Elara Systems provides services in these areas:
We design and build custom software, handling all phases from requirements analysis through user experience design and application coding.
- Mac and Windows software design and development, using platform-native tools such as Objective C, C#.net, and VB.net. Also cross-platform development using Xojo (an under-appreciated environment that creates native platform-specific apps for Windows, Mac, and Linux using a single code base).
- iOS app development (sorry, no Android development yet).
- Publishing automation (ExtendScript for Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop, and AppleScript for QuarkXPress)
Publishing Systems Architecture
From design to print / web, we can help with all aspects of modern publishing workflows.
We’re proficient in Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, SQLite, and (last but not least) FileMaker Pro.
Specialized Systems Integration
Have a weird pressroom gadget or widget, or some obscure software that needs to be hooked up to your existing workflow? We can probably deal with it.
Chuck Weger is a world-class presenter, having chaired and spoken at sessions for nearly every major publishing conference over the past three decades.
Though not our main focus, we have a complete HD Final Cut Pro suite, lighting kits, audio gear, etc. to help clients develop in-house and trade show training materials.
