Centec Solutions is an interesting website because of how it is used by its owners. It is an online catalog that gives them the capability to print any portion of that catalog or deliver as a multi-page PDF document, tailored specifically to individual clients. That is very flexible. They also create their own new pages in minutes. That is also pennies on the dollar compared to printing a 24 or 32 or 48 page catalog with 140+ products.
Centec owners came to us for some traditional catalog design and we had a different solution. We could have certainly designed and printed a catalog, but they really only wanted a relatively small number with a growing number of parts in the future. We suggested building their catalog within the CMS website and focusing on the printer-friendly aspect of the pages where would create a stylized look that would be a worthy substitute to the traditional printed book.
So it's "green" friendly twice-- Less $$$ and less paper. That's a win/win/win situation. (client/environment/us) ;-)
"I have known Tim for many years, first as a colleague and then as a vendor. I have used Tim's Web design services to support projects I run for the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University, and I frequently recommend GO2 Media to colleagues and friends. His work never disappoints. Tim combines out of the box thinking with a deep knowledge of the mechanics of Web design and production, which results in fresh and productive Web sites. He is easy to work with, flexible and fair--qualities you can't buy."
