[prMac.com] Toronto, Ontario, Canada - Zevrix Solutions today announces BatchOutput 3.11.2, a maintenance update to its popular professional solution to automate printing, exporting and post-processing from Adobe InDesign. Developed originally for one of the largest ad agencies in Canada to boost productivity of its prepress department, BatchOutput automates and simplifies workflow of printers, service providers and publishing houses.
The new update addresses some issues related to export of non-consecutive range of InDesign spreads as single files, and improves logging of certain events during processing. The updated is recommended to all BatchOutput users.
"BatchOutput has been the single biggest time-saver I've encountered in ten years of print production," says Mike Agate, Head of Contents Production of Which?, Europe's largest consumer rights organization. "Easily saves hours a week, producing bullet-proof PDFs, over and over... With the reduction in head count and efficiency savings, it must have paid for itself 500 times over."
BatchOutput is not just a plug-in - it's a workflow solution that interacts with Acrobat Pro preflight engine, provides file delivery capabilities and integrates fully with the Finder. Users can keep working with other programs while BatchOutput processes InDesign files in the background. Or they can let it work while they're on a lunch break or leave it working overnight to output hundreds of documents and the job will be done when they return in the morning.
BatchOutput supports printing as well as exporting to PDF, PostScript, EPS, Flash, INX, IDML and various image formats.
