Hamburg, Germany-based SoftCare GmbH has announced the release of
K4 Publishing System 4.0 for Mac OS X. The software is billed as “a collaborative publishing system” for magazine publishers that works with Adobe InDesign 2.0, InCopy 2.0, and an SQL database.
The software helps to streamline editorial workflow, according to SoftCare managing director Andreas Schrader. The SQL database itself works on Mac OS X Server and other platforms too.
The K4 Publishing System supports text-drive and layout-drive workflows, and enables users to choose a combination between the two as well. An Admin tool offers administrators control of user privileges and other customizing features. SoftCare said that the solution has been deployed at magazine publishing companies ranging from 15 to 300 users.
K4 is distributed in the Americas by
Managing Editor, Inc. For more details, visit the Web site at the link above.
