CleverCat is an easy-to-use application for creating Professional Product Catalogs. Using a simple drag-and-drop method, create a printing template, select the data and you're ready to print. Complete a catalog in minutes or hours, not weeks or months.
A Flipbook Product Catalog has never been easier to create. We have teamed with Yumpu.com to create a simple, single-click option for converting your completed PDF into a Flipbook format.
We offer a PC-based version of our application and you can find more information at: www.cataloguecreator.com

Choosing the Right Catalog Software
Page Layout software has a steep learning curve. Database-driven software is limited and inflexible.
CleverCat is a Hybrid Application combining the design flexibility of page layout software and the speed and simplicity of database-driven software.
Creating a catalog using the traditional page layout approach can take days, weeks or even longer to design every page of a catalog. CleverCat can save hundreds or even thousands of dollars in production man-hours and you can learn to use the application in only a fraction of the time.
Some database-driven products offer a limited selection of templates or have predefined data fields which can only be used for one type of data such as text or prices. With CleverCat, you can design printing templates from scratch or download templates created by other users. CleverCat has 20 fully-customizable data fields and any of them can be used for text, prices, quantities, dates and even barcodes.
Cloud vs. PC
There are advantages and disadvantages to each. Cloud-based applications allow you to access your data from any location and make collaborating with others much easier. PC-based software does not require an internet connection.
With CleverCat, there are some notable differences between the two.
The PC-based software is built around Microsoft Access. This has some advantages for Office users in that it may be easier to move data between the software and Excel.
The Cloud-based application is built on newer technology and prints up to 10x faster for large catalogs. Additionally, there are many features in the online application which are not possible to create in the PC software. Overall, our online application is superior to our PC-based one.
Data Import and Synchronization
Import data from a CSV file. Update the data directly in CleverCat or make changes in the original spreadsheet and use the Data Mapping feature to update the catalog.
Design an unlimited number of templates using a simple, drag-and-drop interface. Each product group can have 2 photos, up to 20 customizable data fields, 20 labels, and any combination of color, shading or borders. The possibilities are endless.
This is a feature missing completely from many other softwares. If your data has multiple, related products which can be represented by a single photo, CleverCat can quickly sort and group your data into tables. This creates a more logical, easier-to-navigate presentation of your products and can significantly reduce the number of pages in your catalog.
Flexible Printing Options
CleverCat has options for duplex printing, marking up or discounting prices at print time, printing individual categories or even printing selected records.
The application creates a PDF in real time which opens in your browser. You can download it to your device or print it directly from the browser.
