Publishing Automation

Effective product communication for multiple channels

Publishing automation is a process where product content is published from one source to multiple channels or media automatically. Until these days, when channels and media have been limited and technological solutions have not provided any help, product information has been maintained manually across all channels. Omnichannel digital sales will change the setting.

Publishing Automation allows you to publish centrally managed product information per channel as defined on websites, webshop, quotations, price lists, product catalogues, and store materials. This ensures a consistent customer experience across all channels where product information is published. At the same time, marketing efficiency improves and high-quality product information becomes a distinguishing factor.

Effective product process, high quality and up-to-date product information as well as efficient publishing and distribution processes are critical business success factors.

Centralised Product Information Management (PIM) and Publishing Automation help efficient and controlled distribution of product information to the media and channels where it is needed.

Case 1

40-FOLD FASTER CAMPAIGN PUBLICATION PRODUCTION

We helped our customers significantly improve the content production of regular promotional campaign bulletins. Previously, collecting product information for a 64-page magazine lasted for 3-5 weeks. After the optimisation of the publication process, the same phase is now performed in 3-5 hours. The solution is based on a centralised product database (Adeona PIM) and InDesign automation, enabling the editorial designer to turn the formatted product information into a ready to print publication in a wink. Additional information and alternative product information, such as images, is imported into the template to facilitate the artist’s creative work.

Case 2

PRODUCT CATALOGUE FOR TENS OF THOUSANDS SKU’S

In many industries B2B customers still require a printed product catalogue. Publishing a product catalogue containing tens of thousands of stock keeping units would be impossible without a highly automated publication process. The logical product categorisation and the harmonised product data structure in the centralised system (Adeona PIM) as well as standardised templates and dynamic publishing automation based on defined rules allow for cost-effective catalogue production. Brands of suppliers can also be displayed at the desired level, for example by importing logos in product groups. What remains to be done for the editorial designer is styling the raw, that is, the necessary visual  finishing and fine tuning, as well as adding promotion of pages.
