Gardner Denver’s needs: Improve publishing workflows
Gardener Denver’s German division asked Pagination to find a solution to improve the creation of its price lists.
Before starting work with Pagination, Gardner Denver made these documents manually. The process required a lot of time and was subject to the typical errors related to any hand-made creation process. Furthermore, the creation of documents in multiple languages and currencies increased the difficulty and time needed for their creation. In fact, Gardner Denver price lists are created in 12 languages and two currencies for printing and distribution in the European market alone.
SAP integration and automatic document creation
Using Pagination, Gardner Denver exports the product information contained in its SAP management system and uploads it to Pagination’s cloud infrastructure. Documents are created automatically and are ready to print in PDF and InDesign formats.
This new workflow helps Gardner Denver to streamline the whole document creation process and reduce production time and costs.
Gardner Denver’s price lists have a complex layout with different types of tables and specific layout rules.
Pagination allowed Gardner Denver to manage the different graphic elements better while still creating the price lists in a variety of languages and currencies.
Now, working with Pagination, Gardner Denver can create high quality, fully customizable, and always up-to-date price lists. All of these capabilities are driven by great service, ease of use, and the benefits of the cloud platform, which enables users to create their documents anywhere and at any time.
