Zevrix Solutions announces Package Central 1.7, a compatibility update to its document packaging workflow automation solution for Adobe InDesign. Originally developed for a major publisher in the United States, the software automates InDesign packaging by processing files from hotfolders. Package Central offloads file packaging to a central system leaving operator workstations free from the document collection process.
The new version makes Package Central compatible with the recently released InDesign CC featured as part of Creative Cloud. The update is free for licensed users of Package Central.
Under Package Central workflow, production artists, prepress operators and designers simply submit files to hotfolders that reside on the network. Package Central automatically collects the files from its station using hotfolder settings, and will auto-activate document fonts as well. Operator workstations will never again be tied up by the packaging process.
Package Central runs on a dedicated machine and watches hotfolders linked to its workflow settings. The software performs all its tasks automatically and can run absolutely unattended. It offers the following key features and benefits:
-Automatically collect InDesign files from hotfolders
-Update modified links automatically
-Create PDF and IDML files on the fly
-Automatic e-mail notifications of process stages and errors
-Compose variable folder names
-Detailed processing logs
