Switch to a better automation of your workflow!

26 Jul 2021

Optimising your Switch workflow with your MIS/ERP data? MultiPress has an app for that! With the new MultiPress Connect app, you will be able to link all information stored on MultiPress directly to the Switch platform from Enfocus. This automation will save you a lot of time, will prevent errors and will make your order flow extremely efficient.

A logical step in the MultiPress story

Enfocus' modular Switch platform offers versatile automation possibilities for the prepress and print production workflow.

The platform:

  • Allows users to compose their workflows to partially or fully automate their production processes
  • Creates links between software applications, but is also open for connections with external partners
  • Has an app store with ready-made apps from external parties. With these apps, you can quickly and easily add extra functionality to your Switch workflows.

It is no surprise that the Switch platform is rapidly gaining in popularity and is used in every branch of the print media industry. To provide MultiPress users with the most powerful workflow possible, we've therefore linked the two systems together.

MultiPress Connect app: a range of options

The MultiPress Connect app gives you the best of both worlds: the powerful automation possibilities of Switch combined with the comprehensive and up-to-date information in MultiPress. The MultiPress Connect app allows you to share all necessary CRM/ERP data with Switch, such as new or changed contact details, calculation and quotation information, or an updated order status. The receipt of files or, for example, approval of a digital test version is also passed on immediately.

Based on these notifications from MultiPress, Switch processes the current information and subsequently takes the necessary action fully automatically. In turn, Switch feeds back data via the MultiPress Connect app, so that MultiPress automatically takes action. This feedback of data from Switch to MultiPress takes place automatically and without errors, which saves you a lot of time and money.

This is the only way to take the automation of your order flow to the next level: it creates a fully integrated solution, without the necessary intervention of order managers or prepress operators. Discover the MultiPress Connect app on the Enfocus Switch app store here.

How does the MultiPress Connect app improve your workflow?

A simple example shows how such a connected prepress workflow works in practice. As soon as a customer approves a quotation and submits his files online, a preflight profile is selected based on the order information. After automatic preflight, the order status is updated and the customer receives confirmation that his digital proof is available. After approval by the client, MultiPress informs the Switch platform, after which the files are immediately processed further towards production.

You can also automate all kinds of optional steps in the workflow. For example, an order for which the files have been received can be directly included in the planning to guarantee timely production. The required materials and paper stock are immediately reserved and, based on JDF, the files can be sent directly to imposition. The big advantage: nowhere in this process is it necessary to manually enter or update information.
