Easy file sharing
To be a print service provider is to exchange large quantities of data with a multitude of people. PrintSphere addresses the need for a standardized, easy and organized way to do this. This unique, cloud-based service helps you, your customers, and your colleagues to send and receive data in a fast and secure way.
Workflow solutions typically import and export data using ‘hot folders’ – folders on a local drive or network in which the tool continuously searches for incoming files or writes outgoing data. Simply synchronize your hot folders with PrintSphere using the OS X or Windows desktop client and all incoming and outgoing data becomes web-enabled.
Online data storage
PrintSphere can be used to make an archive of finished PDF job data available to customers. It also allows you to share a library of design templates and images or a collection of production files. Users can access these using a browser as well as dedicated apps for iOS and Android.
You can password protect shared folders and have full control over what is shared with whom. In a world that increasingly focusses on cross-channel publishing, PrintSphere offers you an efficient platform to make data accessible to customers and other business partners.
Integrable with existing software
Easily integrable with Agfa’s existing workflow tools such as Asanti and StoreFront, PrintSphere is a valuable addition to the entire workflow.
Automated messaging system
In case of integration with our workflow solutions, PrintSphere administrators can organize their data by creating folders and assigning jobs to specific PrintSphere users or print buyers. Appointed users automatically receive an email inviting them to contribute to that particular job.
Secure, off-site database backups
PrintSphere is a cloud service that not only enables the swift exchange of data; it also creates regular backups of the production database, and creates a copy of your customer input files in the cloud. Using the same private and secure cloud technology as Agfa’s healthcare division, all stored data is 100% confidential and safe from data center crises.
No need to invest in other hard- or software when you own PrintSphere. Access PrintSphere anywhere you go via the website and client apps for Windows, Mac, and mobile. PrintSphere uses automatic synchronization to always keep your local folders up-to-date.
