EskoArtwork will 'Connect More!' at Ipex 2010 with the launch of its new Automation Engine 10 workflow server software.
Automation Engine 10 is part of Suite 10, the EskoArtwork packaging and print pre-production software. As a further development on established workflow solutions, Automation Engine 10 sets a new standard for prepress workflow automation with its easy to set-up and easy to operate dynamic workflows. Automation Engine 10 enables unseen and extensive automation and rock-solid quality control. It further reduces manual operator interaction to a minimum, ultimately increasing throughput and efficiency.
With Automation Engine 10, EskoArtwork has built an enterprise-ready workflow by merging three well-known and proven server technologies into a single platform. BackStage serves as the architectural foundation of Automation Engine 10, with database driven job management, extensive JDF based MIS integration capabilities and excellent scalability. Odystar contributions include the conditional automation capabilities, the easy-to-use graphics user interface, the PDF native processing tools and the Shuttle technology. From Nexus, EskoArtwork has taken many of the workflow features, including the ability to re-run parts of a workflow with modified parameters and all of the ArtPro automation.
