“Owing to the different options with which a PDF file may be created, a number of client files were defective. We often had to give our clients step-by-step instructions on how to prepare a PDF file and that consumed a lot of time”, recalls Lucas Muller, Christian Döring’s prepress manager... “Only three clicks and I have my data in the printing machine. This is fantastic! compared to what we had before, we have improved our processing times by 30%. This time savings can be used for other projects”.
“Having used Asura and Solvero for a long time, the quality of OneVision solutions was already well known. In the Asura Enterprise project, the concept, testing period and the excellent support of OneVision in the project phase have been very convincing."
“By the use of a defined output standard we are now able to rely on the security of the transmission and the quality of the printing production. We will achieve the return on our investment in less than one year“, comments the Head of the Pre-press Department. This is the reason why the International Herald Tribune is highly satisfied with OneVision products: „Asura is our seal for data quality, and Solvero is our Swiss army knife of Desktop Publishing.“
“We wanted to improve the quality of our products”, explains Johan Leferink, New Technology Manager at Fairfax. “To cut down on “make goods” and refunds we needed software that automatically checked and optimised all incoming files rather than handling all files manually. We wanted to make sure, that every ad is printed as intended – without our intervention.” [...] “We especially appreciate the ink weight measurement. This offers us a super opportunity to decrease costs. Also the colour options in OneVision Asura are the most extensive in the industry.”
“Time is an important factor when producing magazines. Our advertising customers expect a professional data reception and processing – be it within or after working hours. Using Asura and Asura Enterprise we get printable files from the very beginning and can guarantee the adherence to delivery dates. In that way we create an additional benefit for our advertising customers and relieve our order administration.”
“Before using OneVision software we had to do a lot of manual correction: Changing page formats, color conversions and so on. A lot of annoying work as the production departments of course do not know about the printing processes and thus do not know how to construct a file in the right way for printing”, explains Robert Krause... “Today hardly any manual intervention is necessary to prepare files for print. Utilizing Asura Pro the files are automatically adapted to the requirements of the different printers, their workflow and RIP – just perfect.”
