Your ERP system is deeply integrated and able to eg. display customer data, customer prices, availability and all orders. More...
Apps with data from PIM and MAM for Android and iOS Systems
If you want your webshop to not only be responsive, but a separate app, perhaps with additional features such as a barcode scanner that uses the mobile phone camera to photograph barcodes for a targeted search in the products, our ANTEROS apps for iOS and Android are right for you. Naturally, we adhere to the specifications for buttons and menus defined by Apple for the iOS App Store and by Google for the Play Store. More...
ANTEROS provides you more value than other systems?
- ANTEROS comes with a sophisticated functionality for assigning a clear structure to your product data. So you can update your data in a much more efficient way.
- The images database enables you to search for product images in a quick and user-friendly way and to convert image files to other formats (such as GIF, BMP, PDF on demand).
- Publishing your product data in documents for print and in a Web catalog is fully integrated with updating your product data (PIM). So you don’t have to export data, which is required with some other systems.
- Generating print catalogs in PDF format takes much less time than with other systems, e.g. 10 minutes instead of 2 hours. Especially when working under tight deadlines, e.g. when having to send the final, flawless version to a printing press, you will appreciate the additional time this gives you for proofreading.
- Using the ANTEROS Web interface, you can generate complete documents for print or just individual sections on-demand, without an additional type-setting system. So ANTEROS lets you export customer-specific subsets of a catalog at any time. Some INCONY customers even provide the users of their ANTEROS-based solutions with the option to have ANTEROS® generate the catalog subsets and data sheets this individual user needs. This is often met with positive reception.
Streamline your business operations by tapping the experience of a technology leader.

- Catalogs for print can be compiled easier and much faster.
- Catalog excerpts and customer-defined catalogs provide more value to catalog users without requiring any additional effort for you.
- Web/CD-ROM catalogs can be created interactively, with no additional effort.

- For some purposes, you have to supply some of your stored images in several formats.

- You want to provide your employees or partners/customers with a system that lets them define user-specific catalogs or catalogs excerpts and enables them to export these catalog-subsets on-demand, without incurring additional costs or placing an additional work load on your staff?
