Maybe you believe in automation myths like “My company is too small”, “Automation is complicated”,
or “I will have to change my way of working”. Don’t, because they are not true.
There is no company too small for prepress production automation. Start with automating small, repetitive tasks and expand the automation as your expertise and business grow. Automation will allow you to cope with challenges like high capacity and throughput demands.
Your prepress experts are too qualified (and valuable) to waste their time on menial, repetitive tasks. Automate tasks that don’t generate income and let your prepress production specialists take care of high value tasks.
Your company has standard processes and procedures in place. Automating prepress processes does not require that you change your way of working. Identify standard work and start your automation there.
