Challenge: easy handling of complex applications

SAGAFLOR AG has been an association of independent garden and pet commercial for almost 50 years. Not only does it represent a strong purchasing power for its members, it also supplies participants with images for marketing activities that are made available via the extranet. While it is important for end users to have an intuitive solution that helps them concentrate on their core business, those responsible at SAGAFLOR were faced with the challenge of mapping extremely complex business processes with a flexible and powerful database system that fits into existing processes. Solution: easydb . digitalasset

During the preliminary research easydb stood out as a possible solution. As standard, easydb meets exclusion criteria such as automatic calculation of different image sizes and file formats and an interface to Typo3. The additional functions also quickly convinced us: all images for the online shop, the checkout monitor and the live animal labeling system are now made available from easydb via PermaLinks. The advantages are obvious: End users optimize their internal processes, reduce incorrect labeling through visual product inspection and can provide their graphic designers with images in the required resolution. Even shelf filling is planned from easydb !
