If you’re looking for an alternative to Universal Type Server (UTS) font manager from Extensis, you’ve come to the right place. The end of the road for UTS is in plain sight now and customers worldwide are looking for good alternatives to the old font server.

Extensis stopped adding features to UTS two years ago and redirected its resources into developing its Connect Fonts service, which unfortunately falls far short of UTS functionality.

Connect Fonts: Not Ready for Prime Time

Extensis is now encouraging UTS customers to move to Connect Fonts, their fledgling, cloud-only, font sharing service. And they are making with a lot of promises about adding enterprise features in the future. But don’t be fooled into thinking that Connect Fonts is ready for the font management requirements of enterprise audiences anytime soon, or perhaps ever.

FontAgent: Used by Industry Leaders Worldwide

So how about some good news? FontAgent Server from Insider Software is an enterprise-class font manager used by TV networks, media giants, ad agencies, corporate marketers, printers, prepress houses, manufacturers, universities and design schools worldwide. It was around before UTS and it’ll be here long after UTS is gone.
