More productivity and effectiveness with the workflow management system Workspace Pro - Automation at its best

As part of “Industry 4.0” the goal is not only to automate recurring tasks and single process steps, but to combine them into workflows and to enable the entire workflow to run automatically based on software systems. An IT-based workflow management system like Workspace Pro connects single automatized process steps – mostly through interfaces – and enables an efficient and reliable collaboration between human being and machine.
There are already existing software solutions for single process steps as imposition, formatting (as bleed or generate varnish and white masks), preflighting, image processing, halftone printing and if applicable inksaving, which fulfill these functions mostly automated. By combining individual software programs with Workspace Pro, the entire process can be run fully automatically. Once the print data has been uploaded to the FTP server or hot folder, or sent by e-mail, Workspace Pro sends the print file automatically through each individual step in the process. Workspace Pro reduces the risk of errors while reducing turnaround times.

Return on Investment: Maximum time and cost savings due to maximum level of automation in the prepress stage

Icon-Return on Investment

Error avoidance: With an automated workflow manual interventions are eliminated and therefore not only do costs fall but so do the numbers of mistakes and misprints.
Cost reduction: Every single manual process step increases costs. In order to withstand the massive price pressure the printing industry experiences today, it is necessary to use the potential savings of an efficiently designed workflow.
Quicker turnaround for print jobs and increased throughput: With a comprehensive workflow automatization, last-minute changes and additional customizations can be implemented without adjusting deadlines accordingly.
Enhanced transparency and traceability: Automatic tracking leads to more efficient planning and therefore to a significant reduction in downtime and delays that can frequently arise due to a lack of internal or external communication with the customer.
It clearly shows: To stay competitive in today’s business and to push innovative business ideas ahead, service providers must completely rely on a fully automated workflow management system. Only in that way a rising number of print jobs with decreasing volumes and high levels of complexity can be produced while efficiency can be increased and costs reduced.
