Traditionally, moving one item on a flatplan has meant unpicking everything, reassembling it and redistributing around the office. But drop a stitch with VIP and you won’t have to knit the whole jumper again. With your flatplan hosted on-line in a single secure location, multiple users can simply drag and drop content around the plan. The results can be shared by everyone without delay, and updated again and again.
VIP's live statistics takes number juggling in it's stride and means you'll never drop the ball. Keeping a track on advert totals, editorial totals and more, statistics allows the whole team to assess at a glance the status of the flatplan and avoid nasty surprises when deadlines loom.
VIP's live online flatplan makes printing paper copies a thing of the past. VIP is always available to the team and changes are broadcast instantly. However if you're on the move and can't reach the internet the print flatplan feature is at hand. Allowing export to friendly PDF format you can email or print a pin sharp rendition of the flatplan viewable on the train or plane, any day, any time.
