Catalog Builder is a Once-in-a-Generation cloud-based catalog building technology developed by Blue Lacuna that empowers users to create highly professional product catalogs with customer, seasonal or event specific SKU mixes. Just upload a list of desired SKU's and let Catalog Creator do the rest!

Every Catalog Builder project includes a dedicated website, password protected accounts for all users, the domain of your choosing...as well as server space, security best practices, ongoing site maintenance and customer support.

How Does Catalog Builder Work?
Catalog Builder starts by loading in a list of SKU's you want to include in the catalog. Catalog Builder takes that data in and offers options to order Catalog by Category, Brand, Alpha-numeric or Existing Order in the upload. Once that selection is made, Catalog Builder connects each included SKU to its relevant images and all available marketing/sales data. Users can also select from available Front, Back and Inside cover page options as well as customize colors, Headers and Footers.

From there Catalog Builder takes your customization preferences and uses them to paginate and construct the entire catalog automatically! Once the Catalog is built, users can customize product copy or swap in alternate product images very easily. Want to re-order products or move products between pages? No problem! Use Catalog Builder's Structure Panel to drag and drop products as you see fit. With each change that you make...Catalog Builder will automatically adjust page layouts to conform.

Once you have your catalog absolutely perfect...you can export it in PDF format, PowerPoint (.PPTX) format or even create a Pop-Up E-Commerce sitelet....all with a single click your mouse!

Easy product Add and Delete functionality allows you to leverage Catalogs over and over with weekly, monthly or quarterly for your customers!

Tracking and Reporting
Catalog Builder has a powerful usage and resource Tracking and Reporting Module that tracks usage patterns as well as feature and resource activity among your user base. At any point in time, you can access reports to see all the real-time tracking data you could possibly want. As part of every Catalog Builder project, Blue Lacuna will assemble quarterly usage and resource tracking reports and a Value Analysis that uses real-world metrics that demonstrate a consistent and powerful return on investment.

Q. How Much Does Catalog Builder Cost?
As always, cost varies based on scope and complexity. The project cost is divided into two parts, a one-time development fee and a monthly user subscription fee. Both are likely much less than you would guess. Expect your investment to pay for itself very quickly in increased sales, productivity gains and more prolific and professional customer communications.

Q. What is included in the Monthly User Subscription Fee?
The monthly subscription fee includes a dedicated Catalog Builder account for each user and all necessary user support. At the project level, this fee includes the secure server slot, server space for your project resources, powerful security practices, redundant backup of all resources, trivial changes, updates to data and resources, and more. One fee covers everything, no nickel-diming here.

Q. How Long Does it Take to Implement?
Typically, it is about 8-12 weeks from handshake to Go Live. It can be faster when deadlines dictate.
