DALIM SOFTWARE Case Study
DIALOGUE Engine brings new life to approvals
A long-standing agency user of DALIM SOFTWARE is building the remote proofing, workflow and approval capabilities of DIALOGUE Engine and ES into its latest generation systems for seamless interfacing with its clients.
‘Born’ out of the 2014 amalgamation of 1980s repro house Colour Systems-cum-1990s media production company FMG and Pod One, a New York-based e-commerce agency, BORN Group is a worldwide digital agency with offices in London, North America and Asia.
BORN uses its own in-house developed flat plan management software, called VIP, to handle client approval of the pages it creates. The VIP system is used with BORN Group’s book and magazine publishing clients which include Harper Collins, Random House, Reader’s Digest, the Telegraph Group, The Big Issue and Crash Test Media, publishers of London Underground free magazines such as The Stylist. It’s also used with the group’s biggest client, Sotheby’s, to produce their catalogues. In total the company has handled five million pages through the VIP system in the last four years.
The group’s existing remote approval solution, which was based around the previous stand-alone version of DIALOGUE, was Java-based. This was leading to support problems with clients in areas such as colour- critical approvals for book publishing clients. “Apple’s support for Java had been decreasing over the previous couple of years,” recalls technical director Bill Tickle, “so we worked with LGS to migrate to DIALOGUE Engine.”…Download the full BORN case study here.
