MultiPress innovations in the spotlight
Dataline showcases a range of MultiPress innovations aimed at further automating workflow for sign and large-format printing companies:
Installation App: this handy app supports installers in following up every large format project through to installation with feedback from the centrally-managed project in MultiPress.
Campaign management: Sign companies can receive numerous jobs consisting of many and often different complexities. This tool allows internal staff to add such large jobs and manage them all efficiently through to production easier and faster.
Expedition management: The transport manager can list the delivery lines, organise them by mode and export them so that the courier software can use them for further processing. MultiPress is capable of integrating with the most important shipping platforms such as nshift (formerly Transsmart, Consignor and Unifaun) and SendCloud.
Calculation Wizard: Even the most complex quotations can be calculated quickly with the MultiPress Calculation Wizard. The order calculator selects the raw materials, printing processes and finishing forms based on carefully prepared presets. In the background, the complete calculation and quotation are created.
Prepress and production automation:
MultiPress Connect App for Enfocus Switch: The new MultiPress Connect app for Enfocus' Switch platform allows MultiPress to enter customer and order data at various points in the graphic workflow, and to feed status updates back to MultiPress. With this app all stored information from MultiPress can be automatically linked to a job in Switch.
MultiFlow brings further optimisation and automation within MultiPress. Users can automate manual actions and repetitive tasks with the help of simple flow charts.
Callas Preflight and Check and Repair: Correct and print-ready PDFs are crucial for efficient production. Therefore, the detection of errors in preflight should not be overlooked. Dataline works together with Callas and their PDF toolbox is integrated into MultiPress. An order is then ready for production with just a few clicks.
E-business: more and more sign and large-format printing companies have a webshop. How do you ensure that your webshop is not a timesink? An integration with MultiPress will guarantee no time is wasted as your webshop will always show up-to-date prices and delivery times and online orders will seamlessly be included in the planning.
Extensive distribution in Europe
Dataline is the market leader in the Benelux and continues to grow in 24 countries in Europe thanks to a network of certified channel partners. At FESPA, a range of channel partners represent Dataline, including Nachschub Tinte (Germany), Integart (Poland), Network Innovation Solutions (Scandinavia), Symbol (Adriatic), (Adriatic), and Cyan (Spain).
Dirk Deroo concludes: "There is a good reason why MultiPress has become the most popular business software for signage and large format. Generic project management software and other island solutions do not meet the specific requirements of this sector. MultiPress offers the powerful and future-oriented solution they need."
