New! KIM Auto - A true Client-/Server Version now
KIM Auto is available as a true client-/server version, now. Due to this concept several KIM clients can independently create jobs and and than use the KIM auto functionality for processing. This offers a cost-effective workplace extension.
|After a longer evaluation and testing period in cooperation with our KIM users and KIM testers the new version KIM 7.1 could be carried out.
The "collected print form" functionality plays a major role now. The newly designed graphic user interface enriched by the "KIM Product Pool" makes designing a desired individual collected printing form easily practicable. There is furthermore an import of XML files possible and thereby a highly efficient cross-functional cooperation with MIS-Systems possible..
Again we followed consequently the market demands. KIM is and remains a product which is permantly adapted to the fast changing requirements..
As usual there will be a fully functioning 40-days demo version available for test reasons. Do not hesistate and get it under "Downloads".
