After receiving a significant amount of interest and positive feedback from customers visiting drupa 2012, Kodak Insite Prepress Portal System 6.5 is now available. Version 6.5 offers a number of new features that help to further decrease costs, reduce cycle times and strengthen client relationships-including an application that allows users to review, approve and annotate jobs from their Apple iPad tablet.
Designed for today's increasingly mobile workers, the Insite Software 6.5 App for iPad tablets is based on Kodak's award-winning Smart Review System. Features include an overview of all jobs on the Insite Software Server, visibility into review and approval status for all stakeholders, and the ability to mark up and annotate on-screen. Once a job is approved in the App, Insite Software can automatically begin processing the files in Kodak Prinergy Workflow. The application is available at no charge to customers who upgrade to version 6.5.
‘The Insite software application for the iPad tablet allows businesses to adapt to and take advantage of today's on-the-run lifestyle. The ability to review and approve print jobs while on the road or at home, 24/7, can increase employee productivity and provide faster turnaround,’ said Jon Bracken, Kodak's general manager of Unified Workflow Solutions. ‘It's all about bringing printers closer to their customers, differentiating your business and increasing revenue opportunities.’
Additional features in Insite Software 6.5 include a new document uploader based on the Adobe Flash platform, as well as enhancements that allow quicker job status review, more efficient preflighting and easier user management.
‘Today's print buyer is not always familiar with the terminology of printing, so Insite software provides visual feedback that is easy to understand and shows what's going on with the file. They'll know immediately whether the file uploaded correctly or if there's an issue, and will know when the job is in production,’ added Bracken.
