What is CHILI publisher?

CHILI publisher is a breakthrough online document editing solution that makes digital publishing easier, more efficient and intuitive for clients.

It is simple to set up, browser-based and flexible enough to deliver great publishing tools for your business, whatever business you’re in.

CHILI publisher customers represent virtually every sector imaginable. Whether the industry is web2print, magazine publishing, packaging, brand management, document creation, yearbook applications or beyond, CHILI publisher already helps make short work of even the most ambitious document editing tasks.


The Universal Graphics Engine processes any Adobe InDesign and Adobe Illustrator (alongside associated assets, colour, fonts etc) of an organisation and creates templates from that input. Once uploaded, users with a variety of skill sets – from beginners to seasoned graphics professionals – can edit these templates online. The edited templates are then exported in the proper omnichannel format to the production environment or marketing automation program serving your organisation.
