Automated file packaging workflow for Adobe InDesign

Package Central is a powerful packaging automation solution for Adobe InDesign which processes InDesign files from hotfolders. Package Central offloads file collection from InDesign to a central system leaving operator stations free from the packaging process.

WHAT IT DOES

cb

Package Central offloads InDesign document packaging to a central system leaving operator workstations free from the packaging process.

With Package Central, production artists, prepress operators and designers simply submit (or copy) files to hotfolders that reside on the network. Package Central automatically collects the files on its station, and will auto-activate fonts as well. Operator workstations will never again be tied up by the packaging process.

HOW IT WORKS

cb

> Users choose the Submit to Package Central command instead of Package (or just copy file in the Finder)

> The document with its fonts is copied to the selected Package Central hotfolders

cb

> Package Central is installed on a dedicated station and runs absolutely unattended

> It automatically packages (collects) files according to the hotfolder settings

> Package Central automatically activates the document fonts (when supplied)

EASY TO INSTALL

cb

Installation of the Package Central Workflow is simple:

> Put Package Central in the Applications folder on its dedicated station - no plug-ins required

> Run the Components installer on the user stations to install the required software automatically

Workflows

Workflow is a group of output settings assigned to Package Central hotfolders.

bos

Hotfolders

Hotfolders reside on server volumes available to other computers on the network. Users copy (or submit) InDesign files to hotfolders watched by Package Central. The InDesign files in hotfolders are processed automatically using the assigned workflow settings.

Automatic Error Handling

Package Central checks files for basic problems during processing and can skip files when missing links or fonts and other errors are detected.

bos

E-mail Notifications

Package Central can send automatic e-mail notifications during processing. Notifications are triggered by user defined events, such as errors, font activation, process stages and others.

XMP Variables

 

Package Central has a state of the art XML processing engine built-in. It allows users to base some variable folder names on InDesign XMP metadata. This powerful feature is enabled through XMP Variables, which define how specific XMP tags should be used.
