Soft proofing: the browser is where the magic happens!

Soft proofing is nothing new. Most print customers are used to proofing jobs by email and find it pretty convenient to boot. Sure, they may have some questions or remarks regarding color accuracy or what might happen to their layers in the RIP. But for the most part – and this is especially true in the case of digital print – customers are comfortable giving printers the green light based on what they see in a PDF soft proof. However, there are some bees in the prepress bonnet when it comes to administering soft proofs via email. Is it time for a browser-based alternative? Yes! And it already exists, fancy that. Read on to discover all about the Enfocus PDF Review Module.

Q&A: How to shore up prepress and print islands with automation software? (Part three)

While we do l-o-v-e helping small businesses automate their way to the top, Enfocus is very much aware that larger companies, too, can sometimes use a hand when it comes to prepress and print automation. Growing faster than they can handle is a common problem that these bigger corporations experience. When their initial growth spurt is over, they find themselves faced with numerous isolated prepress and print stations – and no workflow to tie them all together. In part three of this Q&A series, we answer a great question sent to us by Oliver, CTO of a large print company.

Over the last few years, even the most ambitious printing professionals found themselves facing what felt like a never-ending pursuit of increased efficiency on numerous levels. Automation, it seemed, was not much more than a buzz word or a privilege for the lucky few, i.e. companies with massive budgets. Well, no more!
