MadeToPrint Auto and K4 Publishing System Live at 30 Sites

Increased Production Security for Editorial Workflows based on Adobe InDesign.

Hamburg/Berlin, Germany (PRWEB) September 24, 2005 -- In December 2004, callas software and SoftCare announced a strategic alliance to increase production speed and workflow security by integrating MadeToPrint Auto for Adobe InDesign with K4 Publishing System. In January, the first site went live with this integration. Today, ten months after the announcement, already a third of all K4 sites use MadeToPrint Auto K4 and are thrilled by the efficiency they gained.

"Thanks to the installation of MadeToPrint Auto, we were able to virtually eliminate errors," says Marco Heuberger, Head of IT PrePress, at AVD Goldach. "We use K4 and MadeToPrint very flexibly to further automate and standardize production workflows."

With the seamless integration, output jobs such as creation of PDF files can be triggered at any step in the workflow. They are processed automatically on a server by MadeToPrint Auto K4 according to pre-defined print sets, and users are informed of output results directly in InDesign.

"In K4, users can immediately view return information from MadeToPrint Auto. This enables us to have total control at every workstation and to streamline our production in order to make it faster and more efficient," adds Marco Heuberger. "Today, we can hardly imagine working without MadeToPrint Auto K4."

"Our goal is to spare users tedious and repetitive tasks by automating print jobs," says Olaf Dr? CEO of callas software. "SoftCare is an ideal partner in that they have an excellent grasp of the requirements for secure and efficient publishing workflows and a knack for turning this knowledge into reliable and extremely well-designed software."

Publishers using K4 with MadeToPrint Auto include City Repro, Spektrum der Wissenschaft and Verlagsgruppe Milchstrasse in Germany, Seitenblicke Magazine in Austria, and AVD Goldach in Switzerland.

K4 Publishing System and MadeToPrint Auto are available from certified K4 System Integrators worldwide.
