"Our panelists did an excellent job of articulating how they have automated the planning process, and the impact it has had on their organizations," said Sherburne. "One aspect that was emphasized repeatedly was the need to take touches out of the job process from end to end, especially rekeying of data from one system to another. Additionally, panelists talked about moving the planning process further upstream to ensure jobs are planned as effectively as possible not only for the pressroom, but also for bindery. There were many other great suggestions, so if you were not able to join us live, please visit the archive to listen to the program."
Sherburne was joined by:
- Cory Sawatzki, Corporate Director of Operations Technology, Consolidated Graphics
- Randy Jamerson, Prepress Systems Administrator EBSCO Media
