Artesia Integrates Diamonsoft’s Font Sense

DiamondSoft Inc. and Artesia Technologies announced the integration of Diamondsoft’s Font Sense technology into the Artesia TEAMS Creative Client. Font Sense enhances the Artesia TEAMS digital asset management solution by identifying and recording critical information about fonts used in digital content, thus preventing workflow interruptions that may occur due to missing fonts or incorrect font usage. When ingesting files, the TEAMS Creative Client can now automatically extract and store the Font Sense identification provided by Font Reserve Server as metadata in TEAMS. If a user needs to reprint an asset — perhaps years after its creation — the correct fonts are always available via Font Reserve Server, eliminating wasted time spent searching for the correct font. Additionally, when assets must be sent to a third-party collaborator or partner, fonts can be collected and automatically attached to the content upon export from Artesia’s TEAMS.,
