[prMac.com] Toronto (ON), Canada - Zevrix Solutions today is pleased to announce the immediate release of BatchOutput 3.12, a feature 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 version automates electronic publication production from InDesign CS4 and later. With just a click of a button, users now can export dozens of documents to the EPUB format using the current InDesign settings.
"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 output, over and over... With the reduction in head count and efficiency savings, it must have paid for itself 500 times over."
BatchOutput is more than 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, EPUB and several image formats. It offers the following key features:
* Print and export hundreds of InDesign files with a single click
* Output files as single pages
* Update links automatically
* Assign complex variable file names
* Preflight final PDF automatically with Acrobat Pro droplets
* Send output files over Internet and locally with email notifications
BatchOutput is also available in a server version which processes InDesign files automatically from hot folders.
