PGLAdBoss™ - Self-service access to page dummies
Real-time web-based self-service access to page dummies
A picture is worth a thousand words. That's why so many newspaper staff prefer graphic page dummies to a simple data report. You probably get page dummies for each edition. Printed grey-scale versions are nice. E-mailed current PDF versions are better.
Now for the next generation. We think you will find PGLAdBoss™ provides unexpected perfection.
Have you ever wished that the dummies the layout department gives you were slightly different? Perhaps what you need isn't exactly what others want, but what you get is what everyone else gets. If you are tired of settling for the least common denominator, listen up. PGLAdBoss provides a new level of individualized customization. Now everyone can get what they want when they need it. You get the immediacy of web based self-service with dummies made specifically for you.
Want a different appearance? Your pre-stored profiles automate giving you the look you want. Need to see the completion status of ads and other page components? PGLAdBoss shows them on the dummies made for you in real-time. Want to see yesterday's edition design or even last weeks? They are saved for you.
Don't want to see every page? Selectively generate PDFs with only the pages you need. Sports editors can get just the sports pages. Salespeople can get pages with ads they've sold. Show only pages with incomplete ads? No problem. Color pages only? Ditto.
Here's the really cool part. The page dummies produced by PGLAdBoss are lively. Click on an ad space when using SCS's advertising applications and you are accessing SCS's ad tracking system SCS/Track™ for ad statuses. Link directly to SCS’ ad management system, AdMAX™ right from the drawing of the ad on the page.
PGLAdBoss's new PDF bookmarking feature gets you to the right page or element quickly and easily. You can drill down to find out more information about ads and pages. Select what you want when you need it!
Not least of all, the layout department is saved the hassle of distributing dummies. No more printing and delivering or e-mailing copies. No more saving old printouts. Or sharing copies. No more not-quite-right dummy styles. No more printer issues. With self-service, dummies can be printed on any PDF compatible device. Browser based viewing makes everything easier! Save a tree or two!
PGLAdBoss makes dummies come alive! WYSIWYW - What you see is what you wanted! It is a perfect add-on to Layout-8000.
