Suite 14 focuses on 5 key directions in the future of packaging workflows
Improved workflow automation:
Smart workflow tickets route designs automatically to a press-ready printing plate. Workflow automation will stretch beyond printing and finishing and integrates with logistics at the end of the line.
Operator interaction is limited to exception handling and quality checking. Open industry standards enable integration with business systems and data silo’s, regardless of physical location. Cloud based packaging management systems interface with prepress workflow serves in open and transparent way.
The basis for a lights-out workflow is a smart design template. Content is strictly separated from creation: the designer determines the looks of the pack “by example” and within a brand guidelines framework.
Critical content resides securely in the cloud-based packaging management system of the brand owner. No more ‘copy and paste’ in Adobe Illustrator but linking smart objects to secure and approved content in a database. This level of automation guarantees brand consistency and legal compliance at a maximum productivity and shortest time to market.
