Through the extended statistics section in the new version, explains the company, detailed reports can now be inspected and created. In the new statistics users can not only recognize exactly how many jobs were processed by Workspace per day, week or month, but also how many jobs were handled by the individual assembly lines and modules, such as Preflight or Flatten Transparencies. In doing so production peaks and possible bottlenecks can be identified at an early stage and countermeasures taken. Workspace now automatically monitors free storage space for production-relevant directories, giving early active warnings to prevent production downtime.

In addition to Microsoft Office connectors, the new version adds Adobe connectors to Workspace Pro X that now also processes InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator files. Thanks to the new “Database Connections”, Workspace can not only accept orders from third-party systems, but can also report back to them. One of the highlights of the new Amendo version 18.1 is the reduction of artifacts in JPG files. Artifacts created when saving images with high JPG compression are reduced; the image quality is considerably improved. In addition, the scaling module has been extended by several options.
