Creates hot folder scripts
Germany's Helios says it has launched UB+ ScriptAssistant, a utility for Script Server and Tool Server, which in turn back the UB+ versions of EtherShare, PCShare, WebShare, ImageServer, PDF HandShake and PrintPreview. ScriptAssistant allows the creation of hot folder-based automation workflows for image repurposing, PDF preflighting, and printing and proofing. When paired with Tool Server, remote workstation apps can be integrated into processes.
The software is claimed to require no special scripting knowledge, and allow configuration within minutes. Versions are available for Mac and Windows systems, and extra folder scripts can be downloaded at no charge. ScriptAssistant is likewise free; the download site login credentials are tools/tools.
