Esko (Booth 427) will showcase Suite 12 at GRAPH EXPO. This major update to its software suite for the packaging, label, sign making and display industries, will play a central role at Esko's booth.
With Suite 12, Esko provides answers to the challenges of modern brand execution. Enhanced 3D capabilities are pushing the "first moment of truth" further upstream in the supply chain. Packaging management tools in WebCenter 12 provide an overview on the entire packaging project and more control over each step in the process. And with Color Engine 12, a major breakthrough is set for consistent and accurate color reproduction.
Suite 12 brings additional productivity and efficiencies to the user. The new releases of the flagship applications ArtiosCAD, ArtPro, PackEdge, DeskPack and Studio combine interactive editing power and integration with workflow automation and color management. Stunning structural design in 3D and realistic graphics editing and visualization of a package "in context" speeds up the production process and is an efficient QC tool, reducing the risk at human errors. Mobile interaction with the workflow is now possible, and with the Internet as a backbone for collaboration and resource-sharing, Suite 12 software manages and automates every step of the production workflow.
Originally designed as an online collaboration and approval tool, WebCenter 12 has evolved into a true packaging management solution. Specify packaging requirements, manage packaging assets and oversee the entire design and production process: WebCenter 12 creates a competitive advantage.
Fully integrated with Automation Engine and ArtiosCAD, WebCenter 12 acts as a Web-to-Production portal and involves the packaging buyer more deeply in the execution of package design and production. Design requests are created automatically and a range of tasks is executed on the workflow server without any operator intervention. WebCenter also acts as the backbone for ArtiosCAD Enterprise which enables sharing of all packaging structural assets - including designs and board specifications - between multiple packaging production facilities.
