Active WebToPrint for PimCore 5.1

Active WebToPrint is now available for PimCore 5.1 as a free and enterprise version.

With the arrival of PimCore 5, we wanted to propose an open-source version of our solution, under GPL license and with limited functionality, to allow everyone to try it.

It is now done and we propose a "Free" version allowing to create catalogs wireframes, associate products with the pages,  export them in PDF HD, etc...

The "Enterprise" version offers a large number of additional features such as automatic page numbering, the ability to move and resize the blocks that make up a product template, the automatic placement of products in pages from an Excel file, or the tree, etc ... All the features present in the previous version and more.

Our website is being updated and a "Download" section will be available soon. In the meantime, plugins are available on request.

A video presentation will be online in the coming days

INSP!RE 2017: A huge success

Incredible, incredible... Dietmar Riesch, CEO of PimCore GmbH, concluded the presentation of the Active WebToPrint solution as part of the La Redoute project at the INSP!RE unconference in Salzburg on 28 & 29 September.

In addition to an exceptional welcome, in a magnificent, functional place and in front of more than 100 participants, PimCore partners, we have been selected to present the different functionalities of our plugins which have aroused great interest.

Many contacts have been made and several meetings are already planned with Polish, Italian, German companies ...

There is no doubt that even stronger links will be established between PimCore GmbH and Active Publishing.

Beyond the international visibility that this presentation gives to our solution, the various technical presentations on migration v4 / v5, the roadmap 2018 for example were rich teaching.

Thanks to PimCore, Dietmar and all the members of his team for the quality of the welcome, the equipment, the content, etc. It was an honor and a pleasure to participate in INSP!RE 2017
