Established for over 30 years, Promed is at the forefront of innovative change in Patient Centred Care in Ireland. Lockside began working with Promed in 2007 and have worked with their marketing team to help them produce their catalogs as quickly an efficiently as possible. Catalogs are never easy but in the medical world attention to detail is critical and data accuracy is essential.
Despite a new e-commerce site where practitioners can search and browse for products, Promed recognises the importance of catalogs. For many years Promed successfully used a system written in-house but needed to shorten the production cycle and reduce the work involved. Their search for a new system narrowed to two companies that matched the required features and budget. Lockside’s Catalog’nTime was selected because it delivers flexibility and a high level of automation. They were particularly impressed both by the support for high level typography and design and the sophisticated table building and styling.
Most forward-looking companies want to be able to use the same content for web and catalogue. Promed wanted this and more. They already had a studio and were used to a digital workflow. For that reason the implementation was particularly fast with the first catalogue starting within days of the contract being signed. The software was installed and populated inside two days, ready for training to start. 

The productivity has exceeded expectations and is in line with Lockside’s claim to do the job in half the time. Lockside kept their pledge of providing total support ensuring that everything was on track and that catalogs went out on time.
