PDF Quality Control and Automation with No Human Intervention With almost ten years in the marketplace and over 100,000 users worldwide, Enfocus is reaching deeper into the growing digital and quick print segments with increasingly advanced PDF applications. These solutions were designed for novices through expert production personnel, for the fastest turnaround as well as highest quality commercial work. The company’s Executive Vice President, Patrick Van Dam, says that Enfocus’ strong development path over the years has allowed the company to build increasing intelligence into its PDF solutions, in order to relieve graphic arts and communications professionals of time-consuming processes that can be automated without quality compromise. “The features that made our technology so popular with conventional graphic arts professionals are now part and parcel of our more advanced, and automated, solutions. As a result, everyone from in-house marketing personnel through to designers and printers can be assured that their PDF files will stay ‘on course’ from creation through output,” says Van Dam. All Enfocus Products Use Certified PDF Technology for Quality Control All Enfocus products are built on the company’s Certified PDF technology, which insures reliable file exchange from creation through processing, review, approval, and output. Files that are “Certified PDF” are guaranteed to conform to print and output specifications and therefore, print properly the first time.
