Automatic layout using intelligent templates

With InDesign Automation you can save a lot of time and costs on DTP work and shorten the turnaround times for publications.


You can now take even more advantage of automated formatting! It is no longer necessary to find the correct images, sizes and codes for every item in your product list (a time consuming, error-prone process, as a designer can easily overlook something). The EasyCatalog paginator server module is part of our content orchestration platform “Publication Organizer”. 

With PO you can compile your own brochures, catalogs and price lists and POS material without the intervention of a designer. You can upload an Excel with structured data, choose a template and format pages automatically. PO can also be directly integrated with your PIM system so that Excel is superfluous
