Your Challenges

Digital printing offers more and more opportunities when graphic designers and prepress operators are challenged with various preparations of jobs for printing several times a day. These job preparations are critical and take away from their main expertise and responsibilities.

Key Challenges

  • Manual finishing creates a bottleneck in digital printing, preventing business growth.
  • Manual finishing causes printed paper waste when doing trial set-up.
  • Manual configuration of bindery equipment is prone to errors, causing costly reprints.
  • Operator time lost on repetitive tasks and machine configurations.
  • Manual finishing leads to lack of pre-validation of jobs for integrity for example cover and blocks, or booklet sheets.
  • Lack of connectivity between pre- and post-press leads to lack of tracking data for reports and production management.
