The client's existing Enfocus PitStop Pro software, along with the newly purchased PitStop Server, works with Switch to set up preflight profiles that check incoming files, or action lists that identify PDF objects and fix files.
"Switch is made to connect and automate production components and operations that no one expects to be able to connect. David Zwang and his colleagues understand how Switch can be utilized, to maximize existing hardware and software and the way they can work together; effectively creating custom 'super-solutions'," says Elli Cloots, Enfocus Director of Product Management. "This PacRim project is a great example."
Ultimate's Impostrip OnDemand Scalable imposition application
To maximize the level of automation to work with the existing Novavision PrintVis ERP system, and to fulfill increased volumes while accommodating a viable growth path; the team typically selects Ultimate's Impostrip OnDemand Scalable imposition application.
Impostrip OnDemand Scalable's unique architecture for load balancing allows for the addition of as many imposition engine instances as needed to support concurrent volume requirements. The automation features of Ultimate OnDemand Scalable are designed to be flexible with page sizes and other document attributes, and supports various imposition requirements of a mixed digital and offset production facility.
Since the initial installation, functionality has improved significantly due to the introduction of an Impostrip OnDemand configurator for Enfocus Switch.
Joanne David, President and CEO, Ultimate Technographics, says, "Impostrip OnDemand's engine offers a great level of automation facilitating the use of JDF extensions in order to complete the connectivity with PrintVis MIS. Enfocus Switch using the Impostrip configurator streamlines the work through all the steps in the most productive way. The benefits are real for the customer.''
The company also now utilizes CGS' ORIS Press Matcher as its color server. More details about ORIS, as well as other technologies' contributions to the success of the organization's digital transition, can be found in the whitepaper/case study.
The company reports great success with technology implementations, and is now maximizing profits and increasing growth by overcoming the challenges during its transitional phase from offset to digital.
The organization has been able to increase responsiveness to clients; reduce production labor costs, thereby allowing staff to focus on growth areas and spend less time engaging in repetitive, non-productive activities; shorten cycle times and decrease waste; all with minimal capital outlay.
Zwang concludes, "This forward-thinking company is now able to sufficiently support both current market demands as well as be prepared for future changes, with the implementation of this 'smart' technology."
