(UPM, Helsinki, 7 May 2012) – UPM’s service offering for its paper customers has been extended by launching a modern, easy-to-use Online Paper Catalogue which is now available both in English and German. Furthermore, a mobile version of the paper catalogue will be tested at drupa 2012 trade fair and it will be in full use later this year.

The new Online Paper Catalogue:

  • allows approaching UPM papers from different angles e.g. end-use, grade, finish etc
  • provides you with the latest product information – always up-to-date
  • goes hand-in-hand with the printed product catalogue
  • enables easy printing of product fact sheets

“Users decide for themselves how they want to read UPM’s product information: in the printed catalogue, online or, perhaps also on their mobile phone. We want to ensure that up-to-date information is always available, regardless of the channel,” says Laura Kuusinen, Digital Communications Manager at UPM Paper Business Group.

Mobile Paper Catalogue v.0.1

In addition to the Online Paper Catalogue for PCs, UPM Paper has taken the first step to enter into the constantly evolving mobile world by launching the 0.1 version of the Mobile Paper Catalogue – http://m.upmpaper.com

“With this version 0.1 we will both test the technical functionality of the mobile catalogue and collect feedback from the users.  Based on the feedback we will specify functionalities for the next version,” says Kuusinen.

New ways of combining different channels

UPM believes in the co-existence of the digital and print media. We are constantly looking for new innovative ways of combining different channels. The current mobile revolution provides many interesting opportunities for paper. Paper has become a gateway to exciting experiences.
