Simply and clearly labeled
Automating label production starts with connecting data to artwork. Then processing, imposing, and producing jobs can happen automatically.
Get files onboard. Get them preflighted. Get them ganged. Your MIS with Switch creates smart jobs with no automation limits.
Switch keeps your MIS and web storefront up to date with job status changes.
Square peg into a round hole? Getting files to comply with production standards is the hard part that makes workflow easier. Preflight is a huge factor. PitStop Pro and PitStop Server are essential prepress PDF tools for editing and quality control.
PitStop comes installed with a set of Action Lists that check for bleed on a dieline, add bleed along a dieline and clip bleed along a dieline. No more manually editing paths to get correct bleed.
The Switch PDF Review Module automates PDF proofing by emailing links to browser-viewed, press-ready jobs. Customers can approve proofs and jobs move into production without bogging down prepress.
Automating smart job processes is much easier since each Switch job can carry its own job ticket throughout the print shop. Routing and ganging jobs happens automatically, according to your parameters.
- Seamless connectivity between imposition and production.
- Keep your jobs moving in a consistent, reliable and efficient way.
- Use your existing imposition solution.
Switch has existing integrations with Tilia Labs, InSoft Automation, and Ultimate Technographics. With the Switch Scripting Module, integrating your existing imposition solution takes manual intervention away from such a keystone process.
Routing JDF instructions created by MIS or an imposition solution to finishing equipment is handled by Switch.
