Combined Solutions Deliver Unique End-to-End Workflow Automation for the Wide Format and Grand Format Industry
Aleyant, an innovative leader in providing robust software services to the graphic communications industry at value-driven prices, today announced full integration with ONYX software for Aleyant tFLOW with ONYX Thrive. The latest version of ONYX software is ONYX 12.2 which is available across all ONYX software solutions. The combination of these two award-winning workflow solutions creates a unique end-to-end PDF workflow for the sign and display graphics and textile industries. This integration will be available via tFLOW’s tBOT module in version tFLOW 7.1 and beyond.
Aleyant tFLOW is a powerful digital workflow automation and customer service solution for commercial, large format, label, and specialty graphics that is integrated into the Aleyant ecosystem. tFLOW simplifies and automates difficult file management tasks and processes to increase efficiency and production throughput. tFLOW can auto-receive files via your Aleyant Pressero™ storefront, or third-party Web-to-Print solution. Imagine having jobs automatically checked and fixed as they arrive instead of letting them pile up in your inbox. Automatically send proof files to your clients for approval. Auto-send print-ready production files to specific departments, or 3rd party imposition, RIPs, or cutters. Use tFlow's built-in collaboration, chat, and review feature with customers and your team to eliminate email chains, text messages and calls.
ONYX Thrive™ software is a full featured, scalable PDF workflow solution based on the Adobe® PDF Print Engine and optimized for superior performance for all sizes of print providers. ONYX software combines the proven Onyx Graphics technology platform with innovative tools and enhancements that simplify color printing workflow, improves output predictability, and increases shop profitability.
The ONYX Thrive Production Manager browser-based user interface enables workflow control from anywhere, optimizing both operator and output device productivity. ONYX Thrive manages wide format and grand format print production workflow. With the integration of the two solutions, wide format operations now have a true end-to-end workflow that allows collaboration from project inception through production, and automating key workflow stages to eliminate unnecessary touches, reducing errors and speeding throughput.
“We are excited to be working with Onyx Graphics to bring this unique integration to the market,” said Darrian Young, Vice President for Production Workflow at Aleyant. “It expands the ability of wide format operations to reduce costs and speed time to market by integrating the file preparation and submission process with the ONYX production workflow solution. We believe this integration is unique in the marketplace and is a logical partnership for Aleyant with its dedication to broadening the range of affordable solutions made possible by our open architecture.”
“Integrating tFLOW with ONYX Thrive rounds out the production workflow by increasing the ability to involve more stakeholders in a real-time online process that ensures everyone is on the same page at all times,” commented Bryan Manwaring, Director of Product Marketing at Onyx Graphics Inc. “ONYX Thrive runs on flexible network licensing technology and offers the unique ability to add RIP power independent of adding devices, ensuring printers and cutters are fed at maximum capacity. It also includes enhanced cut workflow with multiple cutting path prefixes and cutter device settings, improving automation with print and cut workflows.”
