AutoPrice Squinch Reporter Module

Produce Square Inch Analysis reports from any set of
Adobe InDesign documents

The Meadows Squinch Reporter module is absolutely the most robust and comprehensive software product on the market today for producing Square Inch Analysis reports on catalogs and similar publications produced using Adobe InDesign. And if you are already a Meadows AutoPrice user, then you already have everything that you need!

Square Inch Analysis (or Squinch for short) is the process of associating specific areas of a catalog page with one or more Part Numbers or SKU's. As an example, a distributor may wish to know how much of their catalog space is dedicated to a particular product line in order to determine their return on investment for that space. In addition, further analysis of Squinch data, especially when combined with revenue data, can be very helpful in assessing future catalog space distribution for a product line, or for in-catalog advertising space.

Until the release of the Meadows Squinch Reporter module, the process of generating Squinch reports was typically performed manually. Picture a product manager with a ruler, hunched over a PDF printout, measuring off page areas one at a time, and manualy entering the corresponding SKU data into an Excel spreadsheet. Yikes!

For Adobe InDesign and AutoPrice users, those days are over. The Squinch reports are created automatically, and can be run on a single document, or on an entire batch of documents. Unique features such as our Squinch Scanner and Preview Report options really make the initial setup process easy to manage.

Report generation is lightning fast, so they can be run any time, providing up to the minute Squinch information without the need to produce PDF proofs and with absolutely no manual intervention.

All of the reports produced by the Squinch Reporter module are structured so they can be opened instantly in Microsoft Excel, or imported into any database system for further analysis. The structure of the reports can also be configured by the user.

Not already an AutoPrice user? No problem! We can set you up with a Squinch Reporter version that will work with any InDesign catalog page. Just give us a call.
