Catalogue Management Systems

Maximised productivity through control of your catalogue data

X-RM specialises in the production of integrated catalogue management solutions for all your digital content. Our catalogue management software provides you with productivity and accuracy in producing your online, print and CD-ROM based catalogues.

The core of our catalogue management systems is a powerful relational database into which product data is entered, updated and managed by engineering, sales and marketing personnel either locally or remotely. The product database supports all electronic and print publishing media. Users can produce print, website or CD-ROM catalogues at any time with the latest data set and product data can be imported from financial accounting or other legacy systems.

If you have a particular data management or production issue for which you need a catalogue management solution please contact us to discuss you requirements.
