Reduce Design Time By 20%
DeSL has launched the new Adobe Illustrator Integrator "plug in", which is a powerful addition to the
design workspace. The Integrator "plug in" is already in use with a number of design teams and has
been proven to reduce design time by up to 20%.
This new application has been specifically developed to allow creative teams to perform all of their
product management tasks without having to leave Illustrator, whilst also enabling users to request
samples from nominated vendors, in real time, directly from their Adobe Illustrator workspace. The
result of this means companies are able to significantly accelerate time to market as the "plug-in"
enables designers to focus on being creative, removing all manual and non-design related tasks such
as creating JPG's and uploading these to folders and products.
