File onboarding can be a mess. Unless…

So, you’ve managed to convince yet another customer that you are just the guy or gal to do their printing, and you’ve sealed the sale. Congrats! Now if you want to move on to actually printing the job, the next step is getting the necessary files in your shop, obviously. If only it were that simple, right? As you know, there are many pitfalls involved when it comes to customers sending you their files. Do you want a way out of this mess of email, FTP and W2P/MIS? Look no further (but do read on).

Taking control of the prepress process

“Enfocus Switch has allowed us to create flow processes which automatically guarantee a certain level of consistency and precision whilst being sufficiently flexible to adapt to our company’s new operational needs, as and when they develop. It has enabled us to automate the organisational side of our processes in a secure manner, guaranteeing the level of quality and control. This resulted into a considerable amount of time that got freed up, which in turn translated into an increase in productivity.”

Switch generates PDFs in an easy and secure way

"This really is a simple and easy-to-use solution for all our employees. You do not need any separate or locally installed PDF printer if you want to convert logs or other internal documents into a PDF."

NetzoDruk can process up to ten times the order load per day

"We are processing five to ten times as many orders thanks to the smooth workflow. That secures our profitability nowadays. For example, in the past we needed multiple desktop publishers; at this point we do not have a single one. Our well-trained order attendants are perfectly capable of doing the work flawlessly. 
Thanks to the extra orders coming in, we were able to employ more people in production and within our online branch. As a result, we did not only experience a sturdy growth in turnover, but also in the services we offer.”

Switch automates our workflow, allowing us to get more work done

"Switch pulls everything together. Although we have multiple publishing and consumption methods, there is now a defined, centralized workflow for managing, processing and distributing files, as well as updating and interacting with several databases. We needed a solution that was as 'open source' as possible to allow full XML automation as well as integration of third party applications and configurators. Switch was the ideal solution to meet those requirements."

A single process solution with leaner manufacturing, that’s Switch to us

"We started investigating, testing, and preparing samples and quickly became convinced that Switch was the right tool for what we needed. And it has done a great job for us. It has gotten us beyond our goal of getting 80 % of the manual steps out of our workflow ,  because we have reached a 100 % within the year, without entailing an exorbitant financial investment. And we’re continuing to go further with it."
