Duet is a powerful, economical digital-to-print edition workflow solution linking CMS platforms with Adobe InDesign. It’s a modern tool for a digital-first strategy that:
Editors and print page designers can work from the Web CMS instead of two separate systems, making this tool more efficient and saving publishers money.
Duet connects CMS platforms with InDesign, establishing the publication, issue and page structure in your CMS platform. Then, your teams can create content in the Web CMS, assigning it to a page. It’s the ultimate in flexible workflows. Reporters, photographers, editors and designers can work from your CMS where content is assigned to pages. Designers can drag and drop content onto the page. Visual status indicators provide output workflow visibility to production, and ads and folios are automatically placed. Duet provides a one-click output-to-folder structure.
Duet can be loaded onto a designer’s workstation for access to content at their fingertips, and it doesn’t get in the way of layout creativity. Designers will love that it supports merging pages, double truck pages, workflow status of pages, naming conventions and automatic placement for folios and ROP ads, as well as creation of PDFs sent to output folder structures.
Duet saves publishers on the cost of print page production. Plus, Duet provides publishers with choices regarding where pages can be stored, whether on a local server or cloud-based system. And publishers can set their own cost structure for page storage.
Exceptional software, proven processes, deep expertise and untiring customer service make it easy to switch, take control and make more money.
