How it works
Your product highlighted
Categora is a PIM (Product Information Management), a complete management system: it gathers all data in one place.
Versatility, control, data safety: it simplifies management and control of product information.
Reduces costs and management time.
Modular and integrable
The software is configurable with ad hoc modules that offer the necessary functionalities, according to the project and the catalog to be paginated.
We often propose and implement the product's data correct management (even editing already existing tools, if necessary), to obtain optimal information for the final user's consultation, first of all, and for administrative management. The company can thus consult its database naturally and intuitively, for marketing and commercial actions too.
Furthermore, Categora can be programmed to perform synchronization processes, periodic or manual, with the internal management of the company.
It is then able to communicate with different systems and platforms, such as AS400, SAP, Oracle, Navision, FileMaker, and, in general, all the platforms that offer a data import/export system.
A complete management system
We present a complete management system: once the incoming data flow is arranged, Categora offers multiple features for the single product management. It's able to manage autonomously the entire database, too.
Categora allows to edit visual and multimedia information which cannot be processed directly by a company's ERP, like such: product pictures, ancillary matching, extended description, CAD components, multimedia component (descriptive videos, linked manuals, captions, datasheets, certifications, additional languages, etc.).
Central informative system
Categora becomes a central informative system that can be managed and consulted by different company roles: designers have access to real-time status of products and their attachments; account managers have access to generic data, along with price info and datasheets with data not displayed publicly (ie product release info, stock and packaging info, special discounts, etc.).
Once imported and managed, the project can be published on different channels: catalogs, price lists, dedicate info directories, magazines with specific product collections, promotional brochures, product sheet, dynamic websites, B2B and B2C e-commerce, dynamic manuals, online customer care, specific ERPs with online resources, multimedia apps, dedicated IT systems, etc.
Adobe InDesign: THE editor for designers
Our auto-pagination systems match perfectly with Adobe InDesign, a tool for the development of pubblication's creative part.
The development of Categora's scripts and dedicated plug-ins for collection and management of data allows InDesign users to be completely independent in the making of many different typesets.
