Press release from the issuing company
Leipzig, Germany – IFRA, 17 October 2005 – Agfa announced today the availability of :Arkitex IntellTrack, an enterprise-wide tracking system that automatically acquires audit data at every point in the production workflow. :Arkitex IntellTrack eliminates the time consuming task of manual monitoring and tracking of production processes.
:Arkitex IntellTrack is based on ProImage technology. ProImage, which Agfa acquired last year, is a leading developer of browser-based digital workflow solutions for newspapers.
The system uses "intelligent tracking agents" (software modules) that have been inserted at key points along the route of production to effectively monitor files, folders and events. :Arkitex IntellTrack provides a logical picture of the entire production process giving users valuable data for process control.
:Arkitex IntellTrack integrates easily with Agfa's :Arkitex workflow systems for maximum efficiency.
"IntellTrack fits in with our strategic approach to modernise and bring efficiencies to the newspaper production process that the market has been asking for," said Andy Grant, worldwide business manager for Agfa's workflow solutions. "In the near future, you will see a convergence of Agfa's remote service tracking system, :IntellSyst, with :Arkitex IntellTrack enterprise tracking system to deliver a single, multi-tiered tracking solution."
:Arkitex IntellTrack wll be available in Q1 of 2006.
