Apogee Cloud automates Prinovis UK’s prepress workflow and allows them to take on additional print jobs
In the spring of 2019, Prinovis, the UK’s last remaining gravure printer, installed a Goss web press to insource the printing of magazine covers, inserts and onserts. With the new press came the need for an offset workflow solution that would allow them to get the most out of it. Prinovis opted for Agfa’s Apogee Cloud, based on the functionalities, yet also the flexibility and intuitiveness of the cloud-based prepress workflow software.
Mark Worthington, pre-press and quality manager, sums up some of the reasons for moving to a cloud-based solution: “From an IT perspective, it provides an obvious cost saving in both the purchasing of new servers and maintenance of them too. It also makes any updates from Agfa seamless. Our IT team were impressed with the level of security Agfa offered and felt confident to go for a cloud solution. We had the obvious discussions about what happens if access to the internet from our end was impaired, but after much consideration it made more sense to make our workflow solution cloud-based.”
