ES 2, a streamlined customer-facing environment, combines tasks such as color accurate softproofing with the business logic of project planning, with milestones and sophisticated approval processes. Sharing joint projects with participants of the production workflow from creative to print production is easy, through any standard web browser. With access rights, all users are involved at the appropriate stages of the production cycle, including review and approval of corrections and revisions. The process is fully automated, yet customizable for specific needs.
ES technology is built on a high performance prepress engine, color-certified remote softproofing for high-resolution document viewing, and job-based project management for step-by-step tracking.
With optional TWIST features, automation reaches nearly unlimited possibilities, by adding prepress tasks as milestones, anywhere between the first artwork draft and final imposed form. Tasks and priorities are assigned to any project aspect, whether a single file or a user group.
Interacting with ES is straightforward. Its own FTP server can upload files, and production parameters can be passed at file delivery through the web interface. For travelers without access to a web browser, DIALOGUE Touch offers all ES softproof, annotation and approval features in an App for Apple's iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.
