Discover the new way to create print publications
GoPublish helps you design the ultimate reader experience for your audience in every issue you produce.
Planning the layout and trying to figure out which content goes where is not a chore anymore.
This a beautiful way for you to leave spreadsheets and manually-created layout documents behind and start dragging and dropping features, advertorials, adverts and inserts exactly where you want them on a visual flat plan.
Sales teams and senior staff can drop in and take a look whenever they want. You can invite clients to review their paid content designs to give feedback, request changes and sign off using GoProof.

FLAT PLANNING SOFTWARE FOR PUBLICATIONS
Create the page layout, add the artwork and feel the true reader experience
Insert new pages, drag them around, out and back in
You’re going to save hours with GoPublish on page optimisations.
It’s easy to say ‘Let’s see the advertorial on pages 6 and 7 instead.’ Just get hold of the pages and drag them across the plan to reposition them. Done. Instantly.
And if the plan is full, use the drop zone above the plan to take them out, reposition the others and then drop them back into their new home.
It couldn’t be easier. It even refolios the page numbers back to your InDesign documents.
Create layout templates, content types and custom feature sizes
Advertorial, editorial, adverts, full-page, half-page – content within publications varies every issue, so your flat plan needs to be flexible.
The file structure holds your work by client and publication with a template library for saved layouts, ready to quickly produce future issues.
All content types can be drawn, categorised and colour-coded with the name of your advertiser clearly marked on the flat plan, so it’s easy to see what space is available, who has booked it and where bound inserts are being given away.
Refresh, glance and get the picture. Right there.
MANAGE PUBLICATION CONTENT THROUGH ADOBE® INDESIGN®
Creatives are always connected to the flat plan through the GoPublish InDesign plugin
Check artwork into the plan directly from Adobe InDesign
Creative designers using Adobe InDesign save a ton of time with GoPublish.
There’s no need to export PDFs, combine them together and share them around on email or file service.
Designers work on their own InDesign documents in the normal way. When ready, they check them into the plan through the plugin which displays their artwork on the visual for everyone to see.
At the same time, it backs a copy up to the server and auto-creates a PDF for the ad sales team or anyone else to grab from the plan.
Manage page layouts using InDesign documents
The InDesign plugin is the go-between for the .indd documents and the centralised flat plan in GoPublish.
Thanks to the client and issue structure, everything is nicely organised, making it easy to find and open documents from different plans.
Assign issue pages to documents in your pallet. Set start and end dates for submission. Stay updated with real-time updates such as ‘With Editorial’ or ‘Out for Review’ against page artwork.
It’s so efficient, you can forget about the admin and just focus on creating amazing reader experiences.
Refolio, page reordering and versioning done on auto
One of the biggest pains of flat planning – especially for large catalogues – is having to constantly change the folio when pages move around.
GoPublish has got this all sewn up. It’s automatic, reacting to any changes to the flat plan made from inside GoPublish, saving hours in menial design work.
Designers can do it themselves too from the plugin, using a quick update function to update the page numbers after reordering the pages.
And we’ve thrown in a versioning process for InDesign page documents. Designers can easily step back to previous iterations of pages. Neat.
Seamless link into GoProof for review and approval
Getting feedback on publication designs couldn’t be easier.
The Send for Proof option from within the InDesign document opens the link to GoProof, a global leader in proofing and collaboration software that just so happens to be the sister product of Oppolis.
You even proof PDFs, PNGs and videos if you want to discuss briefs or conference call recordings in the same project space.
REVIEW AND APPROVE PUBLICATION ARTWORK WITH GOPROOF
Comment, request changes and sign off flat plan designs together in one place
Pick from 11 proofing tools and add attachments
Collaborators are free to fully express their thoughts and ideas on the proof.
There are 11 proofing tools to choose from including Pin, Draw, Strike, Highlight and Box. The Question tool uses @Mentioning technology to tag in other collaborators, so you can trigger a conversation with them right there.
Comment threads play out and are tracked next to the proof, as is the version history. And if they have a new image or linked document to discuss, they can attach it to their comment to keep all collaboration in one tidy place.
Get visibility of hours worked with Insights
Creative design for publications is not a fast job. Even the slightest of changes can take hours to get right.
Say hello to Insights in GoProof, a reporting engine that tracks all the design time spent on InDesign CC rework and compiles it all into a configurable dashboard.
Dive into a library of stats and view them by client and issue, giving you the chance to compare time spent vs how much you’ve billed them for. Drill down on each of your designers to see which ones are getting good deals and raw deals.
Insights shines a spotlight on your design rework activity, arming you with precious decision-making information to take back to your clients.
REAL-TIME PLAN VISIBILITY FOR SALES TEAMS
Always see what pages are available to sell, move around and proof with clients
Track page targets and sales orders
At the start of any new issue, page targets are set to achieve maximum revenue and diversity of content.
GoPublish helps sales teams plan and execute this with total confidence.
It keeps tabs on pages reserved for advertorials, adverts, inserts and other types of sellable content within the plan interface, with unique reference and sales order numbers.
And once targets are set – say 48 pages of a 96-page magazine – you can see what’s actually been sold against what’s been allocated.
So for example, you may have an Actual of 38 against a target of 48 with 2 days remaining until publication. Go get those last 10 pages sold!
Increase or reduce pages based on demand
It’s so easy to reconfigure issue layouts to meet client or management demands.
Sales staff can ask administrators to add more pages into the plan when they exceed advert targets, which they can do in just a couple of clicks.
Conversely, if expectations are overly-ambitious, pages can easily be deleted from the plan and any content types changed or moved around to retain the positive flow of the issue.
It’s quick and flexible, improving sales, editorial and production team collaboration.
TRACK PRODUCTION WORK USING GOPUBLISH
Editorial teams can manage extra jobs required by production from inside projects
View the history and creative journey of pages
When jobs or tasks are carried out, a history is built up of the journey from allocation to completion.
GoPublish users can view the trail in a pop-up window list with thumbnail artwork alongside, making it a cinch to see the changes made by each production work centre.
Version numbers are retained and a PDF can be exported with a single click for closer inspection.
Charge tasks to cost centres
No-one works for free!
Many jobs that seem simple require extra work that carries an incremental cost to the production department.
Tasks can be marked as chargeable by production, so accounts can analyse the project and allocate project charges across the cost centres to match the effort.
Credit where credit’s due.
