Podcast - Five Stages of Automation

Topics: Automation

Podcast: Automation in stages

In this Podcast from the Printerverse, Deborah Corn, Intergalactic Ambassador to the Printerverse talks about the stages of automation with Andrew Bailes-Collins, Senior Product Manager and Toon Van Rossum, Product Manager.

File on-boarding

Deborah talks to the Enfocus Team about the difficulties that printers have with getting files into their shops. What exactly is so perplexing about onboarding jobs before submitting them to print production?

  • Customer expectations are not always clear
  • Files enter the company in a variety of ways
  • With varying quality levels
  • Time wasted communicating back and forth between the prepress department and customers

  • Look for quick, little wins and develop it out from there
  • Map out production and start by automating the bottlenecks
