Intelligent Paper Planning

With minimal training, start to place, move and adjust display advertising layouts (print & tablet) with ease.

Receive Bookings from Any Booking System

QuickLayout accepts display advertisements in a range of formats (Automated booking service API, XML, ADS or custom import) and paginates a publication quickly ready to integrate with a desktop publishing package such as Adobe InDesign, Roxen Editorial Portal or your existing editorial system.

Create the Publication Layout

Advertising data is collated & used to distribute advertisements across pages according to publication requirements, press configuration, advertisement requirements and priority.

QuickLayout then positions these advertisements on appropriate pages and sections.

Automatic Pagination and Fine Tuning

Hundreds of advertisements can be automatically paginated from import to save time and extend your production deadlines.

Pagination is controlled by a fast, customisable AI based algorithm that distributes advertisements across the publication. With added flexibility, QuickLayout enables managers to select and order advertisements to specific requirements.

Publication Layers - Impositions, Folios and more
