The new software platform enables printing businesses to free up their workforce significantly and engage them in more revenue generating activities
With Print service providers (PSP) aggressively engaged in upgrading as well as adding new services and applications to cater to the next generation demands of customers, Workflow automation has become pivotal for seamless and streamlined business operations.
Furthermore printing businesses are also looking for more scalable solutions to meet the varied demands of customers with limited resources. Citing the prevailing scenario in the printing segment, Konica Minolta, has unveiled AccurioPro software platform, offering end to end production automation and integrating the best features of in house and cloud-based software.
The solution is specifically tailored to be modular (pay only for the components needed), flexible (integrates with other common graphic arts software), scalable (supports small-to-large operations), and comprehensive (features beyond prepress to incorporate colour management and finishing).
Workflow automation also helps businesses in better structuring their operations resulting in enhanced outputs and revenue generation.
Salient Features of AccurioPro
Highly accommodating for print shops of differing size and sophistication, the AccurioPro platform’s modular design is crafted to furnish end-to-end workflow automation. The solution also ensures that PSPs can harness as little or as much of the solution as per existing requirements.
The solution comprises of three key pillars-:
JDF interoperability for seamless compatibility with existing commercial workflows like Agfa Apogee, Kodak Prinergy, and Screen Equios.
AccurioPro Conductor has been tailored for centralised and intelligent output management. Job specs (via JDF) can be leveraged from a print MIS to effectively and efficiently load balance production across a fleet of digital presses without operator intervention. The conductor can also support finishing automation with the possibility for out-of-the-box integration due to a unique JDF converter that eliminates differences between vendors that are often hurdles to integration.
AccurioPro Cloud Eye incorporated in the solution is for remote management and administration of colour quality and standards, and is particularly useful for multi-site quality control. Cloud Eye helps printing businesses in day-to-day colour control, sharing colour data across devices/sites, ICC profile creation, and reporting to ensure devices are within tolerance.
