Brunswick, November 27, 2012 – The new ‘locr maps Batch’ tool supports variable data printing (VDP) with print-optimized maps, which can be used as an effective response booster with in direct mailings and other individualized marketing projects. Depending on the project size, locr provides various ways to create individualized maps. For the regular downloading of small to medium-sized numbers of maps, locr now offers the new ‘locr maps Batch’ tool, which makes it possible for customers to quickly and easily create their own individualized locr maps.
Visit the batch.locr.com website to sign up for ‘locr maps Batch’ at any time. After registering, you will receive your login details to be able to use the ‘locr maps Batch’ tool. You will be guided through the map creation process step by step. Throughout the process, the user receives tips and hints, beginning with the upload of addresses and finally the download of the finished maps. After creating a project, the map images can be downloaded and by using an appropriate VDP software, they can be implemented into individualized document templates for printing.
Thanks to locr server technology, creating maps is both time and cost-efficient. Using the appropriate interface, it is possible to render the maps simultaneously. Just as with the project processing, ‘locr maps Batch’ processing also utilizes the tried and tested geodata content from NAVTEQ and ensures coverage in over 100 countries around the world. The configuration of various individualization options is also included in the batch processing.
“Our intention with this new ‘locr maps Batch’ tool is to offer our partners a way to create and download their own maps for their ongoing projects, thus allowing partners a versatile way to respond to project requirements very quickly. For large projects, special requests or unique map projects, we are of course available to manage projects as in the past,” commented Thomas Schnettler from Business Development at locr GmbH.
To use the tool for production, users must purchase one of the credit packages for creating maps. Before creating maps, users are asked whether they want to download the complete map content for a charge or only a small portion free of charge, which can then be used for testing purposes. This way, customers can check the map configuration in advance for their project. Next, all maps can be fully downloaded after deducting the amount from the account balance. The batch tool is now available from the locr website mentioned above.
