Product 360°

Product 360° provides a complete 360° view on all product information to the various functional types of users in your organization with a fully configurable, widget-based layout.

It links directly to Klopotek’s system-wide Product Pool but can also retrieve information from applications outside of Klopotek (e.g. show stock information from a distributor).

Product 360° runs on Klopotek STREAM, a cloud-based platform for optimized user interaction on computers and mobile devices.

The state-of-the-art keyword search functionality of the app includes cover thumbnails of titles. Recent activities are stored, and ‘top titles’ can be bookmarked.

Customize and arrange widgets to create your personal dashboard

The overall look and feel of every dashboard can be individualized, providing high-level to granular information based on the needs of role and responsibilities of the individual user. You can choose from a variety of widgets to be included in your dashboard. Many of them come with configuration options. The layout of widgets has been designed to present their content in the most efficient way.

Widgets of the following types can be added to your dashboard:

  • Labeled list widgets
  • Grid-style widgets
  • Full-text widgets for single marketing blurbs 
  • Overview widgets for marketing blurbs
  • Widgets which show titles in context and provide navigation possibilities (e.g. for product families, set relations, series, etc  .)
  • Widgets that present data in a graphical view

More of the same can have a huge impact 

Product 360° allows you to add the same widget to your dashboard more than once. For example, the ‘Sales and Returns’ widget can be configured to get the related information from the Klopotek statistics database for 2015, and a second ‘Sales and Returns’ widget can display the information for 2014 next to it or below it. Comparing data becomes easy and straightforward.

Configuring is simple but effective: examples for various roles

The text widgets can be modified to either show a list of available texts (clicking on the items in the list will open the files) or individual ones. At many publishers, the sales team will need an overview of available texts, while for people in Marketing, the author bio might be the most important information which should always be displayed at the top.

The same is the case for the ‘Classifications’ widget: users can choose which one(s) to focus on. A member of the Sales team is likely to be interested in an internal classification which displays various types of sales information, while someone in Marketing who works for the US market might want to see the BISAC information at the top of the dashboard.

The ‘Prices (per copy)’ widget, which gets data from the standard price list, can be changed to include prices from the past, if desired.
