Combine the benefits of DALIM and censhare
November 16, 2021
DALIM is one of the leading providers of publishing solutions with products in the field of workflow management and softproofing. w&co has been one of the largest users in Europe for over 30 years and not only uses the solutions for its customers, but also develops interfaces to other products to create efficient production processes.
DALIM is used for colour-accurate verification of print or media data. Briefings are compared with the subsequent implementation of the service provider via system-supported processes. This provides a fast and efficient way of releasing data or can be used for feedback regarding necessary correction loops.
DALIM's softproof solution provides digital asset and production tracking
It features project management tools, page and sheet planning, colour management
TWIST for workflow control/automation
DIALOGUE for release/communication processes and tools for correction details
The generic and fully configurable DALIM Connector is an in-house development by w&co and connects DALIM's software solution with censhare's ECMS and ensures complete integration of both systems. Via the REST interface, images and pages are exchanged between the two systems, the production and release status is synchronised, and event-based automatisms in further processing are triggered and controlled.
Scope of functions:
Creation of hierarchical categories in DALIM based on meta data information from censhare (e.g. customer, project, publication, page)
Exchange of media data between censhare and DALIM such as images and pages (e.g. JPEG, TIFF, PDF, Indesign)
Synchronisation of status information between DALIM and censhare in real time
Direct URL call of the assets in DALIM from censhare
Freely configurable API calls via the censhare admin client
Event-based workflows for controlling and automating processes in censhare and DALIM
censhare can be integrated into workflows of the DALIM softproof solution as the only production data source or as one of several.
The possible use cases are manifold:
Content testing of different production statuses
Colour-checking of data ready for publication
Modelling of simple and complex release processes
Integration of censhare as a data source in DALIM
Control of censhare workflows from DALIM or DALIM workflows from censhare
Content and technical verification of data online
Direct release processes in censhare or in DALIM
Media production completely possible in censhare
Data can flow together from different sources in DALIM
