Challenge: simple handling of complex applications

For almost 50 years, SAGAFLOR AG has been an association of independent garden and pet retail companies. For its members, it not only represents a strong purchasing power, it also supplies participants with image material for marketing activities, which is made available via the extranet. While an intuitive solution that helps them focus on their core business is important for end users, those responsible at SAGAFLOR faced the challenge of mapping extremely complex business processes with a flexible and powerful database system that fits into existing processes. Solution: easydb.digitalasset

Already in the preliminary research, easydb stood out as a possible solution. Exclusion criteria such as automatic calculation of various image sizes and file formats and an interface to Typo3 were met by easydb as standard. The additional functions were also quickly convincing: via PermaLinks, all images for the online store, the checkout monitor and the live animal labeling system are now provided from easydb . The benefits are obvious: end users optimize their internal processes, reduce incorrect labeling through visual product verification, and can provide their graphic designers with image material in the required resolution. Even shelf replenishment is planned from easydb !
