More orders in less time with workflow automation

October 20 2015

Customization implies automation

Today’s sign and display business is marked by the production of customized articles, and that trend is only on the rise. Along with that, turnaround times seem to shorten by the order.

How can you follow up on these specific orders, meeting your customers' tight deadlines and still remaining profitable?

If you are not planning on expanding your human capital, a new way of processing orders imposes itself. In that case workflow automation is the answer.

A new standard for prepress workflow

Automation brings a structured and consistent way of processing incoming files. The automated workflow guides new jobs to standardized preflight and job preparation.

 

Integrated finishing solution

To really streamline the process between incoming customer files and printing and finishing, an integrated finishing solution is the best way to move forward.

  • Esko’s prepress workflow automation software Automation Engine increases efficiency and throughput.
  • A Kongsberg digital finishing device raises flexibility and scope for individually tailored output.
