High-performance variable data printing and data publishing software
AccurioPro VDP is a professional software suite that has been integrated directly with Adobe InDesign to provide sophisticated variable data printing and data publishing features. The software works with existing InDesign documents using a simple, panel-driven user interface that allows variable elements to be defined anywhere on the page. Everything is point-and-click, and there is no programming language to learn!
The mainstay application for AccurioPro VDP is personalized direct mail, such as Postcards, Letters, Promotions, and the like. However, the advanced feature set offered by AccurioPro VDP also provides a great solution for automating VDP production work, such as Bar Coding and Consecutive Numbering. The result? Unique, personalized output that’s easy to execute and fully supported on all Konica Minolta and other digital presses.
AccurioPro VDP can merge variable text, picture, multi-paragraph files, Word documents, MPS Tags, or even full InDesign master page information using data taken from practically any source. For variable graphics, all of the most popular file formats are supported, including JPEG, PNG, PDF, and TIFF just to name a few. The software supports variable element references by filename, or by full path, and includes our unique Global Search Path feature that allows you to store your variable assets separately on any server or accessible storage.
Creating a variable document with AccurioPro VDP is very easy to do because the setup process utilizes a custom floating panel, with all of the main features accessible via the panel fly-out menu. Of course this means that you never need to leave the InDesign application! Just select the objects you wish to make variable, and click a button. There is no programming language to learn, and most importantly your VDP designs are completely unrestricted – every feature supported by Adobe InDesign is also supported by AccurioPro VDP, including type-on-a-curve, runarounds, multi-page composition, drop caps, transparency effects, Pantone® colors, and much more.
AccurioPro also includes a number of built-in features that you would expect to find only in much more expensive packages. These features include an advanced, menu-driven Rules Builder for handling conditional logic, an automatic Copy Fitting feature that will adjust text to fit an area, and Multi-up Imposition features that allow you to step out and preview your layouts without leaving InDesign, including full support for specialty modes such as Cut & Stack, Label Sort, or Duplo cutters.
AccurioPro VDP imports data directly into InDesign layouts and produces unique, personalized output in a variety of file and VDP formats, including PostScript, PDF/VT, VPS, and PPML. The software is supported by all of the major digital press companies, including of course Konica Minolta.
