PIM for Indesign

Create printed catalogs faster with the EasyCatalog connector for InDesign.

How does the InDesign connector work?

Creating printed catalogs in B2B companies is an important task that typically involves lots of data, numerous revisions, and many months of preparation for your marketing and design teams. What if you could drastically reduce the time you spend preparing printed catalogs?

With the EasyCatalog PIM connector, you significantly reduce the time spent on this project, by synchronizing your product data to the InDesign program. Centralizing all your product information in the Sales Layer PIM, allows you to analyze your data with our Quality Score. Our platform identifies any data errors or missing fields, allowing your marketing team to enrich the quality of your content.

InDesign provides the flexibility to customize your catalogs with a layout of your choosing. With PIM, you can simply select the product information fields you want to include or exclude, then they are automatically sent across to InDesign via our connector. There are two connector options for businesses:

• A simple connector for InDesign, which generates CSV files with your product data.

• The EasyCatalog connector, an official extension for Adobe InDesign. This is more powerful, offering more complex catalog layout options.

What features does the Sales Layer PIM & EasyCatalog InDesign connector include?

The Sales Layer PIM allows you to consolidate and enrich all your product content, before synchronizing that data across to other programs such as InDesign.

One of the biggest advantages of our connector is the ability to see the data changes you make in the PIM reflected in your designs, without affecting the layout. Manual corrections across both platforms will become a thing of the past, as edits you make in the PIM will update in InDesign in real time.

This avoids confusion and errors when creating printed catalogs, speeds up the creation of any document and ensures accurate product data across all touchpoints.

If your business creates product catalogs with lots of data, or complex fields, and you require a more sophisticated layout as a result, our EasyCatalog connector in Sales Layer offers many advantages.

• Hierarchical product grouping
• Customized product template libraries
• Assignment of styles (paragraph, character, etc.)
• Generation of complex tables of contents
• Custom fields
• Ability to use automation scripts
