Transforms and Optimises Content for Digital Media

FreeFlow® Digital Publisher takes almost any job you traditionally print today, and automatically transforms and optimises the content for delivery via today’s digital media. As a result, your customers can reach a broader audience through Web browsers; mobile apps that can be downloaded from the Apple® iTunes® Store, Google Play®, or the Amazon® App Store; and links to content sent via social media.

FreeFlow® Digital Publisher is a digital publishing software solution that allows you to provide both print and mobile/online communications simultaneously using a single unified workflow. With two new Cloud configurations to choose from, you can now lower your start-up costs, speed up deployment and quickly begin generating new revenue from multi-channel services.

Only a small number of content owners can deliver digital communications that are optimised for the many forms of mobile consumption. This translates to missed opportunities for many to reach their customers through these popular channels. To publish to these channels, content needs to be adjusted and optimised for a multitude of formats and sizes. That takes technical expertise and diverse work processes, and that’s why you need FreeFlow Digital Publisher.
