"Before Switch the prepress team devoted 8-12 hours, on a weekly basis, to configuring the publications for print. Now it only takes a matter of minutes."
"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.”
"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."
“I select my CMYK-Connector for the layout of the Lotje & Co magazine. Therefore, I do not have to enter the profiles each time. All settings (for example, transparency flattening) are automatically captured. I can rely on technology knowing nothing will get lost and in the end profiles are perfectly fine.”
"We love our automated solutions, but we also need to provide personal service to our customers. PitStop Pro is the perfect solution to achieve that. We take a quick look at the automated preflight report and in addition, we offer to correct typos and other non-technical mistakes in the job."
The HP Indigo EPM Preflight Solution from Enfocus allows us to define very specific parameters for our devices. It’s given us a confident automated workflow to save us more money with technology that we already had in place.
"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."
The 3Motion team turned to Enfocus in 2016 to help transform and automate its internal processes.
We take a look around 3Motion's facilities, to see how automation through Switch and Pitstop are helping to speed up the order processing time and provide new levels of efficiency for the team.
