Industry Solution: Manufacturing & Technical Communication

Providing accurate product information to customers, distributors and staff is crucial. As consumers increasingly expect information to be immediately available in a range of print and digital formats, maintaining accuracy of fast-changing product data across multiple platforms presents a very real and significant challenge.

Typefi has been working with manufacturers for over a decade, building and implementing powerful publishing solutions that completely eliminate manual typesetting errors, and which slash production times—and costs—by up to 80%.

By utilising structured product information stored in enterprise databases, content management systems, websites, or Microsoft Excel, your team can use Typefi to rapidly and accurately produce parts and price lists, technical instruction manuals, and beautifully-designed catalogues with 100% accuracy and as many formats as you need with just the single click of a button.



Typefi is a user-friendly, single-source publishing platform that fully automates print, online and mobile production in a seamless, end-to-end automated workflow.
