Graphic Developments Inc. has subscribed to ProImage’s NewsWayX Cloud workflow. Instead of hosting the software locally, company executives decided to use ProImage’s redundant Cloud system to manage production.
The hosted solution provides GDI with a custom workflow in the Cloud. Users have logins — just as if the servers were local — to softproof, approve and track pages and plates.
Plate-ready Tiffs are automatically sent from the Cloud to the local proofer and also are load balanced to two ECRM CTP devices for output. ProImage maintains the servers, RIPs and software so versions are always current, eliminating costly upgrades and the need for a separate support contract.
GDI also is using OnColor ECO Ink Optimization SaaS, which is leading to savings of about 30% by reducing the amount of color ink and replacing it with lower-cost black ink.
