Alpharetta, Georgia-based Apago Inc. has announced an agreement with Prinux to take over the development and marketing of the company’s AcrosuitePRO software product.
AcrosuitePRO is a set of device-independent Adobe Acrobat plug-ins that help maximize the productivity of on-demand digital printers. Apago will integrate its toolbox of PDF technologies into AcrosuitePRO, and plans to convert the plug-in into a stand-alone product in 2008. As part of the agreement, Eric Roundtree, founder of Prinux, has joined Apago’s software development team.
The software allows printers to create a single ‘virtual job-ticket’ that describes how a document should be printed, including information about imposition, page size and the like. This job-ticket is not specific to a single model of digital printer, as is the case when using vendor-supplied print driver software. Apago is shipping the latest version of AcrosuitePRO v.2.6.2 and is providing technical support to current and existing customers.
