For more than 20 years, dataplan has been developing software for operative and strategic planning and control in publishing houses and advising companies on solving business problems. In the recent past, international activities have been successfully intensified, so that JournalDesigner and JournalProducer are no longer only used by well-known publishing houses in Germany, but also, for example, in the USA, Switzerland and the Netherlands.
JournalDesigner planning system
JournalDesigner is a flexible planning system in which central processes of page production such as planning of the magazine structure, placement of advertisements and monitoring of the production process are integrated into a product. Comprehensive functions for occupancy planning, scope changes and placement control ensure a high degree of planning reliability and flexibility.
A bi-directional interface to vjoon K4, via which planning data and changes are transferred in real time, ensures that editorial offices and advertising departments are always up to date with magazine production. Even during layout creation, K4 uses object rules to point out conflicts in ad placement and thus avoids time-consuming and costly corrections in later phases of magazine creation.
“vjoon K4 is the first InDesign-based system to have a productive connection with JournalDesigner. vjoon has done an excellent conceptual job, and together we have created a solution that seamlessly integrates our systems.”
