We wanted to move to OS X and our old imposition solution, Dynagram's INposition Lite, for Quark didn't work in OS X or for anything other than Quark 4. So at this year's Graph Expo I started looking for Imposition solutions. The Ultimate team was very helpful at the show, and afterwards, they spent considerable time on the phone with me, and extended the demo's until I was sure this was the right software for me". He continues "Quite frankly, Impostrip Solo probably does more than we will ever need it to do, but that's considerably better than not doing enough…. It has been able to handle every file I've thrown at it, regardless of the creating application. Mark Scott, Vice President Marketing, Ultimate Technographics, "INposition used to fill a void for inexperienced prepress operators as an economic alternative to a dedicated imposition workflow solution - the world has changed - our dedicated products are less expensive and easier to operate. INposition 6 for QuarkXPress 6 is a hefty investment for an extension. When you combine the cost of purchasing QuarkXPress 6.0, at US $1,100 plus the cost of purchasing INposition for US $3,000 you've invested a serious amount of money in a system that restricts you to working with one application, and requires an operator to manage each laborious step of manually imposing files. Impostrip Solo and IMPress feature-for-feature outpace INposition, and provide a multitude of significant automated workflow advantages to prepress shops that enable them to work faster, more accurately and provide the liberty of supporting all the leading design and publishing applications on the market". He continues "The design and publishing world experimented with multi-purposes applications in the 1990's, for example, combining layout, illustration, word processing and photo editing in one application and the winners were, and still are, dedicated applications for specific tasks. Impostrip Solo and IMPress impose files faster, cost less than purchasing QuarkXPress and INposition and break the chains of being limited to QuarkXPress, we invite all INPosition users to try our free 5-day demo and see for themselves".
