Automate your Workflow

XML is rapidly gaining acceptance as a way of transferring information between programs, so it was a natural choice for us in describing imposition tasks. So we will encourage OEMs, integrators and workflow vendors to create customized workflows using its Hot folder or Command-Line (XML) tools.

If you are using Quite Imposing Plus, it makes an XML for every imposition you create, so you already have XML available for Quite Hot Imposing.

Our customers have used the Quite Hot Imposing command line to integrate with industry standard workflow products including

  • Enfocus Switch
  • Solimar
  • Xerox FreeFlow
There is direct support for integrating Quite Hot Imposing with the Switch range of workflow automation products from Enfocus as per the example below.

Switch Workflow

The XML metadata is used to determine how a file should be imposed. You create the imposition layout, then export the settings for use with the Quite Hot Imposing configurator in Switch. For more details on how to integrate the products seamlessly see this page.
