Avosoft Releases Avopress Brand Server 2.0 Beta

Major version update adds powerful Configuration Management features

NEW YORK, NY – NOVEMBER 22, 2011 – Avosoft Corporation, makers of the Avopress line of document creation tools, has released Avopress Brand Server 2.0 for beta testing. The newest version of its document creation and branding software introduces several major new features, including automated deployment of VSTO add-ins and content upload from Office applications.

The major version update touts the addition of VSTO (Visual Studio Tools for Office) add-ins to the centralized deployment feature set.  Like the VBA add-in deployment feature in existing versions of Brand Server, VSTO add-ins are installed, uninstalled and updated silently and automatically with no user interaction or application restart required.

Another major new feature in Brand Server 2.0 is the ability to deploy custom Office Fluent UI (Office Ribbon) configuration to users and groups. Corporate standard or department specific ribbon configurations can be created on one Office machine and then seamlessly deployed across the organization to users and groups.

The latest release also introduces several other Office configuration settings and presets to the platform. Key user settings such as custom spell check dictionaries and Building Blocks and Document Styles for Microsoft Word further enhance the document consistency and brand compliance features that have made Avopress Brand Server a hit with document production teams and corporate communications directors.

Together, the new deployment features in Avopress Brand Server complete the evolution of the product from a centrally managed solution for Rapid Document Creation to a full-fledged configuration management solution for Microsoft Office in the desktop environment.

Avopress customers have been notified of the beta release and invited to test the new features in a sandbox environment or by downloading and installing it on a test server. Participants in the Avopress Beta Program will find the new release available for download on their customer account page.
