Fujifilm Europe Partners with Aleyant Pressero for Web-to-Print Solution
Thursday, February 04, 2016
New, streamlined order entry integration deployed across Europe
Fujifilm Europe today announces a new partnership with Aleyant, an innovative leader in providing robust software services to the graphic communications industry, involving its Aleyant Pressero™ web-to-print solution. This partnership has evolved out of the very successful results that the Fujifilm North America Corporation has achieved since introducing Pressero™, and both Aleyant and Fujifilm Europe are working to replicate those results.
John Davies, Business Strategy and Marketing Manager for Print Production Workflow Solutions, Fujifilm Europe comments: “We are excited to be bringing this new, full service offering to our customer and prospect base across EMEA. The tools and technologies in the web-to-print space have undergone a significant evolution, and we did our homework to find the best approach – not only for today but for the future. We have been impressed with the quality of the Pressero™ solution, Aleyant’s team and vision, and how easy it has been to work with them in getting this integration completed.” Implementing web-to-print successfully requires carefully guiding customers through the process and Aleyant has demonstrated that it has the required personnel and skills to deliver this.
In addition, Aleyant has created a special web-to-print integration for Fujifilm’s XMF Workflow. The powerful integration enables automated transmission of job data from a web storefront directly into the XMF Workflow, enabling automated production and job submission, including the selection of an appropriate imposition template, for improved operational efficiency, reduced errors and faster time to market.
“We are pleased to expand our growing library of integrations by partnering with Fujifilm Europe,” said Greg Salzman, Aleyant’s President. “Fujifilm has an impressive installed base in the commercial printing industry across Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and we will work with its customers to help develop an even more efficient workflow, more effective customer-facing web interface, and the ability to respond more quickly to customers in order to maintain a competitive advantage.”
Aleyant Pressero™ is a comprehensive but affordable and easy-to-use cloud-based B2B or B2C online storefront solution that can quickly and easily be customised to individual client needs. This includes a ‘mobile-first’ design for branded sites for use on any viewing device. Core components of Pressero™ include Aleyant eDocBuilder™, a web-based and online design and variable data publishing system built specifically to easily integrate into Aleyant or third-party web-to-print or MIS solutions. eDocBuilder™ features advanced typography control, imposition, scripting support, PDF workflows, rapid template creation, Excel merge capabilities and more.
Aleyant’s Automated Workflow Integrator™ (AWI) uses a rules-based approach to automate such processes as file renaming, unzipping zipped files, or sending files and metadata directly to a RIP for processing, eliminating multiple steps in the workflow. Finally, Aleyant PrintJobManager™ is MIS/ERP simplified. It uses a new mobile, cloud-based approach to MIS that includes a fast means of generating market-driven pricing, job management, inventory control, planning and estimating.
