Wednesday, August 24, 2016

Press release from the issuing company

Company to showcase technical innovations and partnerships that transform the document editing process and enable customer success 

Erembodegem, Belgium – With a focus on developing solutions that keep pace with a changing market, CHILI publish comes to Graph Expo 16 with new, significant technical advances: CHILI publisher 5.0 and the groundbreaking PDF rendering solution CHILI rendro. At Graph Expo, CHILI publish will also share new details on a partnership with Enfocus, and provide real-world stories of how its solutions have enabled customer success in North America. Attendees can experience these developments in the CHILI publish booth, 2266, at Graph Expo, being held September 25 – 28 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.    

Kevin Goeminne, CHILI publish CEO, says, “A great deal of work went into developing our new CHILI rendro and CHILI publisher 5.0 technology. Our leadership, marketing, and technical teams all contributed to creating solutions that would not just service the industry - they could transform it. These efforts were validated at drupa, when partners, analysts, press, and attendees all applauded our developments and the impact they would have on the way documents are created, edited and shared. We are excited to now bring these developments to Graph Expo, and to showing the North American market the impact these solutions can have on the way marketers manage their documents – and their brands.”

Transforming the PDF rendering process

At Graph Expo, CHILI publish is showcasing CHILI rendro, a new solution that fundamentally transforms how PDFs are rendered and dramatically improves the approval process.

The PDF standard format is intended to retain the creator’s accuracy of reproduction and context. But apart from some desktop applications, none of the PDF readers on the market follow that standard completely. This means that PDFs don’t always display the way the creator intended, especially in a mobile world.

CHILI rendro changes this paradigm

As Kevin Goeminne notes, “Any business that relies on PDFs as part of their operation will tell you that having fast, accurate renderings of PDFs is critical to their success. But until now, these businesses have had to rely on PDFs that don’t accurately represent what the creator intended, causing delays, mistakes, and inefficiencies. Our breakthrough solution solves these challenges by offering the most meticulous rendering, streaming and 3D viewing module of PDF onto any platform that supports the HTML5 canvas. When files require urgent approval, collaboration or editing, CHILI rendro ensures there are no barriers to success.” 

CHILI publish and Enfocus 

At Graph Expo, users can also experience the first OEM partnership for CHILI rendro. This partnership brings together CHILI rendro with the PDF quality control and workflow knowledge of Enfocus to create an add-on module for Enfocus Switch called the Switch PDF Review Module. This new module is an HTML5 Browser based PDF approval tool that combines the flexibility of the browser with the powerful “PDF Inspect” features that are part of the Enfocus technology.

Bjorn Willems, Director of Product Management at Enfocus notes, “Thanks to the development work of our partner CHILI publish, we can give our users the quality/performance they want in the PDF review process. We are grateful for the innovation efforts of CHILI publish.”

CHILI publisher 5.0

The CHILI publisher online editor makes digital the publishing processes easier, more efficient and more intuitive. This solution is easy to use, and gives marketers an easy, scalable way to control their documents – and their brand.  

This latest version of the technology builds on that success. Features in CHILI publisher 5.0 include:

An Updated User Experience 

Today, users are routinely working from devices and locations of their choice. To support this trend, CHILI publisher 5.0 incudes a completely new user experience for online editing. This new UX accommodates the wide range of applications in which users choose to edit, on their phones, tablets or computers - any workspace that is retendered on a HTML 5 canvas. 

So whether the user is editing on a small or large screen, using a mouse, touch, or even a combination of these, CHILI publisher dynamically adapts the workspace to give the user the best possible experience.

Growing Opportunities in The Asian Market

Asia continues to be an area of growth and opportunity for CHILI Publish. The company has established an office in the region and now works with a network of resellers and partners. As a result, CHILI publisher 5.0 includes support of Asian languages for direct creation and editing in CHILI publisher. 

In this release, Chinese, Korean, and Indonesian are supported, with more languages to follow. Output of these documents to PDF and InDesign Mark-Up Language (IDML) is also supported.

Customer Success in North America

As the adoption of CHILI publish has grown in North America, so has the success of the customers who use the technology. At Graph Expo, CHILI publish will share be sharing the stories from these “Spicy Stars:”

Transforming Marketing and Print Operations 

Marketing service provider Fineline has used CHILI publisher to support the creation of their marketing portal Finelink 2.0. CHILI publisher was chosen because it meets all their needs: it provides a professional level layout tool for users of all levels, controls the brand and legally required text, supports data-driven document management, and integrates with the company’s other systems, including asset management, project management and CRM.

Fineline owner Richard Miller says, “Many of the companies we are speaking with are serving multiple locations, franchises or departments, and they often are not working from the same marketing or business script across these various entities, which can result in brand dilution or operational inefficiencies. CHILI publisher has helped us to solve that big challenge by bringing business, marketing and print operations together under one customized, easy-to-use platform that benefits the users, the company, and the brand.”  

Revolutionizing the Yearbook Process

Entourage Yearbooks is a leading yearbook publisher in the US. By integrating CHILI publisher, Entourage Yearbooks was able to revolutionize the yearbook production process by giving schools of all sizes an easy way to create their yearbooks online, according to present school branding regulations. 

Today, the company now provides a customized online editing experience for over 3,000 schools across the US and in 18 other countries. 

Elias Jo, President of Entourage Yearbooks, notes, “We aimed at delivering the best yearbook experience within the latest technology, design and printing techniques. When we invested in CHILI publisher, we loved the way it worked as the online editor we needed and how it backed up all templates and documents. Hassle-free customization, just what we needed.”  

Creating Print Ready PDFs

MyCreativeShop is an online resource that specializes in the creation of flyers and brochures. The website has thousands of visitors per day, giving customers from all over the world a platform to create a design that can then be printed anywhere.  

The concept may sound simple, but getting to a print-ready PDF required a lot of manual steps, costing the company time and money. To solve this challenge, they adopted CHILI publisher, which has transformed the process. Customers sign in, use the template tailored to their brand, and get to work. They close off their session with a perfect, print-ready PDF.

Jason Frueh, owner of MyCreativeShop, says “CHILI publish keeps tailoring CHILI publisher to meet the changing needs of their customers. They want to keep the fit perfect, and that’s how they remain an essential contributor to our success. Without CHILI publisher, we would not be the company we are today, to be honest.”
