Millions of published pages have been produced with the core technology. Catalog-on-Demand supports a wide range of workflows.
Founded in 1993, OPS is a privately-held company headquartered in Seattle, Washington. It developed its core publishing technology in partnership with 3M, one of the largest and most innovative manufacturers in the world. OPS grew quickly through sales of licensed database publishing solutions to dozens of mid- and large-sized companies. Industries include industrial wholesale, office furniture, marine supply, automotive parts, chemical supply, dental supply, appliance parts, scientific equipment, telecommunications, higher education, publishing, and others.
Long before others were even aware of the concept, OPS was preparing for the coming revolution presented by the idea of "software as a service". OPS recognized that most enterprise software solutions of the 1990's were far too expensive and difficult for IT departments to manage. By 2000, OPS began shifting to a business model that centered on Internet-based hosting of sophisticated automated publishing solutions. Its flagship service was named Catalog-on-Demand®. In contrast to its earlier emphasis on mid- to large-sized companies, the new web service model was targeted at businesses of all sizes.
For small businesses that need to be up and running quickly, there are three versions of Catalog-on-Demand: Flyer Edition, Brochure Edition, and Catalog Edition. Please visit our home page for additional information, links, and pricing.
For companies with unique needs, OPS offers tailored enterprise solutions. For more than 18 years we have been helping companies grow sales through custom publishing.
