Features

24/7 portal

Apogee WebApproval provides your customers with an intuitive easy to use web interface for file upload and softproofing. It is accessible from any supported platform at any time of day. Apogee WebApproval uses mobile responsive HTML5 web technology so that it can also be used on mobile devices, such as Apple iPads or Android based tablets.

Easy file upload

Users can upload PDF files by simply dropping them on a WebApproval job tile in their browser. The easy-to-use web interface warns users about approaching deadlines or unsupported file formats. The goal is to streamline production and minimize errors.

Integrated preflight

Your customers and customer service representatives get warnings about missing fonts, low-resolution images, incorrect page sizes and other potential issues. This reduces the risk of last-minute delays or expensive reprints.

Reliable softproofing

Approvers and managers who need to monitor jobs can view the pages of a job onscreen using a flipbook. They can also download softproofs for offline reviewing or output on their own office printer. This saves time and money by eliminating the cumbersome delivery of hardcopy proofs. The proofs have been rendered using the same Adobe PDF Print Engine RIP that is also used for outputting plates or digital prints. This avoids costly mistakes and ensures consistency throughout the whole prepress process.

Expert features

WebApproval Pro provides expert users with some exclusive options, such as support for versioning and separation viewing. Users can access jobs that will be printed in multiple languages or that include address or pricing imprints. Viewing separations enables them to check black overprints or verify whether the company logo will be printed on the right spot color plate. These features allow you to meet the expectations of demanding customers.

Automated messaging

Users who are expected to upload or approve jobs are automatically notified by e-mail about new jobs. Your own team members can also receive messages about rejected pages or jobs that have been fully approved. The automation eliminates frustration by not having to chase your clients for feedback and approval.

Multi-tenant setup or dedicated target groups

The multi-tenant support is a perfect fit for a lot of printing companies today. When printing for different print brokers or after consolidation, it can be important to maintain brand identity and company name for a specific set of print buyers. This is what multi-tenant is all about: creating a dedicated environment for print buyers to retain customer loyalty.

Integrated in your Apogee Prepress workflow

Apogee WebApproval is an integral part of the Apogee Prepress workflow. Both Apogee components share the same servers, database and Task Processors, so that you do not have to invest in additional hard- and software. Agfa’s global support services completes the solution with expert consultation, installation, team training and technical support.
