sources, normalize the content and create the necessary XML files for the Speedata Publisher automatically. You can send a simple http request from your existing customer portal to our webservice interface – we interpret the parameters and create and send the necessary PDF back to your solution.
If you do not use a product information management solution we can also use a digital asset management system like Picturepark or celum as data source. While we create the PDF document we will access all necessary information from the DAM system like product information from infofields and stream image data directly into the PDF. So there is no export of image data into a file system necessary. Depending on the scope of the publication the time to create the PDF is very quick so the end user only notices a small delay while waiting for the document.
