Catalogs for fasteners – and similar building and automotive products – are well suited to automation given the large number of products comprising a typical range.
- Structured layout aids easy product reference
- Product attributes may be shown to enhance user experience
- Multiple product prices may be shown and updated automatically
- Category summary images are shown instead of individual product images
- Product ranges are often very large
- Numerous products share many similar (or identical) attributes
- Products are often not visually attractive
Product management for fastener catalogs
Fastener catalogs typically comprise hundreds (if not thousands) of products, with up to 10 product attributes associated with each product.
Managing this product information can be challenging, especially if you’re using a spreadsheet or ERP software.
Catalog Automation has developed its own purpose-built product information management platform – known as Producty™.
Producty™ allows you to manage your products using a drag-and-drop tree, and to easily add formatted text and product attributes.
Benefits of automating your fastener catalog
The sample page shown below includes elements typically found in a fastener catalog. Your catalog can be tailored to your specific design & product requirements based on this design, or you may choose to use one of the other templates in our library as a starting point.
Catalog templates include single column (full page), two column and three column layouts. Designs may be fixed to a particular size (i.e. a grid-based layout) or be sized according to the content (i.e. a flow-based layout).
