LinkUP Pricing - Our ‘entry level’ LinkUP software. This XTension automates the time-consuming problem of manually inputting pricing updates. It works for text and data and uses simple .dbf files as data sources.    

LinkUP Workgroup – LinkUP Workgroup has the same functions as LinkUP Pricing but with the added advantage of updating picture/image fields too. You can use .dbf files or other flat file databases or tables to store your data. LinkUP Workgroup will also export changes to your datasource.

LinkUP Enterprise - Our most popular XTension for database publishing. LinkUP Enterprise builds on the functions of Pricing and Workgroup with the powerful benefit of automated document building. LinkUP Enterprise takes advantage of relational databases, allowing full relational builds (for catalogues or documents with sections and subsections etc). It also has built-in Indexing and TOC, header and footer creation, mail merge etc.

LinkUP AutoDoc - This is a complete XTension but also a tailored software package, for fully automated and remote access database publishing. Using database or web content to create repetitive or high through-put documents. It is valuable if you have a huge number of documents to create (mass personalisation for instance), or you want to keep a tight hold on brand values or compilation parameters. This is not an ‘off the shelf’ package but if you have the need for speed, then let us know your requirements and we'll let you know how LinkUP AutoDoc can create hundreds of documents hands-free.
