Workflows


If a person does not bring added value by performing a task, the task should be done automatically.

XMedia provides two types of workflows: "Asset Workflows" and "XMedia Template Workflows". Asset workflows ensure streamlined and uniform handling of different assets. Such workflows are designed specifically for the individual customer. Asset workflows are typically applied when preparing many images in a similar manner. In such situations, ‘hot folders’ are created ensuring that the assets put into these folders will be processed in the exact same manner. This could be simple processes such as moving or copying the files. It could also involve more complex operations such as image processing, for instance cut outs, retouch, color corrections, or photo manipulation.

Imagine being able to provide your users with the option to upload images, having them processed according to the company's Design Guide while knowing that every asset will undergo quality control to meet the company brand standards, before they are released.

Aside from ensuring that the company's design standards are adhered to when producing graphic material, XMedia templates can also utilize workflows. Some templates are relatively simple while others are more complex. The complex ones can be run through the central marketing department before the finished material is released to the end user. 

XPublish templates provide an easy way to produce ads. When done, it is possible to send the ads direct to the relevant media via XPublish’s built-in Media Module. If the material is going to print, simply attach the Order Module to the template and specify where the printed material is to be produced. The user only needs to specify the desired quantity. 

It goes without saying that workflows are extremely versatile and time-saving. Not only do they ensure a uniform handling of files, but they actually enable users to make even better business arrangements with third-party suppliers, for instance by assuring your print shop that all materials they receive for printing will be of a technically uniform quality, with all information needed, every time.

If you are involved in workflows, for instance as an approver, XMedia’s task lists provides an overview of which tasks are awaiting your action.
