PrintFactory workflow software has unveiled enhanced Dashboard and Reporting features. Users can now view the full production environment including all connected printers and cutters across sites plus job information such as RIPs, nests, and process in a consolidated view via Dashboard. Dashboard includes pending jobs by delivery deadline, Health Check technology with media card insight to solve for potential issues and bottlenecks, and ink, substrate, and costs estimates.
Reporting offers data-rich info from completed jobs that can be viewed in-app or exported to Excel or BI, MIS, or ERP systems. Data includes ink and media usage, costs, waste, and efficiency; cutting length and complexity; and tool/machine costs, speed, and efficiency. A 20 percent saving on ink is only worth having if the colour quality is excellent, as PrintFactory’s VISU colour engine creates device-link profiles that deliver better colour, consistently, and using much less ink.
