The Simply Powerful Layout System

PowerPlan is the publication planning tool to produce efficient, and visually stunning publications in no time at all. PowerPlan handles complicated advertisement booking requests to accommodate even the most complex publications. PowerPlan's sophisticated placement engine creates layouts with surgical precision.

Late Ad Support

PowerPlan can be used to build a layout incrementally throughout the billing cycle.

Precision Layout

PowerPlan utilizes industry standards for ad placement including gravity, page position, color position, coupon placement, and multi-page items.

Tight Design

Flexible Format

PowerPlan accepts multiple page formats in a layout including different numbers of columns, as well as row-based layout for true modular design.

Ad Repels

Paper Models

PowerPlan can define and maintain a library of fixed pages, templates, and press configurations that specify color positions, and physical section layout.


PowerPlan imports advertisement booking requests from all major third-party advertising order entry systems, as well as exports ad geometry and placement information directly into all major third-party pagination solutions including QuarkXPress, Adobe InDesign, and Scribus. In addition, PowerPlan natively exports advertising and publication information for a complete electronic workflow.

Item Tracking
