LinkOptimizer Server for Adobe InDesign Adds Hot Folder Automation

October 6, 2020 in Publishing (E)

[] Toronto (ON), Canada - Zevrix Solutions today announces the release of LinkOptimizer Server, a multi-user version of company's workflow automation tool for Adobe InDesign. LinkOptimizer automates complex image manipulation tasks and lets users reduce the size of InDesign links, convert images, assign color profiles and more. The app can save users countless hours - and even days - of manual processing through automation of repetitive tasks multiplied by centralized hot folder operations.

LinkOptimizer Server is not a standalone tool but an integral part of Zevrix Output Factory Server - the company's long-running solution to automate InDesign's printing and exporting from watched hot folders. LinkOptimizer will now take advantage of the existing and time-proven hot folder facilities of Output Factory Server that automate workflows of printers, publishers, ad agencies, and prepress houses worldwide for well over a decade.

Long requested by LinkOptimizer customers, the new server version will be able to serve unlimited InDesign users on a network from a single installation via watched hot folders. And as LinkOptimizer becomes a part of Output Factory Server, users will be empowered to combine LinkOptimizer processing with standard output workflows such as PDF, print, EPUB and other formats. For example, customers will have an option to resize, convert and relink images by LinkOptimizer - and then export the optimized InDesign file to PDF automatically in one step. The operator only needs to drop the InDesign file into a single hot folder that invokes the multi-workflow processing.

The final combined product branded as Output Factory Server 3 will also enable InDesign workgroups to convert image link formats, resize and crop images to their InDesign dimensions, output InDesign layers and their combinations as single files, assign variable file names, perform automatic preflighting, issue email notifications and much more.

Pricing and Availability:
Output Factory Server 3 with built-in LinkOptimizer Server can be purchased from Zevrix web site for $699.95 (USD), as well as from authorized resellers. Trial is also available for download. The upgrade cost is $350 for the licensed users of earlier Output Factory Server versions and BatchOutput Server. LinkOptimizer users can get a $200 discount. Output Factory Server requires macOS 10.12 or later and Adobe InDesign CC 2018-2020.
