Catalogue Production

The production of a catalogue, either printed or online, can be a complex and time-consuming task if not approached using the right tools. The product information stored and utilised, as well as the staff required to produce the catalog, can all be in different geographical locations making the task even more onerous.

Printed catalogues

The Matrix platform has been designed to make the production of a printed catalogue fast and efficient. It manages the workflow required as well as enabling digital sign-off of text, images and page proofs with access rights controlled throughout the system.

Online publishing

Because Matrix is multichannel it can publish your product information to a website, but Matrix  can also help publish catalogue data online, such as producing  interactive PDFs, Flash, HTML, XML, EPUBs plus publishing to  iPad and other tablets.

Retain design control
By using your existing DTP applications you can create online catalogues which have a rich content and aesthetic feel of a printed catalogue, instead of a glorified website.

Matrix provides the best content management and product information publishing tool to help expand your company’s online revenues without additional costs or resources.

It can store images in any format, open any image format and convert and re-size a copy to a web-friendly format such as an RGB JPEG as and when required. Ideal for storing a single hi-res image and repurposing it for any channel.

Carefully controlled

From initial page planning through data integration to the final online publishing or printing, the whole process needs to be carefully managed and the relevant designers and sign-off included at all stages. Access rights also need to be carefully controlled to ensure only authorised staff are making the final decisions.
