As the internet use has become widely spread and companies have become more globalized, the need for product information in multiple languages and formats has risen sharply. This trend has caused various issues in converting information into different versions, especially for documents with many pages such as catalogs.
Pimlus, a content management system (CMS) developed by Akagane, enables clients to store a huge amount of data. This system can produce many different versions of catalogs (i.e. paper-based, web-based, foreign language versions) in parallel, therefore enabling all the versions to be published or released simultaneously.
As Pimlus eliminates additional tasks incidental to each conversion, our clients can rapidly deploy a new catalog in different languages and formats across the global market.
Pimlus allows a client to consolidate the tasks which have been separately performed for different catalog editions or versions: paper-based, web-based, foreign language editions. As a result, the client can produce all catalogs of different formats and language versions in just one concise project.
Pimlus can be accessed via an internet browser for various tasks such as production data entry and editing and does not require any installation or complex operation.
Embedded with Akagane’s Expertise for Large Volume Processing
Pimlus is equipped with automatic processing features for handling a large number of pages, designed with Akagane’s expertise.
Configured to Each Client’s Needs
Our IT Team, which developed Pimlus, will configure the system so as to perfectly fit to the requirements of each client, utilizing its inside-out knowledge of the system. In addition, it supports integration with clients’ existing database systems, automatic table compilation, and many more features.
