Product Information

CleverCat is an easy-to-use application for creating Professional Product Catalogs. Using a simple drag-and-drop method, create a printing template, select the data and you're ready to print. Complete a catalog in minutes or hours, not weeks or months.

This site is for the PC-based software.

Flipbooks

A Flipbook Product Catalog has never been easier to create. We have teamed with Yumpu.com to create a simple, single-click option for converting your completed PDF into a Flipbook format.
NOTE: This option is only available with the cloud-based application. If you choose the PC-based software, you can still use Yumpu, you just have to create your own account and upload your PDF manually.

Choosing the Right Catalog Software

Page Layout software has a steep learning curve. Database-driven software is limited and inflexible.

CleverCat is a Hybrid Application combining the design flexibility of page layout software and the speed and simplicity of database-driven software.

Creating a catalog using the traditional page layout approach can take days, weeks or even longer to design every page of a catalog. CleverCat can save hundreds or even thousands of dollars in production man-hours and you can learn to use the software in only a fraction of the time.

Some database-driven products offer a limited selection of templates or have predefined data fields which can only be used for one type of data such as text or prices. With CleverCat, you can design printing templates from scratch or download templates created by other users. CleverCat has 20 fully customizable data fields and any of them can be used for text, prices, quantities, dates and even barcode fonts.

Features

Data Import and Synchronization

Import data from a spreadsheet or CSV file. Update the data directly in CleverCat or make changes in the original spreadsheet and use the Data Mapping feature to update the catalog.

Template Designer

Modify one of the many included templates, design a new one from scratch or download a template designed by someone else. Each product can have 2 photos, up to 20 customizable data fields, 20 labels, any font installed on your computer, and any combination of color, shading or borders. The possibilities are endless.

We can design your templates for you - for free!

Detail Tables

This is a feature missing completely from many other softwares. If your data has related items which can be represented by a single photo, CleverCat can quickly sort and group your data into tables. This creates a more logical, easier-to-navigate presentation of your products and can significantly reduce the number of pages in your catalog.

Flexible Printing Options

CleverCat has options for duplex printing, marking up or discounting prices at print time, printing individual categories or even printing selected records. Use any PDF software installed on your computer to create a PDF version of your catalog.

PHP and HTML

CleverCat can produce static HTML or dynamic PHP files and even integrate a PayPal shopping cart. These files can be inserted into an online frame on your existing website for an instant online store.
