The inheritance concept greatly simplifies this work. The "quick click function" can be used to process data in the info area, where all the information about a selected element is shown at a click of the mouse.
Key basic functions:
Media elements, text elements and linked items from the selected folder in the marketing structure are displayed in the element area. All the information about the selected item is displayed in the info area and can be processed by simply clicking on it.
In order for images and documents to be used for various media, languages and markets, the media files are encapsulated in media- and language-neutral media elements which are identified for specific markets (countries, branches of industry, target groups).
During the import process, other target formats are produced using the graphics converter; pixel and vector graphics are handled in specific ways and the colour fidelity of embedded colour profiles is taken into consideration. Extensive search options, downloads or e-mails, check-in/check-out mechanisms and archiving round out the scope of functions.
Product features can be edited in bulk in tabular format with the help of specific feature lists with a comparison function. One click displays all the positions where the product is used, for instance as an accessory, spare part or product recommendation.
You can perform a text search using various text categories, such as full item name, suitability, SAP text or benefits. With one click, all places where the text element is used are displayed.
