Now customers can streamline publishing workflows, easily find DAM files
SAN FRANCISCO, California -- AUGUST 23, 2012 -- Canto and partner Idéa7 today announced CHILI2Cumulus, a web2print solution based on Cumulus and CHILI Publisher. The integration allows customers to streamline publishing workflows and benefit from easy access to their digital asset management files without having to switch between the two applications.
CHILI Publisher can be accessed through a web browser and lets you create and edit documents based on Chili Templates, leveraging InDesign functionality via an intuitive WYSIWYG interface. Cumulus files can be dragged and dropped into CHILI Publisher to create layouts and the associated metadata are automatically copied into the new document.
With CHILI2Cumulus, graphic designers and end users can quickly access Cumulus digital assets, collaborate on mock-ups and create output files for pre-press or interactive media.
CHILI2Cumulus is based on Canto Integration Platform, a framework that provides a quick and easy way to integrate Cumulus into any other system, software application, mobile device or website, so users can power through their work day with one streamlined solution.
"We are excited that Idéa7 has leveraged Canto Integration Platform to make it less time consuming for customers to access their digital assets from CHILI Publisher. This is part of a trend we are seeing to centralize rich media access and management, store and reuse digital media across legacy systems, slash time spent searching for stored documents and images and create efficiencies in workflow management," commented Ulrich Knocke, ceo of Canto.
CHILI2Cumulus is the latest integration based on the Canto Integration Platform. Others include WordPress, SharePoint and WoodWing. Read more about Canto Integration Platform at http://www.canto.com/cip
