Automate Steps to Prepare Print Job

In a mature marketplace operation, efficiency is a must for long term success. Companies are looking for ways to do more with less. This is where FreeFlow® Core comes into the picture: it automates the process steps required to prepare a job for print. Core’s flexibility and scalability, including on-premise and cloud configurations, means there is an automation solution for any size print shop.

Workflow software has never been this strong—or this simple—until now. This browser-based or on-premise solution intelligently automates and integrates the processing of print jobs, from file preparation to final production, for a touchless workflow that operates easily, adapts effortlessly, scales quickly and delivers consistently.

Automation is no longer just for big guys. Whether your organisation is 3 or 300 people, FreeFlow Core offers a highly productive workflow solution. Multiple product configurations and attractive price points mean even small- to medium-sized organisations now have automation within reach. And no matter how many print engines you have, there is never an additional charge.

Key Challenges

  • Keeping cost down – The print marketplace is as competitive as ever, and price pressure continues to rise.
  • Delivering quality – Customers’ expectations continue to rise with respect to the quality of their print products.
  • Quicker turnaround times – Customers expect most things to be done in a few days, not a few weeks.
  • Smaller run lengths – As jobs get smaller, inefficiencies in your print process become exposed.
  • More small jobs – With smaller run lengths, you need to push more jobs through your shop.
  • Multiple systems – Your workflow has evolved over time. It can be difficult to introduce a new system.
  • Operator skillset – As solutions become more complex, do you have the resources to properly run a new solution?
