STREAM – Klopotek’s platform that makes publishing easy and intuitive

STREAM is Klopotek’s platform for user interaction across computers and portable devices. Focused on supporting key business processes in a smart and simple way, Klopotek STREAM provides an excellent user experience (UX). It is web-based and integrates with the Klopotek Classic Line solution.

We have developed and are continuously developing Java-based apps to support your workflow, which run on the Klopotek STREAM platform.

Applications running on Klopotek STREAM can easily be adapted to your specific requirements. Thin and smart, the applications are based on the same database and business rules as our Classic Line solution but provide a role-based and simplified user experience for handling specific tasks.

Enabling you to work with the same entities as your Classic Line solution, Klopotek STREAM provides fantastic usability on laptops, tablets, and smartphones.

Complete essential business tasks wherever you are, whenever you’re connected to the internet, and enjoy an interactive user experience guiding you through an easy-to-use and simple workflow, visually clear on any device.

 

STREAM intuitively guides users through their day-to-day business operations. STREAM does not only improve working in (international) teams, it will highly increase user and employee satisfaction.


Our central, multiple business process-specific web apps provide complete 360° views on the information in the key areas of publishing you deal with every day. The 360° view apps come with a blazing-fast search functionality and are the perfect entry points for managing and modifying data.

All key processes in the area of handling contracts, rights, and royalties are available in the STREAM for CRR solution. Essential tasks in the areas of CRM, O2C, and TEP (title management, editorial, and production) can be handled using a wide range of STREAM apps. We are continuously working on expanding our STREAM portfolio.

I have been extremely impressed from day one with an ever-increasing appreciation of the planning and development that went into making STREAM a reality.

The GUI is clean and quick; the development is 100% user-based with the goal of ease of searching, reviewing, and updating.

Two ways to support the user in the most intuitive way

Two ways to support the user in the most intuitive way

STREAM offers two ways to look at, manage and maintain data - always with the user’s needs defining the user interface.

  • The workflow-driven approach with fixed views; the system guides the user step-by-step intuitively through the workflow and the business processes they have to fulfill 

  • The fully user-configurable  360 views on data, where information from various fields can be put together in one single overall

STREAM: built-in ergonomic features

All STREAM applications follow the same user interface guidelines to achieve homogeneous navigation and usability. General features are:

 

  • Responsive web design

  • Scalability

  • Themes are available for different contrast ratios

  • Central Navigation

  • User-specific entity lists

  • Unified search functionality

STREAM incorporates the general principles of the web content accessibility guidelines (WCAG, released by W3C) regarding the UI, UX and QA.

Klopotek STREAM UI - Page Structure and Central Navigation (EN)

Most page structures are displayed according to an 8-to-4 or 7-to-5 balance between two columns to support the natural reception between the ‘main content’ and ‘additional content’ – this principle relates to the “Golden Ratio” and how human perception reacts with tension or balance to certain ratios. It helps to guide the user’s attention to information and makes the interface more intuitive and improves readability. The page header shows the entities’ main identifiers (title, ISBN, contract no.) and central interactions (bookmarking, uploads, editing). A page head often highlights the most important entity information to give a fast overview and access data quickly. Vertical and horizontal tabs can structure a page to make each information more perceivable and easier to manage (vertical tabs indicate a sequence while horizontal tabs list parallel content). Content items and forms are structured in blocks, clearly indicated by headlines or sub headlines Red headlines indicate a main block. Honey-colored headlines indicate a section (often also structured using a side border) Grey headlines indicate a sub section. Specific important information (such as status, due dates, deadlines) is highlighted in ‘boxes’ to which different color schemes can be applied (to indicate warnings or alerts). Additional elements linked to the entity are often listed in own sections on the right-hand side panel (such as products, contacts, etc.). The applications offer direct jump-out functionality and links to these entities. The footer displays the roles and information of the user who is logged in, central navigation functions such as go back or scroll up, and the application’s version dialog.

Experience our apps in a new look

Introducing STREAM Night

In order to support different contrast ratios, STREAM applications provide three different contrast themes, two different color schemes, and now STREAM Night, a dark mode offering new usability.

 

With these themes, the applications are compliant with the web content accessibility guidelines defined by W3C (Chapter 1.4 Distinguishable). The selected theme is saved as a user-specific configuration.
