Enfocus, an Esko company, has recently announced the release of the Reporting Module for Switch 2018, the latest version of its automation solution for the professional print market.
According to company spokesperson, “Building on our promise of offering Switch users more production transparency across their workflows, the new module will not only provide more visibility but also offer a fully customizable experience to users. This new tool can be used across the whole organization, providing both management and production teams an in-depth view of their live production. At each stage of the production workflow, job files can be monitored, in detail, via the fully customizable dashboard. At any given moment, the company can quickly locate jobs and pinpoint bottlenecks. Furthermore, the module also stores historical data for future reference.”
“This is important as it enables tracking of key performance indicators (KPIs) to drive continuous efficiency improvements throughout the entire production flow,” Toon Van Rossum, product manager, Enfocus.
“I’ve never seen two identical Switch installations; every customer is different. And, given that Switch is the most open and customizable automation solution on the market, we needed to deliver a dashboard that allows for a high level of customization, so that each user only sees what they want to see,” explains Van Rossum.
“With customizable boards, users set their own KPIs to manage and optimize production. Since the data that is presented is based on the user’s specific environment, it is easier to achieve faster turnaround times and enhanced production efficiency.”
“Overall, this new module provides users with an easy-to-use tool to see exactly what their Switch is doing at all times. It enables production teams to identify problem jobs and peaks in production much more efficiently. It will also help management to fully understand the benefits of automation and what it provides to their organization,” concludes Van Rossum.
