What is EasyCatalog?
EasyCatalog is a complete data-driven publishing solution, allowing users to create content automatically within InDesign from product information contained within a database or spreadsheet. It provides a link between the product database and the content, alerting users to any changes as the source data is updated.
EasyCatalog includes powerful tools to assist in the management of your catalogue workflow e.g. highlighting missing images; alerts for updated content etc.
EasyCatalog is installed as an InDesign plugin using a separate installer. Typically an EasyCatalog workflow consists of the base module and pagination module which is used to automatically add pages for product content as required. The base module can read in both CSV and Excel files; with additional data provider modules available for purchase to enable importing of XML or ODBC data sources.
