Quark DPS update enhances productivity
Quark has announced an update to its Quark Dynamic Publishing Solution which delivers a series of improvements and the new Automation Services. The new features are designed to enhance productivity, as well as automate multi-channel publishing and lower publishing costs. The Automatic Services enable users to automate routine manual publishing tasks, and provides integration with the Drupal Web Content Management System to help automate print-to-web publishing.
Other capabilities offer automatic converting of XML formats to other HTML, PDF or XML formats for export or publishing as well as the ability to import content that's been created with the Quark XML Author into QuarkXPress files and the Quark DPS Workflow. The Automation Services also integrates with Altova MapForce, which delivers a series of tools for translating XML into HTLM, XML to print pages, and QuarkXPress print layouts for digital publishing.
The QPS update also provides new capabilities that include reusable article shapes, centralized QuarkXPress libraries, and the ability to work with both QuarkXPress and QuarkCopyDesk, as well as Adobe InDesign and InCopy in one workflow system.
Additionally, Quark has also introduced QPS Portal Services, an Application Program Interface (API) to QPS that allow developers to build web applications that can be used for anything involving creating, reviewing, approving or reporting content.
Quark is displaying the new features at IFRA in booth #A210 from October 12th to 15th.
