Paper Catalogues to HTML

Paper Catalogues to HTML: "Printed paper catalogues can now be converted into pure HTML while fully maintaining the appearance of paper documents even for complex layouts and tables so that the HTML documents look and feel ex-actly the same as the paper version.

You are on the Internet within days and at minimal costs. No peparation, no data entry! Use existing paper catalogues! Please find samples and all the details on:

The contents of DTP files from Quark Xpress or Pagemaker or even scanned plain paper originals are converted into pure HTML for immediate use with the latest Internet browsers. Even HyperLinks on article numbers are automatically created.

This is the only DTP to HTML converter that really works! For the first time the proven layout of printed product catalogues can be used on the Internet opening the door to e-commerce systems built on existing printed material.

Massive savings over "traditional" methods The costs involved are tiny compared to the traditional route. Most importantly: all the data needed to create online catalogues for e-commerce already exists in paper catalogues. Manufacturers and dealers get online within days, with all existing product data, at no cost of building and maintaining an Internet database, no staff needed for data preparation or editing and no costs for redesigning data just for the Internet.

For e-commerce between businesses, maintaining a recognisable, proven layout for the Internet is easily the best solution! Paper catalogues have been carefully designed to provide maximum impact and now all this investment can be used for the Internet almost for free. This maximises the advantages of the Internet while retaining those of familiar paper catalogues with their proven layout. Now, there is only one single layout for paper, Internet and CD-ROM.

Innovative technology produces pure HTML Pages are recomposed from pure HTML using CSS. They contain links on article numbers, pages or special action links. HTML pages offer the many advantages of the Internet, they are transferred much faster than PDF files and all the contents are available to Internet spiders.

Available now The conversion of DTP files or plain paper to HTML is available now at very low cost. license: commercial
