Océ Extends Workflow Automation Leadership to Graphic Arts Market
DÜSSELDORF, GERMANY—June 4, 2008—Océ, an international leader in digital document management and delivery, announces Océ PRISMA® software suite is being targeted to the demands of emerging hybrid digital and offset production workflows at drupa. As offset and digital printing converge in commercial print operations, Océ PRISMA software can support both printing methods and benefit graphic arts customers who are building a digital print operation to complement their classic offset business.
In Stand A44, Hall 6 at drupa, Océ showcases the versatility of Océ PRISMA software for the graphics arts market. From a “software island” of 12 workstations, Océ is demonstrating every process step in modern print production workflow: document creation, scan and make-ready using Océ Document Designer and Océ DocSetter® software; and web-to-print and soft-proofing solutions using Océ PRISMAweb and Océ TrueProof®. Central output management solutions can be customized to fit the challenges of any environment. Midsize print shops can be powered by Océ PRISMAaccess and PRISMAprepare software, while medium- and high-volume production printing is aided by Océ PRISMAspool and Océ PRISMAproduction software. With all of the workstations networked, visitors can observe the entire workflow from the point the order is submitted through to production.
“With 30 years of experience and nearly 4,000 installed systems, Océ is one of the top global providers of software solutions for efficient, fully automated workflows. Now at drupa, we put our extensive expertise at the service of commercial printers who are poised to deploy offset and digital printing as complementary tools. As a result, they can productively and profitably grow their business in more directions,” said Peter Wolff, Océ Vice President, Graphic Arts.
Greater Operational Efficiency and Flexibility
Maximizing efficiency and minimizing costs require that a traditional offset-print operation running concurrently with digital print infrastructure be managed by one efficient, comprehensive workflow. Océ PRISMA software helps graphic arts customers use all their printing devices with maximum efficiency.
