OneVision's Book Automation Suite is a comprehensive software solution developed particularly for book publishers to gain maximum quality and high efficiency even for minimal editions.
The combination of a workflow management system with an extensive prepress package and special tools for book printing like automated impositioning automates the print and production processes of book publisher. The flexible workflow management system enables book publisher to define their production processes individually, standardize them and let them run completely automatically. The prepress package checks incoming print jobs for possible errors, corrects and normalizes them and creates error-free print files (ISO-standard compliant) for a smooth, error-free printing. Due to the high level of automation process times are significantly reduced.
Specific production steps – especially needed by book printers – like split and merge of content and cover pages or impositioning can be done fully automatically. As a result errors can be avoided while your press utilization, efficiency and printing quality increases.
OneVision's Book Automation Suite is the perfect interplay between your high-speed printing presses and your print files. Avoid errors and reprints, adjust and automate your production processes at any time and benefit from more productivity.
