Package Central is a packaging automation solution for Adobe InDesign, which processes InDesign files from watched hot folders. Package Central offloads file collection from InDesign to a central system leaving operator stations free from the packaging process.
With Package Central, production artists, prepress operators and designers simply copy files to hot folders that reside on a network. Package Central then automatically collects the files on its station. Operator machines will never again be tied up by the packaging process.
Package Central runs on a dedicated machine and watches hot folders linked to its workflow settings. The app performs all its tasks automatically and can run absolutely unattended.
Create PDF and IDML on the fly
Package Central can automatically export InDesign documents as PDF and IDML files.
Automatic error handling
Package Central can skip files with missing links, fonts and other errors.
Package Central can send automatic email notifications during processing. Notifications can be triggered by errors, font activation, process stages and other events.
Variable folder names
Package Central offers variable package folder names based on date, document contents, XMP data and other components.
