Automation capabilities of DALIM SOFTWARE's new ES2 is extended with the integration of TWIST 6.3
(Press Release) Kehl, Germany, January 26, 2011—DALIM SOFTWARE, makers of highly efficient, scalable software solutions for the creation, production and management of cross-media content, has released its latest version of ES 2, their streamlined customer-facing environment and TWIST 6.3, the award-winning workflow engine.
Previewed at Graph Expo 2010 in Chicago, ES 2 now utilizes the nearly unlimited production workflow features of TWIST Engine to extend its color-accurate virtual soft proofing, the business logic of collaborative project management, and sophisticated approval cycles with fully automated prepress processes. ES 2 lets users maximize the benefits derived from the combination of technical multi-channel content production with the collaborative business workflow of marketing and media service companies.
Every project typically consists of many milestones and their associated deadlines. Documents need to be created or edited and passed along to the right people, at the right time -- and that business workflow must be prepared accordingly. Steps can include the first artwork draft that needs to be converted into a specific format, a PDF file that requires preflighting, color management and trapping that is developed after client approval, or the creation of final output with project information metadata. TWIST Engine enables the creation of all these dynamic, event-driven tasks at every stage of the process, increasing productivity by eliminating manual labor.
The list of new ES 2 features includes a built-in FTP server for file delivery and a reverse flat plan view for projects created for Asian markets. Many user management and system control features and enhancements have been added for use by corporate and brand management groups.
As part of the release, the interactive 'compare' feature of DIALOGUE Engine, the optional ES2 soft proofing component, has been updated. Some usersmight choose the new, but more traditional method of checking differences in a document by a side-by-side comparison. Others can review changes between revisions by using the dynamic comparison controller that automatically shows changes between documents.
