Intelligent efficiency | axaio software products optimize and standardize output workflow processes in environments using Adobe InDesign/InDesign Server, Illustrator and InCopy.


axaio MadeToPrint vastly enhances the reliability of PDF creation and export through standardization and automation of output processes. Editorial systems like vjoon K4, WoodWing Enterprise, Quark Publishing Platform or Van Gennep PlanSystem4 can be integrated seamlessly. Another topic axaio is focusing on is the generation of tagged, accessible PDF documents from within Adobe InDesign. With its tool MadeToTag, InDesign files are prepared fast and properly as tagged documents and are exported as an tagged, accessible PDF, which is legally compliant (PDF/UA standard). axaio solutions are in use by publishing houses, printers, advertisement agencies, prepress service providers, public institutions, insurance and packaging companies all over the world.


MadeToPrint Server



MadeToPrint Server is an Adobe InDesign Server plug-in, which monitors hot folders for incoming InDesign documents or XML job tickets. These are then opened and processed automatically based on prior defined output set ups. With the appurtenant MadeToPrint Server UI, developed as a separate application, you can easily manage the workflow remotely within the internal network through a panel – no need for elaborate terminal handling.

MadeToTag is an Adobe InDesign plug-in to prepare and export InDesign documents as tagged, accessible PDF files. For all those who have to create accessible PDFs on a regular base, will get an easy-to-use tool that considerably simplifies and speeds up preparation and creation steps. In addition, MadeToTag meets the requirements of the PDF/UA standard (universal accessibility) to comply with legal regulations.


MadeToPrint Server combines the characteristics of the Adobe InDesign Server (stability, high-performance, time saving & scalability through multi instancing) with the efficient and clever functions of the MadeToPrint plug-in, e.g. running various output jobs in parallel, dynamic, rule-based generation of file names and target directories, checking for missing links and fonts, post preflight on the generated PDFs etc. Since MadeToPrint is also available as an InDesign desktop version, you create the output settings in that UI instead of using more complex scripting. All MadeToPrint jobs are processed fully-automated without manual control. Additionally MadeToPrint Server offers an XML interface to seamlessly integrate with other solutions (e.g. Woodwing Enterprise or vjoon K4) as well as an option to connect customer scripts for a tailor-made workflow. The effort to set up a workflow with MadeToPrint Server is relatively small compared to the efficiencies which it achieves.


MadeToTag makes life easier for people who need to generate tagged, accessible PDFs regularly from within Adobe InDesign. MadeToTags intuitive UI guides you through 7 steps, which are necessary until the document can be exported as an accessible and legally compliant PDF/UA. Various checks ups and problem locators/correctors give you the safety that all parts were processed properly and nothing was forgotten. MadeToTag even tags very complex tables structures by rows and columns, so that the relations between the cells are correct. Everything from within InDesign – no more rework in Acrobat.
