Xerox has made a number of upgrades to its FreeFlow® Digital Workflow Collection giving printers innovative ways to maximise time, productivity and resources.
FreeFlow Variable Information Suite
New to the FreeFlow Variable Information (VI) Suite is an expanded feature set to support a PDF workflow. Both VI Design Express and VI Design Pro can now create PDF files right at a workstation. Users can select the best output option for their needs based on speed, flexibility and cost.
This update supports PDF objects as variable resources and is compliant with industry standards.
Debuting for the first time in South Africa are two workflow solutions that address common production frustrations:
IntegratedPLUS Finishing Solution for Booklets – eliminates bottlenecks often associated with in-line and off-line booklet production, allowing more jobs to be completed faster. A touch-less workflow in prepress operations increases uptime by removing the need for manual prepress and finisher setup – booklet jobs are preflighted and imposed according to the requirements of each unique job. Also, in-line finishing devices can be shared with multiple printers in a shop, maximising productivity and flexibility.
FreeFlow Fleet Navigator – establishes a common workflow to send jobs to various multi-vendor devices within a print shop. By doing so, costs can be reduced by selecting the right press based on the economics of the job. The automation feature ensures that the job is ticketed only once and that programming is maintained throughout the production cycle, regardless of the devices being used. This eliminates the need for additional operators or training, saving time and money.
