The modern media production and collaboration platform.
The universal software solution can complete a multitude of tasks related to document creation and modification, coordination and proofreading as well as data management for all types of media and articles. publiXone serves various applications from the areas of asset, brand and product management, web-to-print, shop and translations.
All processes are displayed transparently and networked by the system, simplifying them considerably. Faster processes, high transparency and a drastic reduction of communication are the result, as is savings on software purchases as well as maintenance expenses on the part of the user. publiXone works on established network technologies and industry standards, client- and browser-based as well as an app for mobile users.
Desktop, Web & Mobile
Different applications require different tools. It is comprehensive and efficient for administrators and power users, easy to use for normal users and handy and mobile for travellers. publiXone® offers something for everyone.
The publiXone client is your central work tool and is also used for management, administration and configuration of the system. The interface has been intentionally designed as an application in order to provide administrators and power users in particular with the most efficient tool possible.
The application runs on PC and Mac and it is updated automatically as needed. Installation is not necessary, simply load and start.
The standard situation: A file must be checked, commented on, edited and then forwarded. Whether you’re a product manager, proofreader or translator, with publiXone Desktop, you’ll get exactly the right tool for the job. Your local applications will be transparently integrated in the process, as will our innovative on- and offline editors for Adobe InDesign files, for example. For PC and Mac, no installation necessary.
The browser-based interface should not be missed; it presents an intuitive windowing technology. The design can be adjusted in “shape and colour” and follows the motto: As much as necessary, as little as possible. Depending on the permissions, the user will have extensive features available for organising and retrieving data, for document editing based on our editing technologies and for workflow coordination. Or simply for project monitoring.
Are you often on the go and not at your workplace? Do you only have a smartphone or a tablet to hand? Then publiXone Mobile is ready for you. As an app or touch-optimised website, publiXone Mobile serves information and control functions in particular. You can see projects and light boxes as well as the latest news. Files can be viewed in detail and projects can be delegated.
The shop module supplements publiXone with its own interfaces set up in the respective corporate design. These adhere to the well-established functions in the user guidance and should be familiar to almost every user. You can place an order using a shopping cart with just a few clicks. If necessary, extensive campaign assistants can help you to order a variety of different documents in one go.
Files – your digital values
publiXone manages all types of data and ensures that they are accessible and that they can be found and used from any location. Detailed previews and effective indexing are helpful in this process. In addition, files can be versioned or annotated, automatically converted or controlled using variants. Files in publiXone are in good hands.
Reliable and efficient production
Your projects are organised in a hierarchical structure and you always have the current status in view thanks to the various analysis options. The clearly defined on- and off-line editing options are based on established publishing technologies and allow for the efficient integration of users, even if they are not in the profession. Sophisticated tools ensure that all work done on the web or desktop falls exclusively within the framework of the given corporate design guidelines.
Success through teamwork
In a workflow, you get to determine exactly who needs to do what when, and to whom tasks can be delegated. You are free to model the individual work steps and sequences as you like. Configure individual users and groupings, or let the system perform automatic steps like creating prepress files or distributing them. Notices, memos and reminders ensure that nothing falls behind schedule. publiXone keeps an eye on it for you.
Effective creation and editing of documents
Adobe InDesign for creative layout requirements, CHILI Publisher for innovative online editing, or PAGEFLEX for high-performance applications with a high degree of automation. publiXone leaves the choice to you.
Adobe InDesign has been the de facto standard in desktop publishing for years. We have developed innovative online and offline editor technologies that enable you to process InDesign templates with a high level of process reliability and compliant with your corporate design. These technologies use the Adobe InDesign Server and guarantee that your InDesign files are processed smoothly without formatting issues. Unambiguous rules define the editing options, so layout specialists and non-typographers can also make their changes directly in the document.
Our Pageflex product is the world’s only patented document technology, originally designed, developed and optimised for web-based applications. In contrast to traditional DTP applications, Pageflex is able to store complex corporate design rules directly in the layout. In addition to the high-performance servers, Pageflex has been delivering the innovative EDIT online editing technology since 2002. This enables you to work in the document directly by means of a web browser or rich client.
CHILI Publisher is a web-based document editor that we have integrated perfectly into the publiXone platform. The solution includes a variety of powerful features and provides extensive features that until now have been reserved for dedicated publishing applications. In addition to WYSIWYG editing, 3D objects can be imported and the projected templates can be displayed on the screen.
The independent jury of renowned experts awards the Initiative Mittelstand IT Innovation Prize to publiXone®.
Konzept-iX received the coveted and unique award for the innovative and platform-independent integration and control of Adobe InDesign servers.
Modularised for your needs
Different modules provide a configuration that is tailored to your needs. Modules such as hierarchical user administration, comprehensive asset management and innovative workflow management and modelling are already included in the standard package. Additional modules are also ready for use:
Innovative integration of local applications
Any local desktop application such as Adobe InDesign, Photoshop or Office can be integrated transparently into the production processes. Records of the activities allow for a meaningful log of the file’s life cycle. In addition, you can position files using drag-and-drop and use light-boxes to create virtual collections. In addition to the indexing for projects, calendars make a clear presentation of your projects and workflows possible.
publiXone makes the processes transparent and records all document changes so that individual editing steps can be tracked at any time. Any version can be compared with another by means of a visual and textual display. In combination with Adobe InDesign, versioning is also done within the document at the frame level. A mouse click activates the desired version.
publiXone offers various methods for annotating and approving documents to optimise the proofreading process. Annotations can be stored and communicated directly “in” various document types. The module works independent of format and can be dynamically configured in workflow management. Sophisticated reporting saves and displays all comments and desired corrections.
Managing language versions and variants
The module provides active support in the creation of translations or in the generation of multiple document variants. Using a master project, the system can inherit layout changes in the variants at any time, or to communicate subsequent content changes to the editor of the variant. A graphical representation provides information about the respective status of the individual variant projects. The module works together with the publiXone Version module.
Simple archiving and retrieval
The need for archiving arises with an increasing volume of data. Completed projects or those that are no longer current can be hidden and then shown again when needed. In other words, data from archived projects can be viewed at any time. Projects can be retrieved with a single mouse click.
Very few steps to the final order
An intuitive thematic catalogue organises templates or products and allows you to easily navigate to and select them. This catalogue can be modified directly and then saved in the shopping cart. You go straight to the order via the pricing. The shop module contains its own interfaces, which you can adapt to whatever corporate design you wish.
Individual yet standard
Your wishes can be fulfilled. A comprehensive interface package allows for data exchange and individual features based on the standard software. A large number of extension and plug-in interfaces as well as different APIs (programming interfaces) are available for this purpose. publiXone is especially cooperative.
