GandiSoft Software Increases Output and Quality
"We've worked together for years, but solidified our relationship at DRUPA," adds Andy Brunner, senior product manager of ErgoSoft AG and project leader for GandiSoft. "The Gandy's respond quickly to market changes and wanted software that was cost effective and easy to use - one application, one trained technician."
"We included optional features found in our most popular products and made them standard components of GandiSoft. For example, the Hot Folder which automates workflow production; the I-Cut/contour cut module; our award winning ColorGPS ICC Profiler; and multiple printer RIP queue are all included in the package," states Peter Supry, director of technical services for ErgoSoft U.S.
Sharply designed workflow
GandiSoft's offers a powerful combination of technology. It is designed to work in concert with the Job Client, RIP server and Print Queue to make job setup and output easier than ever. You can accomplish all these tasks from one single window.
At the heart of GandiSoft is a sophisticated color rendering engine; an open color management system with custom linearization and ink limiting capability, support for various spectrophotometers, and an integrated ICC profiler, color GPS, all of which combine to provide unprecedented control over color accuracy and image fidelity.
Standard options of GandiSoft include: sophisticated controls for shrinkage allowance and stretch compensation; global color replacement; color books that provide for a series of industry standard and custom spot colors; hot folder to automate the ripping and printing process; automated seam extension for creating banner pockets; and an advanced contour cutting option that supports a die-cut workflow.
GandiSoft offers a tremendous span of output capabilities including the ability to increase the library of colors, so the operator can see what it will look like on substrate prior to printing.
The high-end large format digital printer market is a fast paced "niche" industry that requires flexibility and constant improvements in not only hardware, but also software development to remain at the top. At the end of the day, print shop owners want to know: How quickly can you setup a job? How long does it take to achieve the color quality you're looking for? How fast can the files be ripped? How much time is really spent on each job? GandiSoft is designed for maximum throughput to have a positive effect on the print shop's bottom-line.
