For Cuisine magazine, Flat-Plan has been a godsend. I have been using it for a few years now, but it is lately while our country has been in a massive lockdown (we are New Zealand-based) that it’s been even more valuable. We are a small team working remotely, so being able to share updates on production, advert placement, pagination etc across the team all in one place is really easy and very helpful.
Flat Plan allows our team to plan each issue of VIPY magazine in advance, and change pages, ads and stories around as needed until we have a final page layout. Our team members are located all around the world, so Flat Plan works collaboratively and allows us to see issues planned from any geographic location. Flat Plan is a key part of our print production.
I was really impressed with the ease of use of flat-plan. I edit a monthly magazine which normally includes a complicated directory in the middle which can be fiddly and time-consuming to move around content and ads. With flat-plan this is done in seconds.
We use the service to plan and organize the content of our magazine, and to keep track of the status of every article and every ad. Flat-Plan is easy to use and powerful, a tool that helps us save time and collaborate much, much better. Our business, organized, in an instant. That’s Flat-Plan.
Our magazine, Luzes, is a 100-page monthly publication, in which graphic design and literary content are very important. Our collaborators are in very diverse places, and for this reason it is necessary to have a good control of the reception and process of contents until the printing. Of all the planning software we have tested, Flat-Plan is the one that has given us the best result, due to its adaptability and simplicity.
We use Flat plan since may years. At the early beginning, it was just for one magazine and one user. Now we edit 3 magazines per month and all the extras. Flat plan is a useful, simple and quite cheap solution to interact with many users, and to success on the publications production process.
The Flat-Plan product has taken the hassle out of flatplanning, turning what used to be an onerous chore into a pleasurable task. Also the support from the team is excellent, swiftly getting back to me with any queries I’ve had.

I have used many publishing layout programs but find Flat-Plan the most simple to use and effective. There are nominated areas on each page to specify the editorial section, subsections and advertisements. Pages are easily moved, swapped, inserted and deleted. Color coding sections is also beneficial, as is the automated percentage content calculator and number of advertisements featured. Best of all, it is affordable. Well done. I am a fan.

Flat-Plan helps with the organization and production of each of our issues. It’s a great tool that provides a clear understanding of the editorial and ad divisions of each issue. One thing I would like to see improved is the size at which you view it on screen and the size at which you print it out. Other than that we enjoy using the product each month.

Great tool which I already used for another publication. Loved to come back and the variety for ads is even bigger than before.
