Press release from the issuing company

September 5, 2007 - Printable Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of Integrated Marketing, Web to Print, and Personalized Direct Marketing Solutions, today announced the availability of FusionPro Live, a responsive and light-weight browser-based solution for online VDP template editing. Currently available as a freestanding application, FusionPro Live will soon be integrated into FusionPro Web.
FusionPro Live is a web-based solution that brings FusionPro Desktop variable document template design to the web browser and delivers enhanced creative control to corporate marketing departments, consumers, sales agents, or designers in a distributed design environment. With the ability to lock select elements for brand preservation or to allow full template modification, FusionPro Live features a sophisticated drag-drop interface to move, resize, or otherwise alter variable frames with fast browser-based previewing of changes.

"We worked closely with our users to understand their needs for an online VDP template design solution. It became clear that no single solution was meeting their key needs," said Mark Hilger, Product Manager, Printable Technologies. "We have designed a solution that is both responsive and flexible. FusionPro Live provides the ability to hide or expose advanced VDP template design capabilities to end users; performs in a distributed VDP design environment where design teams are not co-located; and offers a multi-tiered design workflow where the service provider, corporate marketing department, and end user all need varying levels of design freedom based on their role in the overall workflow."
