WHY SPEND HOURS ... DAYS ... OR EVEN WEEKS CREATING YOUR CATALOGUE, DIRECTORY, OR PRICE LIST? LET CATBASE DO IT FOR YOU IN MINUTES!
RAPIDLY TURN YOUR DATABASE OR SPREADSHEET INTO A PERFECTLY-FORMATTED PUBLICATION
CatBase is a database publishing application which automates the process of formatting data ready for publication. Working with your chosen publishing destination (QuarkXPress, Adobe InDesign, Microsoft Word, HTML documents, XML files, etc.), CatBase adds special tags to automatically format the information and (most publishing destinations) pictures for you.
Here's a video that demonstrates how CatBase produces a beautiful illustrated product catalog in just five minutes, working with Adobe InDesign:
Data can also be published to other destinations such as QuarkXPress, Word, XML, Excel, and text files; and to other databases, such as MySql, SqlServer, etc. (Data Chameleon edition).
Imagine how much time this will save you!
Instead of spending hours or even DAYS manually formatting your data, CatBase will do it all automatically in minutes!
