Procedes prints around 500 PDF files a day during peak periods. Until 2013, the company used action lists to do this manually, which was time-consuming. To reduce this, the print service provider decided to increase the level of automation in the prepress area. The aim was to check print data more quickly, safeguard processes and avoid manual errors. Impressed implemented a few solutions for this purpose:
- A web-based tool developed in-house maps production jobs on the basis of Microsoft's SQL server. This allows Procedes employees to view the current order status at any time using a traffic light system.
- callas pdfToolbox, as a complete solution for the automated processing of PDF files, checks and corrects the incoming PDF files for the resulting largely automated production.
Procedes also relies on Microsoft Dynamics Nav.
