Xerox® FreeFlow® Core

Simply Streamline

Eliminate repetitive, time consuming, costly manual processes that bog down print operations with the industry’s most flexible and easy-to-use prepress software.

Manual processes take more time—and reduce potential profit—bogging down your print operation.

Xerox® FreeFlow® Core eliminates time-consuming manual tasks, helping to get jobs done in a fraction of the usual time with automated, rules-based intelligence and super-efficient touchless workflows.

“FreeFlow Core has converted a multi-hour, error prone file processing step into a two-step, drag and drop process that provides all the automation and success verification we, and our customers need.”

— David Gardner, Digital Print Manager, Alphagraphics of Sandy, UT

Getting Started with Xerox® FreeFlow® Core

Join our webinar to help streamline your pre-press workflow and say goodbye to touchpoints and bottlenecks.

Eliminate and accelerate tasks from file prep to final production

With FreeFlow Core’s intelligent, rules-based automation, you can streamline job production from start to finish by eliminating manual tasks by automating critical prepress, makeready, and job routing steps—giving back time and profit.

  • Inspect and correct jobs on the fly, without going back to the source material

  • Maximise RIP and press performance with smart PDF optimisation, including image resolution, embedded fonts, transparency adjustment, colour management and more

  • Automate imposition and job routing

  • Easily add speciality embellishments—metallics, white, clear fluorescents, and Pantones—right from the press, with no designer

Accelerate production with preset workflows

FreeFlow Core comes with a set of ready-to-use Xerox® FreeFlow® Core Engine Accelerators: a set of pre-built workflows and tools designed to leverage printer-specific capabilities and features. These powerful tools are provided free of charge—and can significantly impact production time.

A modular solution

FreeFlow Core is available in multiple configurations tailored to your shop size and needs. Modular architecture and a browser-based user experience make it easy for any shop from small to enterprise-level to start boosting profit potential today. Additional modules can always be added later as needed:

  • FreeFlow® Advanced Prepress module provides powerful tools for PDF optimisation, colour management, document manipulation and annotation.

  • FreeFlow® Advanced Automation module automates your entire production process by transforming manual steps in your workflow into programmed actions.

  • FreeFlow® Output Management module adds the ability to implement even smarter decision making regarding when and where your jobs will be printed.

  • FreeFlow® Variable Data module enables FreeFlow® Core to accept Xerox® Variable Information Production PrintWare (VIPP®) jobs and PDF/VT jobs, delivering benchmark productivity in personalised communication workflows.

“FreeFlow automates imposition for all portal orders, allows CSRs to add bleed, preflight files and impose press sheets—skipping prepress altogether. I wouldn’t trade it for anything.”

— John Taylor, President, Minuteman Press of Nashville, TN

Automatic savings: Let’s do the math

FreeFlow® Core® automation can add up to some serious savings. Each of the examples below are based on data published in InfoTrends 2019 WE and NA Production Software Investment Outlook and assume an average of 400 jobs per month:

$80K Monthly savings just by REMOVING WASTE

$11,320 Monthly savings just by AUTOMATING IMPOSITION

$10,425 Monthly savings just by leveraging ELECTRONIC PROOFING

It’s easy to see how FreeFlow® Core can free up valuable hours so they can be spent on higher-value, revenue-driving outreach and sales.

Contact your Xerox Rep for more information on how these numbers were derived, and see how they’ll add up for you!

“FreeFlow Core has been a great asset—and it’s not only for production. It also frees up the graphics department to do more creative jobs instead of being tied to imposing and setting up for laser cutting.”

— Dan Berchtold, Graphic Designer, PIP of Peioria, IL
