Stibo Catalog announced the commercial availability of STEP 4.7, the next generation of its product content management and publishing solution for product and catalog-centric businesses. STEP 4.7 includes support for Adobe InDesign CS2 for both Macintosh and PC. Marketing professionals can now publish promotions directly from STEP’s product information management (PIM) module, which means they have greater creative design control. The plug-in allows InDesign users access to STEP via a native palette. STEP takes advantage of some of InDesign’s advanced features including layers for version publishing and multi-lingual publishing. STEP now supports WebDAV, which allows users with access privileges to browse the product hierarchy. With WebDAV, non-standard users can access STEP without the requirement of a full-user license. The new optional STEPtrade module enables users to create and deliver high volume and high frequency e-catalogs to any e-procurement applications. The tool is designed to allow users to respond rapidly to changing demand and deliver updated product information and pricing within hours. STEP 4.7 is based on J2EE technology using the IBM Websphere application server.
