Custom Software Solutions

Over the years we have developed many custom solutions for publishing workflows. Drawing on these assets and our experience allows us to dramatically shorten the amount of time it takes to implement a custom automation.

  • XML Data Bridge.
    Connect InDesign pages to a database or content management system. The XML Data Bridge solution connects databases and other data sources to InDesign in two directions. First, InDesign page data (prices, descriptions, SKU, etc.) can be linked to external data sources, allowing the latest information to be imported at a moment’s notice with formats intact. Reversing direction, sections of the InDesign or InCopy document can be marked and exported to various database servers or XML files. Additional options exist to standardize article content for reproduction on the web.
