Benefits Of A Universal Type Server Subscription

UTS is a robust, enterprise-level, font server, and font manager. Your annual subscription ensures you always have access to the latest versions for optimal compatibility and the latest features — and with a lower barrier to entry, organizations of all shapes and sizes can reap the benefits of enterprise font management.

Flexible Font Management For Large Teams

UTS is a server-based solution with flexible controls for font distribution and dynamic features to fit your organization’s font management needs.

Centralized Font Distribution

Take the manual burden off IT administrators in font distribution. Centralized font management with UTS enables automatic identification of font duplicates — making it easy to manage, store, and deliver the correct fonts. Font distribution has never been more efficient.

Online Admin

Control font distribution and user access through a convenient interface. Easily manage who can add, remove, export, and collect fonts for output.

User Client Options

The Universal Type Client and Universal Core Client let you provide the right tools for the different types of font users in your organization (regardless of whether they’re running on MAC or Windows OS) while helping you ensure font usage compliance and brand consistency.

Font License Tracking

Assign font access to workgroups based on license and usage counts available in UTS to prevent illegal overuse. The UTS tracking tool helps you keep unlicensed fonts out of your workflow.

Robust Font Usage Reporting

Get the data you need to understand and track your team’s font use through handy graphical reports. Easily export data for top-level auditing needs.

Solutions For Specific Workflows
Universal Type Server ensures fonts are accessible for automated publishing workflows that use Adobe InDesign Server with FontLink, and for PDF prepress and printing workflows that use Font Connector for Esko ArtPro+.
Flexible Deployment

Universal Type Server can support physical or virtual file server instances. It can be installed on or off premises and deployed on AWS, Rackspace, Azure, and other cloud servers. There are options for on-premise, cloud-based, and private cloud font distribution.

Reliable Updates

Prompt updates ensure compatibility with Adobe, Sketch, QuarkXPress, Apple, and Microsoft — preventing costly downtime.

Directory Services

Manage users through LDAP integration using Active Directory.

Font Auto-Activation

Simply open a file and the exact versions of the fonts used in it will turn on. Our plugins help you save time with automatic font activation in Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, After Effects and InCopy — as well as Sketch and QuarkXPress.

Exact Font Matching

Minimize inconsistencies and font errors with Extensis’ proprietary Font Sense technology, which assigns unique identifiers to every font in your collection and guarantees correct usage across your projects.

Font Panels

With the Extensis font panel, you can access your entire font collection without leaving your preferred design application.

How This Font Management Server Solves Workflow Problems

Design, print, and publishing environments face many unique challenges with managing fonts in their workgroups. These challenges can be difficult to manage at the user level but are more readily solved by a server-based font management solution.

M&C Saatchi, a global advertising agency with offices in 18 countries, needed to improve ways for collecting groups of fonts for output. La Razón, a leading print and digital media publisher in Bolivia, began to see font errors enter their design workflow and stall their production. The Chronicle of High Education, the go-to source of news, information, and jobs for the education and philanthropic sectors, wanted to improve font access for users and reduce the burden on their IT. The Onion needed to accelerate production workflows and establish a system for tracking font purchases and licenses.

The answer to these organizations’ challenges is Universal Type Server, the industry-standard in server-based font management. UTS provides administrators with the control they need to truly manage their fonts for consistency, security, and compliance across their entire corporate environment.
