Typefi Systems Inc. has announced version 2.7 of its product, the Typefi Publishing System. The latest version comes in two flavors: Typefi Print for centralized document creation and branding, and Typefi Publish for workgroup collaboration around long document and book production. The Typefi scriptless composition engine automates the publishing of a wide array of document types without the need for expensive template coding or manual page layout. Typefi Print allows companies to automate the creation of brand and regulatory compliant documents, and allows any employee to create personalized materials on-demand. The Typefi Publishing System automates all page layout and application of fonts, colors, inline images, illustrations, and other richly formatted elements including sidebars and floating elements. With Typefi Print, any user can leverage existing design assets to create professional marketing and product launch materials directly from their desktop. Typefi Publish automates the creation and production of complex documents and books. Revision cycles are reduced with a web-based interface that allows authors, designers and editors to collaborate on projects. All content and design elements are stored in an XML-based repository that allows for easy republishing and repurposing of content. Typefi Publish allows for roundtrip editing between source documents, XML content and finished InDesign templates to ensure complete revision control. http://www.typefi.com
