Xerox expands options in workflow tools

Friday, May 14, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Rochester, NY – Xerox Corporation has expanded the workflow options available on its high-end digital color presses – opening revenue opportunities and improving productivity for print service providers.

GMC Software Technology's PrintNet software is now available for the Xerox iGen4 Presses and 490/980 Color Continuous Feed printer; it is an ideal solution for print providers handling large volume transactional jobs.

GMC's PrintNet software reduces programming time up to 60 percent and improves job turnaround time up to 400 percent for applications such as bills, policies and invoices. Additionally, a fully integrated design solution allows for customization, approval, production and color management support.

Companies choosing PrintNet receive a comprehensive review of their current environment with detailed work process implementation plans from Xerox and GMC, a Xerox Business Innovation Partner.

"Our approach is unique," said Scott Baker, vice president, Worldwide Business Development, GMC. "In addition to addressing print providers' specific needs, we have a program to help them develop future opportunities for business growth."

Xerox customer Telemail, one of the largest service bureaus in Madrid, uses PrintNet with its 490/980 Color Continuous Feed printer to produce transpromo statements that meet a growing demand from financial services customers. 

"PrintNet is the best software for delivering variable data and transpromo applications," said Agust'n Minaya, managing director, Telemail. "We use Xerox's 490/980 Color Continuous Feed printer for transpromo work, and GMC's software complements this technology perfectly."

FreeFlow Print Server version 8
Xerox FreeFlow Print Server version 8, an enhanced version of the color server that drives the Xerox Color 800/1000 Presses, will open additional revenue opportunities for print providers by streamlining the production process. New features include:
- Xerox Consistent Color mode, combined with advanced profiling technology and refined calibration technique, provides built-in color management across multiple devices.
- Data driven subsets allow for easier management and creation of variable data print jobs.
- Book production supports additional finishing options and allows for compatibility with additional finishing devices.
- Another enhancement to the FreeFlow Print Server version 8 is the integration with Adobe PDF Print Engine – allowing for quick and reliable printing of native Adobe Portable Document Format files. Adobe PDF Print Engine is available on the Xerox Color 800/1000 Presses.

The technology will be on display in the Xerox stand at IPEX 2010, Hall 7, May 18-25 in Birmingham, U.K.
