To be profitable with print it is important that files are touched as little as possible. The more manual intervention the job receives the less money you make. The ideal digital workflow is automated to detect, repair, or redirect files that are not ready for production.. We will cover methods of automating the entire workflow from start to delivery. We will start with file creation, reception, and job intake using industry standard tools and scripting, and cover all the way through file editing, transfer, and advanced processes. We will cover metadata, xml ticketing, and database interaction as well as job routing and interactivity. At the end of this session you will understand which processes can be easily automated, and which tools are good candidates for use in your workflows.
