Catalog Builder® software is key to success of supply catalog

(2007 June 11) -- Computer Pundits Corporation announced today the release of Catalog Builder® 4.0. The software depended upon by hundreds of companies for its automated approach to catalog production now offers advanced layout and graphic design control with Adobe InDesign and Document Builder Modules. Oracle database support is also included, enhancing the catalog software’s ability to integrate with large-scale product and inventory management databases.

Catalog Builder®, the leading in-house catalog design and management system, automates the process of producing full-line and specialty catalogs in multiple formats including print, Adobe® PDF, browser-based CD-ROM and eCommerce catalogs. Customers range from small regional wholesale distributors to large companies like TRANE, Carrier, RadioShack, and Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway.

Most Catalog Builder® customers choose the software because it can design their catalogs for them; even users with no graphic design skills can produce professional quality catalogs. The intelligent software dynamically generates templates to fit the attributes and specifications of the products in the catalog. The Adobe InDesign module available with Catalog Builder® 4.0 enhances that automated design functionality with sophisticated graphics, typography, and formatting capabilities.

Now Catalog Builder® users who have strict corporate design requirements or highly creative design staffs can create customized InDesign templates and apply them to product categories in the Catalog Builder® database. In this way, users can produce marketing tools like vendor-focused and niche-market catalogs, seasonal flyers, printed price lists and full-line catalogs without designing them from scratch every time.

Another creativity-enhancing feature of Catalog Builder® 4.0 is the new Document Builder Module. With it, users can drag and drop existing catalog information to create customized brochures, sales flyers, spec sheets, and other marketing materials.
