Benefits for your business
Boost customer engagement and revenue
Creating attractive, consistently presented catalogues with less errors helps your customers to easily find what they are looking for and purchase more from you.

Shortened production time frames mean catalogues feature products as they are released. Catalogues released ahead of price rise dates ensure new pricing is effective earlier.
Information is sourced directly from your spreadsheet, ERP database or XML file.
By using a linked data source you no longer need to manually edit content and re-proof.
Update your data automatically
Product information can be refreshed as new products are introduced.
If a product attribute or price alters you can refresh your data directly on to the page.
Create more versions
