Our services include the planning of complex server architecture in the area of cloud services, the creation of dynamic web applications with a focus on sales and marketing, the implementation and adaptation of content management systems as well as the constant further development of web-to-print based on InDesign Server and Web-to-Publish solution ci-book™.
Consulting InDesign Server
d-serv GmbH specializes in the adaptation and programming of InDesign server solutions in the areas of marketing and sales. We’re improving the process of creating custom ads, marketing collateral, and financial reports. Our experience in the development of dynamic document solutions ensures the optimal integration of the Adobe InDesign Server into the operational process flow of your company.
Our project managers accompany our customers in all project phases (pre-project, conception phase, realization and roll-out phase). You ensure that customer-specific requirements are implemented and documented. In addition, they ensure that budgets and quality promises are met. They are available to advise and support our customers with interface projects. If necessary, tasks for the assignment to third parties are also developed by our project managers.
Software engineering is our core competence. As an Adobe Silver Solution Partner, we offer consulting and development around Flex, Flash, Air or InDesign server customization. We support you in the conception and development of your projects and implement your ideas – quickly, efficiently and reliably.
Web Application Engineering
Web applications are software solutions based on internet technology. This means that they can be used extensively via numerous, up-to-date web browsers. There are many areas of application where the use of web applications is almost essential:
- Central document and knowledge management.
- Marketing and communication management with sales partners.
- Purchasing systems for dealers with merchandise management and warehouse connection.
- Information systems for dealer networks.
- Order goods and services with access to cost calculations and stock levels.
- Automatic processing of orders.
- resource management.
- Customer relationship management with links to company websites.
Quality Assurance and Training
Especially in connection with our product ci-book™, our design department examines incoming layout templates from a web-to-print point of view. Our design department can also take over and enter the layout, typesetting and final artwork. In addition, our employees train agencies, graphic designers, customers, etc. in the processing, management, quality assurance of layout templates and, if necessary, in Adobe InDesign.
Adjustments and Modifications
The so-called “branding” of our products and web applications is a matter of course. Both our web-to-print or web-to-publish solution ci-book™ can be adapted to the »look & feel« of the brand in the corresponding edition, as can our web applications resulting from projects or individual orders. This includes, among other things, the development and implementation of website templates based on style guides or the complete adoption of any existing designs for user interfaces.

Maintenance and Updates
After an application created by us has been installed and approved by you, we will of course not leave you alone with it. After the end of a project or the successful completion of an order, we are at your disposal with our support for questions about use, maintenance of content and technical updates.
The framework conditions in your IT environment are constantly changing and applications should be adapted accordingly. The application may be so successful that the number of users has to be increased or that the application needs to be modified and expanded. Or you want to use the same or similar applications for another business area. In this case, too, we will be happy to assist you with our advisory services.
