Santa Cruz Software is a leader in Web-To-Publish turnkey Software as service portals (hosted or on-premise) and core technologies that are integrated into digital asset management (DAM) applications (Adobe Experience Manager, Box, Brandfolder, Canto, Cierto, Cloudinary, Dropbox, Intelligence Bank, MediaValet, Tenovos, WebDAM (Bynder), and Widen), eCommerce stores, and other third party solutions. Our customers plan, execute, and distribute cross-media marketing collateral and campaigns globally, as well as, create personalizable consumer products.
Our solutions help our customers close the gap between corporate marketing and local marketing and sales by putting professional designs AND corporate brand management guidelines into the hands of their local teams, partners, and customers and empower them to make their own local decisions.
Our solutions are hosted by us with zero installation necessary! There’s no need to manage servers, deal with complex software, or purchase InDesign Server licenses. We utilize hosting services from Amazon Web Services (AWS). Tasks are separated by multiple servers: Processing jobs through single or multi-instance InDesign Servers; administrative tasks; and Web Application delivery. REST APIs are used for managing templates, fonts, and processing jobs. If needed these services can be deployed an On-Premise SaaS option.
Simply add some HTML code and a bit of server-side programming (such as PHP or .NET) to call our APIs. Adobe Experience Manager, Box, Brandfolder, Canto, Cierto, Cloudinary, Dropbox, Intelligence Bank, MediaValet, Tenovos, WebDAM (Bynder), and Widen are some of our DAM partners.
Templates are created using any InDesign document. All features of InDesign are supported correctly, maintaining full fidelity. An extension to InDesign runs on the designer’s machine to prepare the documents for upload and ensures quality control. A web-based administrator's console gives complete control over your templates.
Our user interface is localized for several languages, including right-to-left and complex languages. Because we're native InDesign based, we support any of the document languages that InDesign supports. Fonts that appear in our web application are completely controlled by the client. Fonts can be specific to a single template or available for all templates.
Edit once and publish to various output media types such as PDF, PNG, JPEG, HTML, and IDML.
Hundreds of companies use products from Santa Cruz Software. Here are some case studies for a few of them.
Indigo Golf Partners provides full-service management of and consultation to more than 160 golf clubs in 29 states. They have been using our BrandingUI portal for several years now and their benefits have been huge. They have been able to expand while reducing their workload and drastically reducing their turn-around time on marketing campaigns. We have enabled them to go from 3 week design cycles to less than 24 hours. The marketing team used to respond to 5.5 requests a day, and now they handle 2.5 requests a day. The rest of the requests can be self-served with BrandingUI. This enables the marketing team to be much more creative and pro-active in their campaigns.
KlubbSverige is Sweden's largest association of independent gyms. They use our BrandingUI portal to supply over 100 professionally designed templates to over 250 gyms. The cost-effective end result is great-looking advertisements and posters for gym/fitness marketing. CEO Stefan Tingwall explains that “Our customers are happy because they get a lot bang for their buck! And with PrintUI, they get to be part of the [creative] process. Many of them actually enjoy giving their own look and feel to these pieces.”
Woodhoue Day Spas has tripled their number of spa franchises over the last three years. As they grew, distribution of marketing material was becoming very complex, expensive, and labor intensive, making it difficult to control their brand identity. PrintUI provided the solution. How much of a workflow time-saver is PrintUI? For Woodhouse, it’s the difference between multiple people working a few days versus a few hours. According to CMO Paul Erdelt. “Without the PrintUI editor, we’d need to hire more [corporate] staff. I’m not exaggerating,” he insists.
