Project development stages
The graphic design plan
The first stage is to define the layout design of the publication.
Software, working in a classic manner, is used to build the page layout (or layouts) of the publication.
Acquisition and selection of contents from the database
The data required for the publication is defined in this stage.
This data may be taken from a database (e.g. AS/400, SQLServer, Mysql, etc.) or from the usual computer programs (Access, Excel, Word, etc.). Once all data has been acquired we can proceed to select the specific content that will be included in the pages of the publication.
Database publishing of data
Once all the contents for the publication have been identified the completely automatic system will layout all the data that needs to be included according to the previously preset layout, distinguishing the files by language, category, etc.
The last stage before completing the process is to save the publication. In fact you can use the system to preview the publication in html pdf, tiff, and jpg formats. Files can be generated using the driver of the virtual printer which can then be used for:
- High resolution prints printed by a printing company
- Printing with various levels of resolution using your own printer
- Sending, in a digital format, by email or on data storage device
- Publishing, in digital format, on company websites
