Automation Hub to showcase workflow efficiencies for sign & display graphics businesses
August 30, 2016. Wheaton IL. Aleyant, an innovative leader in providing robust software services to the graphic communications industry at value-driven prices, today reported that it is teaming with Tucanna and Ultimate TechnoGraphics to bring a powerful end-to-end automated workflow to the sign and display graphics industry. Consisting of Tucanna’s tFlow®; Ultimate Technographics’ Impostrip®; and Aleyant’s Pressero™, eDocBuilder™ and PrintJobManager™, this automated approach saves time, reduces costs and improves overall productivity. The SGIA Expo will be held in Las Vegas September 14-16. Aleyant, Tucanna and UltimateTechnoGraphics will be located in Booth #2577 at the show.
“We are pleased to be partnering with these two innovative companies to bring a workflow sea change to the sign and display graphics business,” said Greg Salzman, Aleyant’s President. “This combination has worked well for commercial and packaging printers, and now is optimized for a sign and display graphics workflow where there is a growing need for automation. We believe visitors to our booth will be delighted with both the performance and the price point for an automation workflow solution that will deliver a fast ROI and continue to bring positive results to the bottom line for years to come.”
Aleyant Pressero™ is an affordable and easy-to-use cloud-based B2B or B2C online storefront solution that can quickly and easily be customized to individual client needs. This includes ‘mobile-first’ design for branded sites to ensure proper display regardless of the viewing device being used.
Aleyant and Tucanna have collaborated to integrate Tucanna’s tFLOW workflow automation system with Pressero. Graphic Design, Inc., is one company that has already taken advantage of this integration, enjoying an 80% reduction in labor costs for some applications and an overall increase in profitability of 25%. “We are very pleased with the results we have achieved with Tucanna tFlow,” says Mike Erdman, Director of Sales & Marketing. “It integrates seamlessly with Pressero and our MIS. This integration enables the client to not only enter the order online through Pressero and submit the PDF but also to have the file preflighted by tFLOW before we even touch it.”
Adding ImpostripⓇ Automation from Ultimate TechnoGraphics to the mix enables an additional layer of automation, automatically imposing and nesting even the most complex configurations for the ultimate in streamlined workflow.
Pressero can also be enhanced with the addition of Aleyant eDocBuilder, a web-based variable data publishing system built specifically to easily integrate into Aleyant or third-party web-to-print or MIS solutions, featuring advanced typography and image control, imposition, scripting support, PDF workflows, rapid template creation, Excel merge capabilities and more. Aleyant’s Automated Workflow Integrator™ (AWI) uses a rules-based approach to automate connections to Tucanna’s tFLOW® and Ultimate Technographics’ Impostrip®. Aleyant PrintJobManager™ is a Zapier-compatible cloud-based print job management solution that includes a fast means of generating market-driven pricing, job management, inventory control, planning and estimating across a variety of production technologies and applications.
