Web-to-print workflow automation with one-stop shop

With today’s technology and digitalization, there are no limits creating your own photo objects online. Whether photo books, photo albums, photo calendars, photo canvases, invitation cards or decorative objects, the possibilities are endless. These products and more are realised by the French print service provider Photoweb as web-to-print services. In order to handle fluctuating orders and to easily integrate new products and equipment, the company has been relying on OneVision’s automation software since 2020.

More efficiency through automated processes

Photoweb benefits in particular from print workflow automation:

  • Barcode based production control
  • Dynamic imposition
  • Label with job information
  • Intelligent handling of incoming orders

details you
should know:

Barcode based production control

The software places barcodes on the print forms. Information on format, quantity, number of pages, and other production parameters are stored there. The machines adjust themselves according to this information.

Dynamic imposition

The flexible and powerful imposition function enables efficient placement of print files based on the page format.

Label with job information

A label is automatically generated for each order, which contains order-specific information such as product and job / order number, color codes, textual information, and many more.

Intelligent handling of incoming orders

Thanks to automated and intelligent assembly lines, a large volume of very individualized incoming jobs are no longer a challenge.


Challenges become strengths

  • Smooth processes
    A fully automated production workflow replaces manual, error-prone work steps and guarantees high quality print products.
  • Seamless integration
    The direct connection of the workflow management system to the file input and the production machines enables an efficient print workflow automation.
  • Independence from IT resources
    The modularity of the software allows individual configuration and short-term changes of the processes; completely independent of IT.
  • Time savings
    Thanks to automated file management and file preparation, short delivery times – such as same day or next day delivery – can bemet.


Advantages through digitized, automated processes

  • The replacement of the internally made software allows the production team to be independent from IT.
  • Multiple work modes are possible such as automatic, manual or a mix of both.
  • Manage impositions via templates or dynamically according to criteria.

Easily scalable to handle a large volume of data.
