Smart Mover -
Automate your workflow

In any organization, resources can be saved by automating repetitive tasks. Smart Mover connects to WoodWing Enterprise and Elvis DAM, and offers a graphical user interface for quickly setting up automated and scheduled tasks.

Options available include turning incoming e-mails into editable stories, importing and converting wire text and images, automatically creating issues and purging old files. But publishing content to websites can also be automated, as well as working with RSS feeds, Twitter and more. The possibilities are endless.

Novice or Expert -
Everyone can use it

Smart Mover's interface is designed to be easy and intuitive for the novice user. Each process features a graphical user interface so that you can set scheduling and actions with your mouse.

If you have experience with scripting, Smart Mover offers even greater options for automation. XSL transformations, running command line options, and sending instructions to an InDesign server are just a few of the possibilities that Smart Mover offers.

At your service - On Macintosh, Windows and Linux

Smart Mover has a Manager component and a Services component. The Services component runs silently in the background, performing the tasks you have created. Using the Smart Mover Manager application from your desktop you can configure its operations.

The Smart Mover Services application supports all major modern platforms: Macintosh, Windows, and Linux, giving you the greatest flexibility for deployment. The Manager operates on both Windows and Mac. 

The ultimate Task force

Smart Mover is made up of Tasks that are organized into Processes. With every release these Tasks feature new additions.  

Some examples of what tasks can do:

  • Move, copy, transform (XSL), (un)zip, purge or rename files
  • Embed XMP information, extract metadata
  • Move content in and out of Enterprise, Elvis DAM or ftp folders
  • Publish to Facebook, Twitter, websites
  • and much more...
