It is inherently difficult to manage a print shop with multi-vendor devices with all of the unique requirements for job preparation and submission. Load balancing, job routing, workflow differences and diverse operator skill sets can all be challenges. Imagine a workflow software that can take a job that was originally created and ticketed for one device, and easily send it to any other printer on your floor based on things like features and economics. With the FreeFlow Fleet Navigator solution, this is now a reality.

Submit from Xerox workflows to drive competitive equipment
Submit jobs created by competitive workflows to drive Xerox equipment
Improve asset utilization: direct print jobs to the device of your choice based on economics, features or availability
Reduce the time required to set up jobs using automation with a simple and intuitive visual interface that novice users can master quickly
Very few print shops rely on just one vendor. Yet every printer brand requires its own unique workflow and print instructions, making it difficult to navigate in a multi-vendor environment.
Jobs must be prepared separately for each digital press manufacturer
You must select a digital press when jobs enter the shop, without knowing which presses will be busy when it comes time to print
Operators need to learn diverse print preparation and submission requirements for each press in your shop
Manually processing jobs is time-consuming, and can lead to inconsistency and errors
Your customers expect consistent quality and quick turnarounds
With the FreeFlow Fleet Navigator, Xerox can help. When you centralize job submission and management to one workflow, you can optimize the efficiency of your entire operation. You can prepare a job with a host of makeready applications or simply select an existing legacy job. Fleet Navigator enables you to prepare your jobs with any workflow, eliminating the need to choose as soon as the job arrives. At print time, you can send your job to multiple brand digital presses based on the job requirements. The job will automatically arrive at the printer of choice and print as expected.
That means you can focus directly on what matters most to your print operation:
Delighting your customers with new applications
Reducing costs with less operator time
Producing more jobs by optimizing every print device
