Benefits of using vjoon K4
True Multi-Channel Clients
Editors, designers or marketers start a story and create structured content within a central client. Then easily adapt or adjust content to publish on any print or digital channel. Provide different renditions or variants of the same object automatically. Create, improve or review any content while increasing visibility into your production progress.
Your team can draw on Adobe Creative Cloud’s entire toolbox as well as Microsoft® Office products.
Collaborate and Communicate
Global teams work together and communicate using one system. Write, design, edit photos, review and approve simultaneously and collaboratively. Send and receive messages or emails and request content to be reviewed. Attach sticky notes to layouts for a visual communication approach.
Access an overview of your publication in a password-protected browser client, that immediately shows the status of your topic, your publication or your project.
Automate and Integrate
A publishing system is usually only part of a much more complex production environment. A Web Services API provides flexible and comprehensive access to vjoon K4 for third-party systems, including page-planning and DAM systems as well as solutions for single sign-on.
Additionally, pre-configured automations allow for the import and export of data, the output in certain formats or the control of third-party systems, for example for image processing, translations, font management or digital platforms.
