Category 9 - Solutions for the Print, Media and Advertising Industries

By: Elive  05/12/2011

Our Flagship Product provides an expert Advert Booking System for the News and Print Industry. Core is a web-app which we can host for you or can be installed on an in-house server for speed and increased security. Our goal with Core is to link directly with your Accounts System and Production/Workflow System. This means that only one client listing needs to be maintained. It also gives Accounts full control of the booking process so certain client accounts can be put on hold if needed.

This is an Applescript to take a feed from any Classifieds Booking System in a defined CSV format and feed it to Quark Express to get back Adverts heights.
