OL Connect

Empowering you to create, automate and distribute your most important documents

The OLTM Connect Technology (PlanetPress Connect / PReS Connect) provides a toolbox to produce and send highly personalised communications, no matter what distribution mode used: print, web, email or SMS. Document related processes can be automated and the multi-channel output capabilities mean that you can communicate via your customer’s preferred medium.

The modules that make up this very powerful toolbox includes:

  • The DataMapper, the link to your data systems, for easy and intuitive data models extraction and creation.
  • The Designer, to create data-driven HTML communications that can be used in digital format or for printing (thanks to HTML5, CSS and JavaScript standards). This tool allows alternating from one communication format to another i.e. print and email and sharing content and images, so that, in the end, the work is done only once.
  • The Workflow tool, known and loved by existing PlanetPress users, allows the automation of any process related to customer or transactional communications.

An excellent bridge between systems
This new technology has the same philosophy with its predecessor –PlanetPress– and will easily integrate into existing systems organisations have in place. This means that minimal investment in IT infrastructure or consultation costs will be required.

Enhanced printing
With OLTM Connect it is possible to totally personalise printed outputs while enjoying advanced page layout capabilities and dynamic tools creation (tables, charts, etc.). It is also possible to connect to mass-mailing applications and add barcodes and scan marks.

Native HTML for digital
Thanks to the powerful Designer tool, there's no need to convert anything into HTML. The software creates communications directly by using HTML5, CSS and JavaScript, thereby providing new possibilities for optimal and interactive email or Web communications but allows to easily create printing formats with the same resources.

The Benefits

In the end, Connect users will experience a reduction of their costs, an enhancement of their communication channels as well as better operational flexibility while gaining clients’ acceptance and trust.
