Thursday, October 11, 2018

Wheaton, Ill., and Montreal, Canada – Aleyant, an innovative leader in providing robust software services to the graphic communications industry at value-driven prices, and Ultimate TechnoGraphics, leader in imposition and print finishing software, will jointly present their solutions to deliver a unique end-to-end print workflow automation solution at booth 752 at the SGIA show in Las Vegas, October 18-20, 2018. The mix of Aleyant’s full suite of order entry and production automation solutions with Impostrip® Automation creates the Intelligent Print Workflow.

The combination of these award-winning solutions creates a complete and easily customizable automated workflow from order entry to print.

With PrintJobManager, Aleyant’s estimating, pricing and production management solution, a print service provider(PSP) can price any product from material, equipment and labor costs. This enables pricing controlled in one location to provide instant pricing for orders whether through an online store or via mobile device. Pricing information is then pushed automatically to Pressero, online storefront solution, which instantly updates pricing for the storefront items in real-time.

Within Pressero, PSPs can sell off-the-shelf and custom items via either the built-in eDocBuilder online design templates or customer supplied artwork. tFLOW, Aleyant’s automated prepress, approval and collaboration workflow solution, can auto-receive files via Pressero then send them directly to Ultimate Impostrip®.

“Adding Ultimate Impostrip® Automation to the mix enables an additional layer of automation, automatically imposing, nesting and generating the cut file for finishing,” says Ray Duval, Director of Solution Sales. “Rules-based automation provided by Ultimate Impostrip® gives users full control over page position, variable gutters, bleeds, page-spread, page scaling, sets of marks, and barcodes or banner sheets by following an easy and user-friendly ticketing process.”

Ultimate Impostrip® Automation is composed of several advanced tools. From customizable and dynamic banner content for tracking and positioning over-imposed gang run sheets to powerful and yet flexible marks profiles defining exact position of each mark and barcode, the added features enables a completely dynamic workflow. Ultimate Impostrip® new PDF repository folder, connected to Pressero, allows for placing PDF files referenced in XML in one single “Repository’’. Ultimate Impostrip® imposition-controlled XML schema supports free-form ganging templates for ganging jobs of varied types onto one press sheet.

“Ultimate Impostrip® integrated with Pressero provides the production efficiency and quality required to deliver short runs on time, all the time” says Ray Duval.
