Enfocus' Switch Undergoes a Metamorphosis
Thursday, March 08, 2012
Press release from the issuing company
Enfocus today announces that the Switch product line has undergone a metamorphosis: restructured to make it easier for customers to immediately get faster, higher quality turnaround from their existing systems’ workflows. Enfocus will show Switch in its newest iteration at the drupa 2012 exhibit Hall 8b, Stand A23.
Switch Core Engine – The Foundation
Switch Core Engine enables powerful file management such as sorting, routing, and tracking of files. Companies are confronted with these kinds of tasks on a daily basis. Automation gives them the ability to reduce errors and standardize procedures, thus reducing costs. The Switch Core Engine also enables PDF-specific handling, like split and merge PDF files. To lift the workflow to an intelligent level, Switch enables operators to utilize the information already available in jobs to make routing decisions based, for example, on file naming conventions, the number of pages or colors, etc.
For Integration Requirements
Enables integration, control and automation of the most popular 3rd party, Enfocus Crossroads partner applications in the graphic arts industry. Building solutions for preflight, imposition, color management and many more applications is a breeze with those ready to use configurators. Operators can use the tools they are already using today, or can feel free to choose the tools that suit their needs best.
The Database module for Switch automates the communication between a database application and Switch. Scripting is no longer required, making it easier and faster for customers and integrators to build communication paths between Switch and an MIS or any database.
Much like the database module, this module enhances workflow intelligence by using existing information stored in XML or JDF tickets, or as XMP data.
Enables Switch to take advantage of custom-developed Visual Basic Scripts, Java Scripts or AppleScripts. A separate SwitchScripter application is provided to assist the user in development and debugging of scripts. This module literally makes the sky the limit as it gives operators the freedom to completely customize workflows to their needs.
To boost performance of the Switch Core Engine and get the ultimate processing power out of advanced hardware configurations with multiple processors and high amounts of RAM memory, those who choose this module can extend the number of processes that Switch is executing simultaneously.
Stand-Alone Functionality and Communication Modules
SwitchClient Module is a separate desktop application that is used to submit jobs into Switch flows, and is used to interact with jobs where required.
Switch Web Services Module:
This module enables 3rd party applications such as web portals to integrate and drive Switch. Organizations can improve customer service by allowing customers to submit files directly from a familiar environment like the company website. This enables them to track and approve jobs directly in Switch, without having to leave the comfort zone of the company website.
Users and their IT departments can count on extra peace of mind through SwitchProxy. This proxy server ensures network security and business continuity: clients can always deliver data to the company’s server -- even while it is being maintained or updated.
