How CHILI publisher differs from Canva Enterprise

Canva Enterprise is a well known, simple SaaS solution for design teams. But for high-volume design-variant workflows, you’ll need a robust engine with an open API like CHILI publisher. CHILI publisher is uniquely suited to large-scale, multichannel marketing.

Create & edit designs the way you want

Multiple options for document creation.

  • CHILI publisher’s completely customizable editor meets the needs and skills of any user.
  • The editor makes creating and personalizing artwork as easy as filling in a form or importing a spreadsheet.
  • A comprehensive API integrates with your DAM, CMS, CRM, PIM, etc., enabling creation of customized artwork directly from these systems!

Next-level document intelligence

Intelligent document processing guarantees design quality and brand identity at high volume.

  • CHILI publisher imports from sources like DAM, PIM, CRM or spreadsheets, delivering variable content and design choices simultaneously.
  • Variables and conditional logic provide single-click changes to multiple design and content elements such as image, product name, color scheme, price, etc.
  • Granular controls allow easy setting of document object-level controls for all user interactions.
  • Dynamic layouts streamline repurposing assets for today’s high volume, multichannel marketing with any number of variants required.

Further document intelligence includes:

  • Alternate layouts - Create standardized layouts, sizes, etc. for different purposes, regions or channels (such as A4 vs. US Letter).
  • Smart crop - Ensure design elements don’t shift unpredictably during automated repurposing.
