Project Description

I am searching for a software which can facilitate the pagination of classified adverts on Indesign. I have a need to paginate classifieds but have to do it manually at the moment. I have noted there are several solutions on the internet but they are usually associated with larger products which I do not need. I only need to be able to speed up my classifieds creation and pagination.

I need the full solution, which should comprise:

-Dynamic Database for advert input (Must be able to bulk upload via csv, xml or equivalent)
-Must be intelligent to differentiate between days of the week, section for the pagination
-Must support transfer to indesign in the correct format for automatic pagination
-Must be user friendly

There are several software which already perform these tasks - An example of what I need can be found on this video:

There are also other examples of newspapers software which have a similar performance (like abanuncios, suita, aspin plus, Ad layout plus) - some even rely only on straight import from excel using xtags.

I don't mind how it is done as long as I get the desired results. I need to be able to do the following:

-Have a database of adverts
-Add new events to the database
- Include images associated with each individual advert (if relevant)
-Get automatic formatting of each individual classified advert (including relevant pictures)
-Paginate the classifieds page on Indesign, virtually automatically.

I realize this may not be quite straight-forward, but should you need any clarifications, please let me know.

Please, only bid on the project if you believe you can actually deliver the final product.

Thanks
