What is the CHILI publisher?

CHILI documents can be edited in the editor via the browser without installing software or apps. Intelligent templates with detailed role rights management and many automation approaches serve as templates. Corporate design specifications are strictly adhered to via the templates; CI-compliant work is therefore child's play with CHILI publisher, even for inexperienced users. CHILI publisher is a powerful addition for marketing portals or web-to-publish solutions. It can be easily integrated into existing platforms and workflows. Whether print or online: Digital and print data are created in no time at all.

What can the CHILI publisher do?

CHILI publisher is strong in creating format-variable templates. Rules can be defined in the templates that influence the document to be created. For example, you can define the extent to which editors are allowed to intervene in the layout or text. Users receive smart support when filling the templates and even complex use cases and dependencies can be displayed. The editor offers extensive control elements for this purpose. CHILI also offers various interfaces to external systems (PIM, DAM, e-commerce/shop, CMR, ERP). Variable data printing (VDP) is also supported, which can be used for the production of direct mailings, for example.

What can't the CHILI publisher do?

CHILI publisher focuses on editing and creating layouts. For use in multi-level marketing/sales structures, the product must be enhanced with additional components. For example, a front end is required to manage the templates, as well as a workflow component for creation and, if necessary, coordination processes. It is also advisable to use optimized output workflows in order to output the data correctly according to the intended use and channel.

In order to enable users to create templates efficiently, the templates and drafts created also need to be managed so that they can be edited or copied. Our experience shows that the large number of functions can make working with CHILI publisher very complex without customization to the needs of the respective company and can lead to problems in implementation or correct use. This is where project experience with a wide variety of use cases helps to set up the product optimally and in the necessary dimension.
