Quark (http://www.quark.com) announced today that Quark Publishing System can be integrated with Microsoft SharePoint 2010 to offer the 100 million SharePoint users worldwide a single, affordable system for workflow, collaboration, and dynamic publishing that spans across all departments.

By uniting SharePoint and Quark Publishing System, knowledge workers and creative departments can collaborate within one system to create, edit, revise, and publish brand-compliant, cross-media marketing communications. This enables organizations across industries to boost the return on their SharePoint investment by reducing the cost of publishing marketing material while reaching target audiences more frequently with accurate and timely information, according to PG Bartlett, senior vice president of Product Management at Quark.

Through the integration of Quark Publishing System — the engine that enables dynamic, collaborative publishing — with SharePoint – Microsoft’s enterprise-class system for coordinating, communicating, and sharing information across an organization — users can reduce publishing costs, increase accuracy and timeliness, eliminate redundancy, and publish across print, web, and digital media seamlessly, he adds. This integration builds on Quark’s existing integration between Microsoft Word and QuarkXPress, which allows Word users to contribute and control content in QuarkXPress layouts.
