Only one click away: Mega Flyout navigation

Namics managed to fulfill the wish for fast information gathering using the sophisticated MatchPoint Metadata management. This allows for easy content aggregation and faceted search. The developed mega flyout navigation presents all relevant products and navigation entries in one view.

There, they can collect, personalize and print all publications. This way they are able to create client specific files with very few clicks.
