| 2 December 2019

Konica Minoltahas today unveiled AccurioPro Variable Data, a new professional suite of variable data printing and publishing software tools, in a move designed to rethink creativity and one-to-one marketing with new standards for high-performance desktop applications.

The Konica Minolta Accurio Pro Variable Data is a powerful variable data plugin to Adobe InDesign®software. It enables seamless integration and variable elements to be easily added to any InDesign document to create unique output in a wide variety of file and VDP formats.

Producing fast, personalised output that is fully supported by all Konica Minolta and other digital presses, the software can merge text, pictures, multi-line articles or full-page information using data from most sources.

AccurioPro Variable Data supports many advanced design features, such as type-on-a-curve, runarounds, multi-page composition, drop shadows and transparency effects. The software is completely menu-driven. Unlike other VDP software products, there is no coding language to learn.
