In every kind of industry, catalogs and price lists are important tools for your sales. They allow you to present your products to retailers and potential buyers. These kinds of documents must always be up-to-date and should always include your latest products and prices, using quality layouts and pictures.
A catalog or a price list must be clear and precise and provide all the information the buyer needs, but it must also be appealing in order to present your products in the best way.
Pagination developed its own API to make it easier to streamline the catalog creation process.
It is possible to create catalogs and pricelists directly from product management systems like PIMs, CRMs, ERPs, and e-commerce software.
In your downloaded zip file, in addition to the catalog template in InDesign, Word, and PDF format, you will find a spreadsheet. Filling it in with your data allows you to automatically create your document in a few seconds as both PDF and InDesign files. This is made possible by Pagination, a flexible cloud database publishing service you can also use with your own InDesign layout.
With Pagination you will able to meet some of the following requirements that are common among those who frequently manage product catalogs or price lists:
- Frequent document creation and updates
- Grouping products by type and category
- Covers, tables of contents, and chapter separators
- Rich text formatting
- Flexible data integration with in-house business applications
