Diamondsoft and Artesia Technologies Announce Parnership
|Henry Stewart DAM Symposium, NY — March 25, 2003 — DiamondSoft Inc., the developer of the only true client-server font management system, Font Reserve Server, and Artesia Technologies, the market leader in digital asset management solutions, today announced the integration of Diamondsoft’s exclusive Font Sense technology into the Artesia TEAMS Creative Client. Font Sense enhances the Artesia TEAMS digital asset management solution by identifying and recording critical information about fonts used in digital content, thus preventing workflow interruptions that may occur due to missing fonts or incorrect font usage. The integration between the two products ensures the long-term value of creative assets and streamlines font related creative processes, saving customers time and money.
“Users of digital asset management solutions have been requesting font management functionality for some time,” says Brian Berson, President and Founder of DiamondSoft. “Now, with the TEAMS-Font Reserve Server integration, clients can instantly access critical information about the fonts used in digital media, with or without accessing the file itself, and automatically collect and activate the fonts as necessary. Our mantra is the ?right font in the right place at the right time,’ and this partnership speaks directly to that.”
The integration is poised to generate real business value for Artesia and DiamondSoft customers. When ingesting files, the TEAMS Creative Client can now automatically extract and store the Font Sense identification provided by Font Reserve Server as metadata in TEAMS. This new functionality simplifies the process of reusing creative assets. If a user needs to reprint an asset — perhaps years after its creation — the correct fonts are always available via Font Reserve Server, eliminating wasted time spent searching for the correct font. Additionally, when assets must be sent to a third-party collaborator or partner, fonts can be collected and automatically attached to the content upon export from Artesia’s TEAMS.
“Artesia understands the need to tie font information directly into digital asset management processes. Our customers’ frequently design and repurpose rich media assets, for which access to the correct fonts is crucial. Even subtle font differences can completely disrupt the design process. This is why we’re partnering with DiamondSoft — because they are the industry leader in providing font information and font management solutions.” says Ron Walker, Senior Director of Product Management for Artesia.
