Esko’s latest software release delivers higher levels of speed, consistency and collaboration within the print and packaging ecosystem.
‘In the face of mounting challenges for brands and their label and packaging partners, we are continuously working on improving our solutions to address the growing business need to better connect people, processes and technologies,’ said Jan De Roeck, Esko Director of Marketing, Industry Relations and Strategy.
‘With software version 23.07, we are further extending the availability of Share and Approve, our cloud native service that enables users to seamlessly connect their prepress to their customers and stakeholders with a new gateway through to their artwork editor applications. Including this innovation in Esko editor software delivers greater capability across a shared platform, fulfilling our promise to help businesses automate, connect and accelerate the go-to-market process,’ said De Roeck. ‘We are delivering against our vision to improve the way the industry connects with their stakeholders and customers with a platform that streamlines and simplifies entire approval cycles.
‘With 50 complimentary approval cycles each month, Share and Approve enables users to share files, automate workflows, gather approvals, track milestones, and ultimately speed up approval cycles by as much as three times,’ explained De Roeck. ‘Anyone can join, anywhere, for free, and connect their processes to Esko’s cloud-based platform. This means quick accessibility, without the need to download any software, and the ability to connect from anywhere on any device.
‘We are also introducing AVT AutoSet for Digital, our new complete print inspection solution for any workflow for digitally printed labels production, which delivers unparalleled quality control to reduce waste and boost efficiency,’ he said. ‘Combining the accuracy and speed of the AVT Helios D 100% print inspection unit with the automation of AVT AutoSet for Digital empowers operators to automatically upload and switch between jobs, while the connectivity of AVT WorkFlow Link Digital enables them to record, scan and edit multiple jobs on the same roll.’
De Roeck explained how increased cloud features within Esko software 23.07 deliver further significant benefits to users. ‘We know the importance of speed, simplification of processes across the workflow and access for all, wherever they may be,’ he said. ‘With this latest version, we have introduced additional functionality, ensuring users can make the most of the tools at their disposal.
‘Through increasing the integration of products across the entire Esko portfolio, users are able to connect with one another like never before, bringing more value to their own business as well as their customers,’ he said.
