Objective Advantage to Demonstrate True End-to-End Workflow Automation at Graph Expo 2006
Press release from the issuing company
September 21, 2006 -- Objective Advantage (OA) will have a strong presence at this year’s Graph Expo 2006 with a series of interactive and live demonstrations of its OASymbio suite of PDF and JDF based web-enabled end-to-end automated production management workflow tools. OASymbio provides a smooth path through the print plant, decreasing manual tasks and saving print service providers both time and money.
Along with showing OASymbio on its own stand (#5256), the graphic arts software development company will also conduct demonstrations in conjunction with several partners including Baumfolder, Duplo, HP and Standard Horizon.
On its own booth (#5256), OA will team with Saepio Technologies to demonstrate OASymbio’s web-through-print capabilities. Visitors to the stand will have the opportunity to submit their contact information and see it entered into a luggage tag via Saepio’s Agilis Marketing Suite. The job will then be transmitted to OASymbio. There the luggage tag will go through the prepress and make-ready stages and be sent electronically to an HP LaserJet press, and then on to the finishing solution, a Duplo DC-645.
“The aim of our presence at Graph Expo will be to illustrate not only how effortless a true end-to-end automated workflow can be, but also to show print service providers how automation can increase efficiencies, maximize productivity and enhance their profitability,” commented Gareth O’Brien, Objective Advantage CEO.
Visitors to Graph Expo will also have the opportunity to view OASymbio on the Baumfolder stand (#2606), driving the Baumfolder ifold system. Here, visitors will see how a job is started in OASymbio and finished on the Baumfolder Pile Feed machine.
On the Duplo stand (#3846), attendees will see OASymbio Desktop in a web-to-print production workflow with the job being sent to a Xerox DocuColor 8000 before finishing in the Duplo DC-645 Production Color Finisher.
Online job submission through OASymbio Server will be shown on the HP stand (#646). Files generated in different web interfaces will be imposed via OASymbio Server and processed directly to the HP Indigo 3050 press and finished on the Duplo DC-645.
Brochure applications will be processed through OASymbio Desktop on the Standard Horizon booth (#2446). Attendees will have the chance to see brochures setup in OASymbio, printed on the DocuColor 5000 with an EFI digital front end and finished on the Standard Horizon APC-M61II Paper Cutter and AFC-566 FKT Automated Folder.
“We are pleased to be able to show OASymbio working with such a diverse field,” continued O’Brien. “Having such an extensive presence at the show really demonstrates OASymbio’s versatility.”
