Commercial print is a mature marketplace, and it’s your efficiency which will determine your success: businesses like yours are having to do more with less, and now more so than ever!
Workflow Automation and Print Servers
From print to cash: workflow automation is critical to the commercial print operation
Workflow automation software, combined with the right production press, enables you to lower costs, shorten turnaround times, be profitable on shorter runs, and to add the bespoke print embellishments the modern client demands.
Fundamentally, automation shortens the time between printing and getting paid. Profitably.
THE FUTURE IS PRINT AUTOMATION
Quocirca’s Global Print 2025 study revealed that 64% of businesses believe that printing will remain important to their daily business even by 2025.
New inks such as neon, fluorescent, metallic, and spot embellishments all add to job complexity. Do you accept the client’s job, or lose the opportunity because you can’t compete? Automation is key to the survival of your production print operation.
Our print workflow automation software suites are affordable for any operation, easy to use and reduce operator error.
Take control of your costs!
The needs of In-Plants, small print shops of just three staff, or even huge multi-press operations, all require a modular, integrated ecosystem of tools to automate and simplify their shop’s workflow.
The objective is to streamline the production process for print shop managers and operators, reducing the labour-intensive touch points through which errors creep into the processes.
With total integration with your array of digital and even high-volume inkjet presses, as well as their multiple finishing options, the best solutions enable you to purchase only the components you need and add on as your needs evolve to create a seamless solution.
For any site, you want to minimise the learning curve so your investment may be recouped quickly. Ease-of-use becomes paramount as the industry shifts to doing more with fewer staff.
Our leading software suites come with a library of pre-built workflows to tackle the most common jobs, and they’re customisable too, so your team can be up and running after very little training. Your team will exploit graphical ‘drag and drop’ user interfaces to deliver unique workflows ‘as is’, or tailor them without any need for programmers or specialist consultants.
Finally, we believe the best solutions should be platform-neutral: use our workflow automation to power every press, regardless of manufacturer, even if you’re using inline or offline finishing.
Key benefits at a glance
- Have one workflow manage multiple, disparate jobs (see graphic above).

- Reduce manual touchpoints when preparing jobs for your press, a critical benefit when running complex jobs with metallic embellishments.
