German workflow software expert OneVision Software enters into technical based collaboration with Cerm, one of the leading solution providers of business management software for narrow web label printers. The primary focus of the two companies is to integrate their software and to enable an automated end-to-end workflow for a smooth, highly efficient label production.
The technical partnership between the two software manufacturers OneVision Software and Cerm provides traditional and digital narrow web label printers with a consistent automation of their label production. Due to the full compatibility and the direct connectivity of the two systems, order management and print data processing operate flawlessly.
Seamless integration between MIS and PDF workflow software make label converters benefit
The integration of the two systems enables label printers to benefit from the core competence of both companies: Cerm software is a MIS (management information system) structuring business processes and organizing administrative workflows of label and commercial printers. With its Label Automation Suite OneVision takes care of a trouble-free print production process. The automation suite acts as middleware between the MIS and the RIP/DFE. Once the order for a label job has been received in Cerm's MIS, OneVision’s Label Automation Suite automatically prepares print data and finishing. Either of the two software systems actuates the printing press.
Even embellishment and finishing are being taken care of
With the automation suite label printers can benefit from an automated workflow and a comprehensive prepress package. In addition, special functions such as nesting, a cut line manager and a barcode generator as well as the creation of white and varnish masks enable automated preparation for finishing and embellishment.
An integrated production planning system enables collective printing of cross-customer jobs and significantly increases the throughput of label printers. The print-ready file then gets printed and, in the next step, sent and invoiced with the Cerm solution.
Joint OneVision and Cerm customers benefit from an automated end-to-end workflow from order receipt through print and finishing preparation to invoicing and delivery. As a result, label printers achieve significant time and cost savings and produce much more efficiently.
