Switch into a higher gear!
Dataline Solutions is the only MIS supplier that offers the possibility to automate the entire workflow within its own software. The workflow starts with the module "Workflow basis", via this self-configurable folder structure you keep all digital data with the order. With the "Check and repair" module, you can check and repair the files supplied at various places in the workflow.
The MultiPress combination module, controlled by "Workflower", gives the most adequate layout for placing multiple orders on one print sheet.
With the module "Impose" the already existing division of the order is enriched with the necessary measuring strip and other signs that are necessary for the production.
You can also control the other workflow systems via the "Workflow JDF" module. With this module you can send the ink profiles to the press and / or the cutting schedule to the cutting machine. Finally, you can use the "Workflow JMF" module to read out the data generated by the different machines.
Check & Repair
The MultiPress Check & Repair module automatically checks and repairs the supplied PDF files. MultiPress sends a report with the errors and warnings present in the PDF file. If the errors are irreparable, the report is immediately mailed to the customer. The errors are clearly described with indication of their location in the document. As a result, neither your planning nor the order of your customer is jeopardised. If the document did not contain any errors or if the errors can be repaired automatically, the document is sent directly to the workflow. All supplied PDF files are displayed in the MultiPress Check & Repair module. MultiPress shows the format and colours of the supplied PDF files. Corrected PDF files can be added or inserted afterwards.
One way to reduce the printing costs is to combine jobs. Fed by Workflower's smart technology, the MultiPress combination module always provides the best solution to combine several orders on one printing sheet in no time. The proposed division can be adjusted by means of 'drag & drop'. A (provisional) printing order will be created to schedule the combination. The combined price will then be divided between the different printing items based on the surface area occupied by these items.
You often work with PDFs in your graphic company that you would like to print in the right order. But the step to a workflow is still a bit too big, also because your standard JDF link is not of the same level as in the offset world. No problem! MultiPress knows everything about imposition and easily links PDFs to print jobs. That way, everything runs smoothly in your company.
Cutting calculation module: accurate prices for sub-products
In large format printing, jobs often start from the roll. But for the further finishing, it is often preferable to work with a sub-product, specifically, a roll or a sheet. Arranging the right cutting configuration, in both width and length, is highly labour-intensive and determines the price of the end product.
