Matrix based Grid Organizer

In many cases having simply a tree based catalogue organizer can be limiting. We came up with the grid organizer concept to give you more flexibility for organizing products.

A grid organizer is simply a fixed grid - that you can define. A number of rows and columns. You can also decide the size of the different grid cells.

The grid is designed as a semantic grid where you can apply the meaning that fits your case. It is possible to add meta information to the different cells.

Here are a few examples of what you can use grid organizers for:

  • Point of Sale (POS) display of products on a fixed grid for the cash registry
  • Grouping of the most important products from a sub-tree
  • A Christmas calendar with 24 cells in a grid
