Why Phoenix?

AI-driven planning and imposition capabilities vastly outpace the limitations of manual planning.

Dynamic Cost Calculations

Generate accurate cost estimates based on device-specific or custom information.


Automated Production Scheduling

Streamline production schedules and optimize material usage for maximum efficiency.

Enhanced Workflow Control

Leverage Phoenix libraries and presets for workflow integration with Enfocus Switch.




Let AI do the work

Instant setup, infinite possibilities

Phoenix really is smarter than your average software. Think of Phoenix as the ultra-efficient and highly-motivated digital twin of your production floor guru.

How does it work?

  • Teach Phoenix: input all your relevant company and production information, including costs of substrates, ink, machine usage, etc. 
  • Unleash Phoenix: Kick back – or fall over in amazement – as Phoenix calculates the most cost-effective way to produce jobs in seconds. For multiple jobs, Phoenix will also handle the most cost-efficient ganging and imposition for good measure. 






Ready to React

Informed job pricing

Phoenix makes it easy to respond to customer job queries with fast, accurate quotes derived from detailed job-cost reports. 

  • Instant, Accurate Job Quotes: Reply to customers with fast, precise quotes based on device-specific material costs, printing options, delivery times, and more.

  • Data-Driven Insights: Empower your CSRs and (pre-)press teams with actionable data, ensuring pinpoint accuracy in your estimates.

  • Automate with Switch: Boost your pricing workflow with Switch’s mind-blowing ability to link up people, data, and systems. 





Phoenix's imposition AI differs from the norm of imposition solutions. Instead of being template-dependent, it works in line with machine and production necessities, creating print-ready, cost-effective layouts instantaneously for any device.





Impose à la mode

Easily work from powerful plan and imposition paths

Gain full control over all product properties, plan settings, and export actions to blast through even the most complex of planning jobs. 

  • Data-Driven Automation: Use CSV data sources to automatically drive job options, simplifying your workflow.

  • Template-Free Imposition: Eliminate the need for manual template creation and management.

  • Prepress Quality Checks: Ensure files are print-ready with automatic verification through Switch & PitStop integration. 






Format freedom

Export for every press specification

Phoenix can export over 13 file formats, including imposed artwork, die cuts, and detailed job time and cost reports. 

  • Device Compatibility: Drive any press and finishing device with intelligent output generation.

  • Production Ready: Export imposed PDF and JDF file formats.

  • Comprehensive Cutting: Export die cutting data as CFF2, DXF, PDF, and ZCC.

  • Flexible Reporting: Get detailed reports in PDF, XML, and JSON formats. 





Phoenix factors in parameters such as job specifications, print devices, finishing requirements, and delivery considerations – all of which can be managed and automated with Enfocus Switch – to search across potentially millions of possibilities for the optimal layout.




From books to boxes

Any output, for any context

Whether you’re a “broad church” printer or a shop specialized in one domain, Phoenix is a perfect fit for your diverse printing needs. 

  • Versatile Application: Commercial and Wide-Format Printing
  • Custom Packaging Solutions: Packaging of Boxes, Folding Cartons, and Displays 
  • Diverse Media Handling: Books, Postcards, Tags, and Labels 
  • Adaptable to Printing Methods: Digital and Conventional Printing (Cut-sheet and Rolls) 



When a final option has been selected, Phoenix generates print-ready layouts and JDF or die instructions, and reports. Switch doesn’t just set parameters for these jobs; it also picks them up to automate their delivery with ticket information to all devices in the production chain.
