Your Software Solution for High-Quality Megaposters

Megaposters are without a doubt the stars of outdoor advertising and guaranteed eyecatchers for a wide range of target groups. However, there are a number of challenges to overcome from order entry to the finished megaposter. Frequently recurring manual steps in print production are both time-consuming and error-prone.

At the same time, the time window for delivery is getting shorter and the cost pressure experienced as a print service provider is getting higher. This was also the experience of the Hamburg-based wide format printer Kleinhempel GmbH. Since 2019, the traditional entrepreneur has therefore been taking a new path: that of workflow automation in cooperation with OneVision software.

=> Growth potential thanks to faster throughput times

 

Challenges become strengths

  • Create growth potential

Reduction of throughput times – especially when it comes to very large files – from 3hrs to an average of 5 minutes per job creates capacities for higher productivity and thus achieves increases in turnover.

  • Reliable planning

Automation stands for transparency of the projects and facilitates production planning, which saves material and reduces set-up times.

  • Smooth processes

Fully automated workflow replaces manual, error-prone work for high-quality print products.

  • Time savings

Thanks to the function Tile Pages, product parts such as sheets are automatically calculated and panelled.


More efficiency through automated processes

  • More visibility thanks to individual reports

The generation of an internal, printed overview with job-specific information (e.g. print size, required material) provides transparency in production and makes a project more manageable.

  • Easing the workload in post-production

The automated motif labelling outside the visible area facilitates assembling the megaposters. The individual sheets can be identified, arranged and joined more quickly.

  • Perfect-fit optimization of the print data

Eyelet markings and hemstitches are automatically added to the production files and no longer have to be created manually.

  • Customer-oriented work

Automated creation of a dispatch label (content, motif, material) for the end customer by means of the function “Variable data printing”.


Comparison: Initial situation – digitally automated screen printing production workflow

Working with traditional, manual processes

  • Prepress staff spends up to 90% of their time on recurring tasks that do not generate revenue

  • 30 manual steps to check the print job and correct errors

  • Manual division of the poster sheets into equal-sized panels using layout software

  • Eyelets and hemstitches are measured and added manually by prepress

    Advantages through digitized, automated processes

      • Automation software creates more space and time for other revenue-oriented tasks
      • Preflight (color management, adding bleed, flattening transparencies, etc.) is automated. Errors are detected and automatically corrected
      • Tiling of the panels and calculation of the megaposter‘s overlap are fully automated
      • Eyelet marks are automatically added to the print file according to the customer’s specifications without any additional effort
