Adobe tackles print management with Livecycle

Adobe Systems introduces a product designed to help businesses create a common design environment for document production and distribution.

Adobe Systems has introduced Livecycle Enterprise Suite (ES) software, a product designed to help businesses create a common design environment for document production and distribution.

Enterprise Suite provides two applications. Livecycle Production Print ES addresses high-volume and production output requirements, and Livecycle Output ES is aimed at on-demand or medium-volume applications.

The Livecycle Output ES is designed to help organisations generate, assemble, and deliver personalised documents in print or electronic formats such as contracts, welcome packages, or shipping labels, Adobe said. Document packages can be customised by combining newly generated PDF files with existing files from document repositories. Furthermore, Livecycle Output ES converts PDF to Postscript or image file formats and automatically routes them to support unattended printing or archiving operations.

Livecycle Production Print ES is the result of a collaboration between Adobe and Streamserve, and offers users a way to streamline poroduction of documents such bank statements. Adobe said the product is able to deliver high volumes for both single jobs and complex document packages. It also supports AFP, Postscript, PCL, and PDF formats and adds advanced post-processing capabilities such as document collection, document sorting, and imposition with e-stapling.

Livecycle Production Print ES is due to be generally availabile in the autumnn. Adobe Livecycle Output ES is expected to be available in July 2007.
