Zhone product factsheets


"260 product datasheets, co-branded on-the-fly for resellers... 30 edits in the last 30 days, handled entirely automatically...all for $0 in ongoing costs, with no need for in-house or outside graphic design services"

-- David Young, Zhone Technologies


Zhone Technologies is a global provider of advanced telecommunications equipment. They use Report Markup Language™ to generate publication-quality PDF data sheets for hundreds of electronic and network products. The PDFs are regenerated every time the content changes, to ensure they match Zhone's website.

The project features complex logic to take account of high variability between products, and is able to achieve an attractive layout by making intelligent decisions about positioning tall versus wide images, where to place order information and so on.
