How BeA Fasteners improved the creation of their price lists!Date:30 maj 2022Author: Valerio Morossi
What was the publishing process of the customer before contacting Pagination?
BeA Fasteners USA, Inc., the US branch, contacted Pagination to create their price lists faster and make them more professional. When they contacted us, in fact, the price lists were formatted with Excel and saved in PDF. The need was to look for a tool that would allow them to create price lists with different prices quickly, without however making compromises related to the layout of the document.
How did Pagination help BeA Fasteners?
BeA Fasteners initially downloaded the data file of one of our two Professional plan templates and filled it in with its products, also adding additional fields to enter all necessary attributes. BeA sent us this file and we modified it by adjusting the existing fields and adding those missing but necessary for the automatic creation of the price list. They also asked us to design an InDesign template that would meet his product display needs. During the design phase, one of our PMs suggested the implementation of a new product layout that would allow a better view of the products (image with larger dimensions).
The price list that they now create independently with Pagination has a dynamic cover, ie there is a field in the data file that allows you to choose the title and subtitle of the document. It also includes an automatic TOC and two product layouts (one with a small image and one with a larger image). Bea can also choose directly from the data file when a product that is part of a category is laid out in a new page (page break feature). Additional features are the ability to change the field header directly from the data file (Label Attribute Feature), to choose when to write in bold using HTML tags (directly from the data file), to change a logo on the page, and to insert information in the footer (dynamic footers). Now BeA Fasteners creates its price lists for the web and for print in just a few minutes by simply uploading the product photos and data to the Pagination cloud!
