Toronto-based Crawford Technologies, a provider of print-stream conversions, document re-engineering, archiving software solutions and more, plans to highlight its Pro Conductor, Pro Inkjet Express and QA in the Cloud solutions at Print 18.
Pro Conductor, Crawford explains, is designed to make it easy to plan, implement, manage and monitor automated production workflows. With a selection of modules to support different environments that can be integrated with other systems and processes, Pro Conductor aims to orchestrate every step of an end-to-end workflow. The web-based dashboard allows internal operations and customers to view real-time job status and SLAs for increased accuracy and efficiency. Additionally, customizable reports provide views into a range of KPIs.
Meanwhile, Pro Inkjet Express is designed to help print and mailing service providers implement automated workflows for inkjet presses. The solution supports migrating processes without the need to recompose print streams or go back to original applications, describes the company. It leverages the capabilities of production inkjet presses with support for changing output formats, adding/removing barcodes, combining small jobs or segmenting large jobs. Designed to help maximize equipment capabilities and add in-line colour, the solution runs on all standard platforms, including mainframe, and supports all input and output formats, says Crawford.
Crawford’s QA in the Cloud (pictured below), based on the same system used for over 20 years by Crawford Technologies for its own software regression testing, automates document testing within a print service provider’s environment. With QA in the Cloud, Crawford says an unlimited amount of test cases can be set up and continuous regression testing can be managed with on-premises or secure cloud licensing options, ensuring that every document produced is accurate.
