New Dalim ES6

Software Solutions

Dalim Software has announced the official release of Dalim ES6.

Dalim ES6, an advanced project planning, production workflow, and asset management system is used by brands, publishers, printers, and agencies to oversee all facets of print and online production projects. This ranges from project planning to reduce time to market, to helping with design and production of content.

It can be hosted on-premises or in the cloud, with all required security.

Version ES6 provides the opportunity to build friendlier user interfaces and new, practical tasks to produce content.

Key performance indicators (KPI): With improvements to the KPI system, users can now access a wide range of data and reports to get a complete overview of their production performance. Reports on job, department, and organisational efficiencies will allow users to measure the productivity of their business, and make improvements where required. With an interactive report builder and simple layout editor to embed them into a dashboard, users can spend less time building these reports.

Project mapping and planning: Users can join stakeholders, map tasks, and monitor progress as they complete their assignments. Along with KPIs, users can build dashboards, where all reports – project planning and KPIs in the form of calendars, tasks, Gantt, resources, workflows, or Kanban – can be combined and displayed inside a single interface. It offers customised real time transparency of all processes, all within one interface.

Custom desktop user interface: The new Dalim ES6 React interface delivers a novel intuitive experience that streamlines the user experience to get work done even quicker. With a wide range of new components, users can build even more interactive desktops; helping them design their own efficiencies into the interface.

Online proofing: With much more remote work, companies are relying upon robust online collaboration systems. Workflows and communications surrounding Dalim ES are faster, with personalised shortcuts and annotations. With high resolution multiple page viewing, users can perform side by side comparisons of content. Just as important, the proofing system is capable not only for print, but for rich media like websites as well as video, banners and quick 3D rendering – all in one place.

The production DAM solution. Automatically integrate, transform, collaborate: Unlike other systems, ES is not merely a digital asset management system nor just a production workflow system. It combines a digital asset management system with a powerful, automated workflow to transform content efficiently. Users work on content more easily than ever in a web browser, share documents, or create contact sheets. The interface automatically manages revisions and produces assets during check-ins and checkouts.

API driven job ticketing makes it easier to access metadata: A job ticket must be simple to use and understand. With D ES6, everyone can customise job tickets with a simple WYSIWYG editor while making it seamless to access content metadata. By connecting to an ERP, online project monitoring becomes a corporate wide resource.

A smarter system: Dalim ES6 has enriched intelligence. For example, by adding a thesaurus, administrators can improve searches, asking the system to use artificial intelligence to find similar assets. Along with metadata tagging, searches will locate synonym words. It can also be integrated with third party automated keyword searching systems.

Plug into Adobe CC: ES6 incorporates a new Adobe CC plugin for seamless, remote integration between the Dalim ES6 DAM and the Adobe Creative Suite. This provides the perfect opportunity for Adobe CC users to work from anywhere via the ES DAM, even without direct access to production volumes.

There has been an explosion of brand content to produce and manage. Marketers need to react to trends to change content quickly – of all types – to keep their customers.

Brands also need to communicate via many media channels, including online, packaging, collateral, video, web, and 3D images. Dalim ES6 lets brands manage all kinds of material encompassing all media, assuring a consistent message and experience for the consumer. The same system can be used for different workflows; for example, automated catalogue or packaging production. Brand owners can scale production efficiently with one secure production automation system to serve every project and all versions – brand extensions, geography, and languages.

For example, labels with different flavours, sizes, and languages can all be created automatically. Information flows from the product lifecycle management (PLM) system to the packaging graphics files and is filled automatically. Even required reviews are automatically sent to supply chain partners. This provides more time for people to work on value added projects and tasks while reducing typing errors.

Retailers use Dalim ES6 for international packaging – particularly helpful for project collaboration. They also can produce hundreds of videos and handle the explosion of images requiring centralized storage. Others have product teams that share content including print, video, online, point of sale, or e-mail using Dalim ES6 to unify all content in one place.

Printers need to serve brands by reducing time to market with quality work. ES6 offers a wide range of tools for the printer, including project management, a world class production workflow, online proofing, and DAM. This ranges from project planning to tasks to help design and produce print materials. Dalim ES6 workflows automate repetitive steps to reduce costs, ensuring no steps are missed. It can be scaled to handle any number of traditional and digital presses.

‘For nearly 30 years, Dalim Software has had a legacy of producing reliable, state of the art and future proof automated systems for content production. With Dalim ES6 we, and more importantly, our users, think we have outdone ourselves,’ said Carol Werlé, CEO. ‘During uncertain times, Dalim ES has become a strategic asset for many companies where marketing and communications deserve a reliable and resilient collaborative production system that can easily be managed remotely.’
