The automated layout application that plugs into any content database

Automated layout offers fast, accurate production of long, complex and repetitive documents. It’s perfect for key content such as dates, prices and codes, where errors are easy to make and can have significant consequences. This is particularly the case for listings publications, whether for products, events or something else.

Our software can plug into pretty much any database or other data source (we can help build a user-friendly content database if that's needed), and we can collaborate with your IT team or software provider to ensure successful integration. The application takes your data and puts it into an InDesign file following your detailed design rules. You can then take that file and adjust as freely as you would any other InDesign file.

The beauty is that the application does all the grunt work in seconds, leaving your designers to do what they’re good at – using their creative skills to design high impact pages and to review the layout.

What’s more, you can take the same data and cut it in different ways. You may have one publication that lists all your products, services or events, and another, more specialist publication that details only certain kinds. That’s quick and easy, and you can be sure that no mistakes are made, no wrong text pasted into the wrong part of the document, and no typos introduced.

Another important benefit is the ability to index and cross-reference a document – quickly, thoroughly and entirely accurately.

There’s no compromise in design or creativity – just a huge time saving on the mundane work.
