November 1st, 2023|

InSoft Automation, leader in Layout Planning and workflow automation has set new direction beyond dynamic Imposition, Nesting and Ganging Software with its Print Estimation solution built on top of its powerful layout planning software.

The Atlanta show was different for InSoft. Trade shows are generally about generating leads and counting footfalls. For InSoft the show was beyond this. Discussing the specific prospects requirement, chosing the functionality, creating config for prospects to finalize estimation, nesting and imposition modules.

Estimation is not just generating quick and accurate quotes consistently. It is about generating order winning quotes powered by cost-efficient layout planning engine in the background

The uniqueness of the solution lies in generation of technically accurate, cost-efficient print ready layout in the background at the estimation stage. This eliminates dependability of sales and CRM team on prepress and CAD department. The prepress production comes into picture only when a confirmed purchase order is received.

InSoft Automation integrates with Enfocus Switch

July 21st, 2021|

InSoft announces the launch of Imp XML Bundle, a new app for the Enfocus Switch automation platform. The app is available in the Enfocus Appstore and integrates our handsfree imposition and layout software Imp Flow with Switch. The Imp XML Bundle includes two apps, Imp XML Creator app and Imp XML Merger app, acting as a bridge between Switch and Imp Flow.

Enfocus Switch

Switch is a print workflow automation platform, developed and marketed by Enfocus, the leader in PDF quality control, advanced PDF editing and workflow automation for the graphic arts industry. Switch is a highly flexible and well-thought-out software that can control the flow of data, provide checks and handle PDF and other file types with ease. It is empowering the print industry to move towards Industry 4.0. It is an open platform that allows users to build an interconnected and fully automated workflow using their favourite applications.

Integration with Switch

The Imp XML Creator app automates ganging, imposition for offset, digital and large format printing without any human touch points. Imp compatible XML files with job definitions are automatically created when PDF, JDF, XML, CSV, XMP and TXT files are dropped in an input folder. The Imp XML Merger app combines multiple Imp XML files into a single XML file. This app is especially useful for ganged jobs.

“Customers are continuously looking for ways to save costs and produce products in the fastest and most economical way” says Angelo Manno, Global OEM & Strategic Accounts Manager, Enfocus. “We’re extremely happy that InSoft Automation joined our App Creation Partner Program. By making the Imp XML bundle available for Switch, InSoft provides an answer to the need for hands off production, automatically combining jobs for efficient processing and use of material and eliminating the need for customized integrations. Standardizing on integration efforts makes the workflow also reliable and predictable and eases any required support efforts.”

Key take-away of the event

Both speakers, Harsha & Vijay emphasised on the merit of keeping estimation & negotiation cycles outside of MIS/ERP, a new concept. Pragati has SAP and Express Pack Print has Dynamics AX, yet they use InSoft’s solution for the purpose of dealing with any new job enquiry and preparing quotations. With inbuilt automation and layout optimization abilities of the software, the sales team feels empowered and can generate quotes (even for complex jobs) in few minutes. Further, Planners and CAD operators’ task to generate layouts for estimators is eliminated. Only when an order is confirmed and a purchase order raised, Estimation & Layout data is transferred from InSoft’s Imp software to their ERP/MIS through XML.
