For over 20 years, dataplan has been providing European magazine publishers management software solutions for production and planning, optionally augmented by consulting to further improve efficiency. Solutions that have provided tremendous benefits in both operating performance and magazine product quality. Recently, dataplan has extended its reach into the U.S market, by implementing JournalDesigner with prominent U.S.-based magazine publishers who are now using the complete suite of JournalDesigner products.

JournalDesigner is a flexible page planning solution that integrates ad placement, editorial structure planning and management of production process within one tool. Enhanced features such as monitoring of text alterations and ad placement control ensure a wide range of reliability and flexibility in the production process.

JournalDesigner offers a full two-way integration to vjoon K4, transferring data and any changes in real time, making sure that editorial staff and ad department always use the latest up-to-date information of page planning. If an ad placement violates the predefined object rules, K4 users will be alerted immediately to avoid costly mistakes.

“vjoon K4 is the first InDesign-based system to implement an integration with JournalDesigner. vjoon demonstrated exceptional conceptional skills that enabled us to seamlessly integrate both systems.”
