PRINT providers around the world are using :Delano, Agfa’s web-based project management system, confirming the value the product brings to businesses.
:Delano provides publishers, prepress and printing companies the means to integrate business systems in the production workflow.
While it was once thought that the Internet would signal the end for the printing industry, printers have come to embrace the possibilies the Internet provides and the efficiencies it helps to bring to the graphic enterprise.
“We had been using the :ApogeeX workflow and we’ve been very pleased with that, so we decided to add :Delano to get faster turnaround on our jobs and provide better and faster service to our customers,” said systems manager, The Papers, Milford, IN (USA), Jim Cox. “With :Delano’s StreamProof soft proofing capabilities, well, that was just the icing on the cake.”
“:Delano allows our clients to control their work right up to the point at which the plates are made, offering them file delivery, pre-flight and post-rip proofing solutions,” said prepress manager, Stephens and George Group (UK), Mike Donovan. “The software allows both sides of the printer/publisher partnership to control the largest variable of each project.”
:Delano, which creates an automated and efficient workflow by managing all aspects of the production environment, offers PDF- and JDF-powered tools for managing resources and monitoring production tasks.
:Delano Publish is specifically designed at publishers, trade shops and page-processing centres. It allows these operations to create reliable PDF-ready files quickly and efficiently.
:Delano Production gives high-volume commercial printing and package production environments extended functionality and tools for maximum project management and control.
