An online solution for any print shop, publisher or prepress house, making it easier to preflight and receive customer files
RIJSWIJK, The Netherlands -- April 3, 2002 -- Markzware b.v. announces GoodToGo Europe; a subscription solution based on Markzware's MarkzNet technology. This online preflight, job collection and digital file delivery solution is used by your customers over the Internet and is available free of setup charges for a limited time.
GoodToGo allows a job to be preflighted before it is sent to a printer, publisher or prepress service provider. GoodToGo checks job files for the correct size, color space, resolution, and other mechanical requirements. If the job is correct, it collects the layout file, support files, and fonts into a single compressed archive. This archive is sent to the final destination via FTP with the click of a single button. Forty-two file types are supported, including Quark, PDF, InDesign, PageMaker, Illustrator, Freehand, Photoshop, EPS, TIFF and JPEG. Nearly one hundred built-in preflight rules can be configured in minutes using a simple Web browser interface. GoodToGo can be easily customized with your own job ticket and corporate branding.
The Managed Solution is co-hosted on GoodToGo's high-speed web servers with three different levels of service:
* Supports forty-two native application file readers, including PDF
