The FINANCIAL — To strengthen the working relationship between print service providers and their customers and to enhance the user experience, Kodak is launching KODAK INSITE Prepress Portal System 7 built on HTML5. By removing the requirement for the JAVA Platform, a third party plugin, KODAK INSITE Prepress Portal 7 now delivers new features including HTML5 system diagnostics and a redesigned HTML5-based Smart Review user interface.
KODAK INSITE Prepress Portal 7 helps print service providers extend workflow automation capabilities while reducing turnaround time and cost by delivering simple, real-time access and collaboration with customers. It is equipped to securely integrate with KODAK PRINERGY Workflow and to support enhanced control over the prepress process. This enables customers, prepress operators and service representatives to submit jobs, track progress, collaborate on changes and review and approve work—anywhere, anytime, according to KODAK.
KODAK INSITE Prepress Portal 7 gives the customer additional freedom by providing a real-time and user-friendly experience with the new HTML5-based Smart Review. The system automatically track all activities – including job submissions, change requests and approvals or rejections – and alerts customers and prepress staff of issues for quicker correction and page updates. The removal of the JAVA Platform requirement is a significant enhancement, allowing customers to engage with a secure, streamlined platform for managing proofs with reduced technical support. The HTML5 platform delivers a consistent interface across the widest range of platforms and Web browser environments.
“Delivering automation workflow solutions that enable print service providers to build relationships with customers based on quality and trust is our number one priority,” said Allan Brown, General Manager, Unified Workflow Solutions, Eastman Kodak Company. “We understood the challenges our customers faced with existing prepress portals and have delivered a tool that offers a more efficient and accessible experience. The development of KODAK INSITE Prepress Portal 7 provides an enhanced Smart Review experience, while the system’s integration with PRINERGY Workflow gives our customers the most significant competitive advantage available through workflow software today.”
