FontFlex Object-Based Font Management

FontAgent Server’s unique, object-based FontFlex technology brings unrivaled power, flexibility and simplicity to your organization’s everyday creative and business workflows.

FontAgent® Server 7 uses Insider’s uniquely powerful, object-based FontFlex™ technology to combine power, performance and flexibility into a simple solution that addresses the needs for the smallest workgroups and largest enterprises.

FontFlex technology enables object-based interactions
between the building blocks of font management

Object-Based Power and Simplicity

FontAgent Server is built around the six basic elements of font management—fonts, sets, users, groups, font licenses and enterprise directories. Those objects automatically interact with each other as you import fonts, add users and assign fonts to them. FontAgent Server’s new object-based architecture then automatically:

  • Manages user and group properties
  • Manages font metadata and set definitions
  • Distributes fonts to users as admins assign them
  • Takes back fonts whose assignments have expired or have been revoked
  • Tracks which users have downloaded and activated which fonts

The power of object-based FontFlex technology makes managing your fonts easier than ever.

Simple Setup: All Fonts to All Users

The simplest font-server configuration for small teams is to distribute all fonts to all users. To make it happen, upload fonts to FontAgent Server, and then use the browser-based Server Manager to invite users. Then assign the fonts to the users, and the server does the rest. Later, as you add fonts to the server it automatically distributes the fonts to your users.

Add Sets to Organize Your Fonts

Use sets to organize your font collection by type, style, classification, project, team, foundry—whatever you need. Upload sets to the server or create them manually using the Server Manager, and then share the sets with users. As you add and delete fonts in a set, FontAgent Server automatically propagates the changes to user systems.

Use sets to organize your fonts by type, project, classification, foundry—however you want

Use groups to organize your users and simplify font distribution and reporting

Centralized, Top-Down Font Control

As organizations’ font collections and user communities grow, they centralize control to specify which users have access to which fonts. Admins simply assign fonts and sets to users and FontAgent Server distributes them. Admins can also expire or de-authorize fonts and the server takes them back from users automatically.

Add Groups to Organize Your Users

As your community grows, use groups to organize your users by role, project team, department, cost center, location, etc. Then assign fonts and sets to the groups to distribute fonts to multiple users in one easy step.

Monitor License Compliance

To monitor font-license compliance and manage legal risk, define font licenses and assign them to fonts and sets. FontAgent Server automatically tracks font usage and alerts you when your team’s usage exceeds legal license limits.

Authentication and Directory Integration

Already use enterprise directory services? Integrate with Active, Open and LDAP directories in minutes. Authenticate with 128-bit encryption and Kerberos single-sign-on. With FontAgent Server, setting it all up has never been easier.

Add license management and directory services integration
to meet the font-service requirements of any size user community.

Simple, Straightforward Setup

To get started with FontAgent Server 7, follow these simple steps:

  • Upload fonts or sets to the server
  • Invite users to your server community
  • Share sets with users and groups
  • Create groups of users—by department, team, location, role or projectoptional
  • Define font licenses and termsoptional

That’s all there is to it. Later, just modify fonts, sets, users and groups as you wish. FontAgent Server does the rest, keeping all your users in sync with your server fonts.

Fast, Easy and Reliable Font Services

The best part of FontAgent Server’s unique, object-based approach to font management is that you don’t need to understand it to take advantage of its benefits:

  • Unrivaled scalability, performance and reliability
  • Simple browser-based server administration
  • High-speed client synchronization
  • License compliance monitoring and alerts
  • Real-time font usage and activation reports

Too much information? Just remember that FontAgent Server is fast, flexible, foolproof and simple. And it’s available in cloud-based and on-premise configurations that have the configurable power needed to meet your specific requirements.
