EFI Introduces Suite of Fiery Production Workflow Products
EFI, a world leader in customer-focused printing innovation, today announced the introduction of the Fiery(R) Workflow Suite, a comprehensive set of
integrated products to accelerate business growth and profitability. As part of EFI's broad portfolio of integrated products, Fiery Workflow Suite delivers
a unique, fully integrated workflow from job submission and business management to scheduling, preparation, and production for a new level of productivity.
Fiery Workflow Suite products are designed to integrate seamlessly with EFI's industry-leading Fiery digital front end. The suite includes applications for
job submission, prepress, make-ready, color profiling and management, personalization, and output management.
"Print service providers are increasingly replacing standalone workflow solutions with integrated, customizable solutions," says Kaspar Roos, associate
director for InfoTrends' production workflow and customized communication service. "In our 2012 Digital Front-End Study, we found strong evidence
that print providers want to move their workflow solutions to the DFE so that they can run their workflow from a central location that easily integrates
with other systems. With EFI Fiery Workflow Suite, based on its popular Fiery platform, EFI offers its customers exactly this."
"Fiery Workflow Suite products also integrate with EFI's Web-to-Print and Print MIS systems, giving our customers an advanced set of end-to-end products
to reach greater levels of automation and profit," said Toby Weiss, senior vice president and general manager of EFI's Fiery business unit. "Print
service providers can quickly adapt to changing market demands by adding the modular Fiery Workflow Suite products and dramatically grow their
bottom line by offering personalization, quick turnaround on complex documents, and the ability to keep jobs that demand precise color quality in house."
Fiery Workflow Suite includes three key new applications: Fiery JobFlow, Fiery JobMaster, and Fiery Central, which work together to increase print
production efficiency with integrated and automated workflows, maximize print engine capacity and capability, process more jobs in less time, and
help print service providers offer new higher-profit, value-added services.
Advanced prepress tools automate print workflows to ensure the integrity of jobs before going to print, increasing operator's productivity and shortening turnaround times.
Advanced make-ready software makes complex document preparation tasks simple and fast.
Fiery Central 2.0
