FusionPro Direct, Desktop 4.0, and FusionPro Live Beta.
Printable Technologies has announced FusionPro Direct, a product for automating workflows with high-volume VDP document composition. Requiring no programming to implement, FusionPro Direct accepts VDP composition requests from FusionPro Desktop (see below) and routes, schedules, and executes the document composition on a separate server. FusionPro Direct frees up designers"? workstations from document composition processing while giving users options for e-mail notification and automatic output delivery to RIP hot folders.
And the company has introduced a beta program for its new FusionPro Live. This product provides a point-and-click VDP template-editing capability as an add-on to the FusionPro Server application. FusionPro Desktop templates can be uploaded to the FusionPro Live server with settings to allow editing of the contents of selected variable frames by the end user, or an unlimited number of concurrent users.
