Agfa announced Cloud-based PrintSphere, a shared service that allows printers to exchange files with employees and customers.
Integrated with Apogee Prepress or Asanti, prepress operators can assign users to specific jobs. An automated messaging system invites these assigned parties to deliver files for a particular job. PrintSphere can also be used to create archives of previous jobs, available to a select number of customers.
PrintSphere is accessible through the official website www.printsphere.com or via client applications for Windows, Mac, and mobile. Uploaded data automatically synchronises with local folders, making files available on-site as well.
‘PrintSphere automates data intake, creates off-site backups of critical production databases, and picks up Web-to-print orders to make them available on the local network,’ said Andy Grant, head of software, Agfa Graphics.
