Navigator Elite Workflow is designed for prepress departments in need of no-nonsense, productive, and economical solutions that combine operator convenience with all the tools necessary to effectively drive prepress work to the pressroom. Some of those tools include:
- Integrated Imposition

An exceptional tool for job tracking, load balancing, PDF creation, preflighting and automated job preparation; Navigator Elite Workflow includes features and capabilities that can substantially increase the productivity of the prepress department.
Imposition Integrator stores impositions within the workflow alongside single-page files, preflight reports, proofs, and plate files. The Imposition Integrator was initially developed to work with Dynagram's inpO2, but will work with other imposition solutions as well.
Ink Remapping allows the user to easily re-assign inks to specific plates, ensuring the proper numbers of plates are created for each job.
Scriptable Hot Folders allow users to define the workflow to fit their needs, customizing the way Navigator Elite Workflow routes incoming jobs.
KeySetter ink key calculator option prints a clearly labeled color chart of the calculated press ink key settings for each job, saving make-ready time even on presses without electronic ink key adjusters.
PRINTERnet, Xitron's affordable web-to-print solution option, automates customer job submission, preflighting and raster proofing (from the production RIP) through a simple web interface. With PRINTERnet, the prepress operator's first interaction with a new job is often just a matter of releasing it to output.
Xitron offers Navigator Elite Workflow bundles in North America through Xitron's extensive network of prepress workflow solution providers. Outside North America, Xitron dealers and distributors provide somewhat similarly configured workflow solutions.
