Commercial printing software solutions: plugged into everything

Nexus and Odystar can now take advantage of EskoArtwork tools integrated with their current workflow and proofing systems to considerably increase their productivity. The result is an extremely robust workflow with an exceptional number of options for any commercial printer.
For example, Nexus and Odystar users are now able to implement FastImpose, that can effortlessly handle even the most complicated imposition schemes, including multi-web, (asymmetric) coming-and-going, multiple sections with different trim sizes on the same sheet-and even foldouts (tri-folds and gate-folds). FastImpose additionally offers the use of dynamic and elastic templates, which considerably reduces the amount of required imposition templates to build and to maintain.
