Printing automation

Full printing automation creates print outputs/PDFs based on templates, data and rules. Foundation for this functionality is the interoperation between Pimcore PIM and RealObjects PDFreactor. No manual setup of content is required like it generally happens with product listings, product detail pages, etc. It comes quite handy for automating the creating of data sheets, price lists, and energy labels.

The terrace designer e.g. is a special component of Pimcore eCommerce and is tightly integrated with Pimcore PIM, which uses PDFreactor as plug-in. For B2B customers, the terrace designer calculates the optimal patterns for the desired terrace floor plans and generates the building instructions, including material lists, construction plans, sketches etc. PDFreactor then generates a PDF, presenting all the info in an attractive layout.
