Zumedia Software Releases Automata 1.5
Automata 1.5 combines the creativity of Adobe Illustrator, the power of databases and the speed of automation to generate multiple files based on a template that can be either printed or saved to file – at up to 1500 fph (files per hour). By merging an Illustrator file (containing place holders) with a data source (typically a text file containing content information) you can print the files to any printer or save in any or all of seven file formats (Adobe Illustrator, PDF, EPS, PDF, GIF, Photoshop layered files and even Flash animations).
“It’s amazing to watch Automata automatically build file after file before your eyes at up to and well over 100 times faster than you can do it manually,” said Rick Ralston, president of zumedia software. “Take, for instance, a medium to large business card project. Previously you would build the business card template, get the design approved and then start the long process of manually entering content information and saving and/or printing each person’s card. It will probably take you hours if not days and is highly prone to human error. With Automata you build the template file, get it approved and then go get a cup of coffee while it automatically cranks them all out for you. Quickly, accurately and efficiently.”
The benefits are drastically reduced costs, increased speed, brand consistency, high accuracy rate, no programmer required and the avoidance of brain-glazing repetitive production work. Automata 1.5 frees you to devote yourself to more creative and profitable things.
