Extensis Unveils All New Cloud-Based Font Manager for Creative Teams
PORTLAND, Ore. – May 17, 2016 – Extensis® today released an all new cloud-based font management solution – Suitcase TeamSync™ – that extends the power of Suitcase Fusion® to design teams. The new font management solution uses the industry-standard Suitcase Fusion application as the front end, stores fonts securely in a cloud repository, and offers a one-click invitation for others to join a workgroup. With a shared font library, design teams can finally say goodbye to bottlenecks that arise from synchronization issues.
“Teams often run into issues when using different versions of the same font. Text reflows, missing fonts and even missing glyphs can derail a project, creating setbacks designers simply don’t have time for,” said Clint Daeuble, Product Owner of Font Services at Extensis. “To work together as a well-oiled machine, everyone must have access to the same, precise fonts. Suitcase TeamSync resolves these conflicts, allowing teams to save time and focus on what they do best: deliver brilliant design.”
Suitcase TeamSync gives teams the power to browse, compare, and organize their entire font collection using the same familiar Suitcase Fusion tools they’re already familiar with. With no complex server hardware or user management, Suitcase TeamSync is easy to implement without any IT assistance – perfect for small, in-house teams, agencies or for collaborating with freelancers on a project basis. Suitcase TeamSync also uses Amazon cloud technology to ensure designers’ entire collections will always be accessible and safe.
Key features include:
- Cloud synchronization, enabling designers to share their collections with their team in addition to accessing the collection from a second machine.
- Font auto-activation in the most popular design applications, including Adobe® Creative Cloud® 2015 applications – Adobe Photoshop®, Adobe InDesign®, Adobe Illustrator®, Adobe InCopy® – and QuarkXPress®. Suitcase TeamSync also adds Extensis’ new plug-in for Adobe After Effects®
- Extensis’ patented Font Sense™ technology, which accurately identifies and matches the correct font, every tim
- Robust search and preview features make it easy to find fonts, browse for similar fonts and preview text using any selected fonts.
