Graphisoft Presents New JDF-based Solutions

Press release from the issuing company

Orléans (France), 6 April, 2004 -- Exhibiting at Drupa for the 4th time, Graphisoft demonstrates once again its technology leadership by presenting new solutions which seamlessly manage all information from your printing equipment thanks to JDF to your customer relationships with Graph’email. JDF Integration Graphisoft MIS, Integrale, speaks “JDF” with production systems: all the knowledge regarding the production method of a job, contained in the job ticket of Integrale, can be automatically transmitted to the equipment. In return, Integrale collects the data concerning operations effectively performed. Keying-in is therefore no longer necessary avoiding the mistakes and the waste of time it represented. The information is totally reliable allowing better profitability analysis. A full CIP4 member (www.cip4.org), Graphisoft has also joined NGP (www.ngppartners.org): a partnership which allows us to accelerate the implementation of integrations based on JDF. Today we offer two operational JDF connexions: the link with prepress and the link with the printing machines. Testing is completed or in progress with all the market leaders. For prepress: Creo, Agfa, Esko Graphics..., for printing: Man Roland, Komori, Heidelberg, Ryobi, KBA, Mitsubishi... Connection with finishing machines is on its way. A detailed status of testing with the different vendors is available on www.graphisoft.biz. Concrete demonstrations will take place at Drupa: of a JDF connection with Creo Prinergy workflow for instance. We invite you to come and discover these innovations at our Stand C22, Hall 9. Graph’email: the Unified Contact Management System As friendly to use as a simple messaging system, Graph’email is a powerful tool which allows you to collect and organise all the information exchanged in your company whatever the channel (email, fax, phone) and whoever the contact (customer, supplier, employee…) in a single system. Graph’email is fully integrated into the Graphisoft MIS. Sending a PDF proof, receiving a validation from the customer, asking for prices from sub-contractors, modifying a delivery address… all this information is collected, shared and capitalized by Graph’email ensuring optimal operations within in your company and giving complete customer satisfaction.
