>> In-Tools is the developer of AutoFlow Pro, an InDesign plug-in that lets you fully control the layout of both text and images, using both master frames and non-master frames, with minimal user intervention. (And it's a great solution for easy alternate layouts for DPS.) Company founder Harbs is also the “Guru” of PrintUI.com, which provides a number of custom InDesign Server-based solutions.
>> Recosoft makes PDF2ID (converts PDFs to editable InDesign files), ID2Office (converts InDesign files to editable Word or Powerpoint files) and PDF2ID Enterprise, which batch converts PDFs to InDesign and/or to the IDML format; just the ticket for automating workflows. Check them out! --
