Connecting Distributed Locations
With vjoon K4 you are able to integrate local newsrooms, printing services, freelancers and subsidiaries via VPN (Virtual Private Network) or application delivery solutions (e.g. Citrix). In Addition to that browser-based clients enable your team to collaborate via Web – K4 Web Portal™ lets you edit texts copyfit or as HTML, gather images, videos, URLs (via K4 Collections™) or upload files to the System.
K4 Distributed Enterprise System™
Long distances - local access speed
Companies that operate remote production sites achieve tremendous time savings when they use the K4 Distributed Enterprise System (K4 DES™).
If a user at a location far from headquarters wants to work on a layout for example, the file is provided by the on-site K4 Local Data Storage™ (K4 LDS™) rather than the remote K4 Server at the company‘s headquarter. Layout files including all placed objects (for example pictures, videos, etc.) or any other file (e.g. Photoshop, Word or videos) open as quickly as the local network can deliver them, which is far faster than retrieving a file from the remote central server. This benefit works both ways: The edited file is first saved to the K4 LDS on site and then forwarded automatically to the central K4 Server without consuming the local workplace computer's resources. The central K4 Server automatically updates and synchronizes all associated files so that users at distributed locations everywhere always access the same data.
Allocate. Synchronize. Produce even faster.
This is another example of the Unified Publishing Process at work: Much like a supply chain management system that coordinates and synchronizes logistics, K4 DES delivers the right file to the right destination far faster. These advantages are beneficial not just for big media companies with distributed locations, but also for corporate publishers and smaller publishing houses.
