Enfocus has released Connect 11.2, a free of charge product line upgrade bringing full compatibility with OS X Mavericks, Apple's recently released operating system, to current Connect customers. Enfocus Connect ensures creation of print-ready, top-quality PDFs by design and production professionals, and can automatically deliver completed jobs to printers (and anyone else, as needed).
The release of Connect 11 update 2 makes the entire Enfocus Connect Family - Connect YOU, Connect SEND and Connect ALL - compatible with the latest mainstream operating systems, including OS X 10.9 (Mavericks), Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2. Along with support for the new OS's, Enfocus has also updated its supporting plug-ins for Adobe Creative Suite and Creative Cloud™ products.
A Better Way to Take Control of PDF Creation and Production
Enfocus Connect solves one of the biggest issues affecting the production process today: poor quality PDFs. Most designers do not know how to adjust settings to create high quality PDFs, and this causes frustration and delays in production. Printers who receive these PDFs are spending too much time and resources identifying - and then, fixing - the PDF problems.
To serve customers faced with these challenges, Enfocus created the Connect family of products, with each of 3 solutions designed to assist users in different aspects of the production process. Enfocus Connect YOU is for individual users (primarily designers). Enfocus Connect ALL and Enfocus Connect SEND were both developed for companies that need to collaborate with many internal and external users.
How Connect Works
The Enfocus Connect application defines and creates applets called Connectors. These Connector applets include all the technology required to automatically perform such functions as creating a certified PDF, PDF preflight, or automatically delivering job files to a remote server. Depending on the version of Enfocus Connect, Connectors can be used on the local workstation or distributed to internal or external users freely.
Fabian Prudhomme, Vice President of Enfocus, says: "In listening to our customers, Enfocus clearly heard the challenges poor quality PDFs were creating for the graphic arts industry. We knew there was a better way to manage the production process, and that is what led us to the development of the Enfocus Connect family. Making this technology compatible with OS X Mavericks and other operating systems ensures that customers can continue to enjoy the improved quality Enfocus Connect brings to both their PDFs and to their organizations."
