Enfocus Switch

This integration is mainly used for preflighting and PDF approvals and has a powerful ability to make changes within the Tharstern database to protect the integrity of the workflow.

Tharstern Enfocus Switch Integration

What the integration does, in a nutshell

This middleware is an excellent tool to bridge gaps between disparate workflows (e.g. an email workflow and an MIS workflow) and it significantly reduces the need for human intervention. It's primarily used for preflighting and PDF approvals but we’ve also seen it used to enhance works instructions, deliver proof of delivery to the MIS and perform EPM analysis.

The tool can also amend job specs in the Tharstern database to reflect changes made during the preflighting and approval processes.

What the integration delivers

1

Monitors multiple channels for incoming jobs e.g. directories, email server and your FTP

2

Can update milestones and create events within Tharstern

3

Switch can change the job specification within the Tharstern database to ensure that the correct preflight process is selected e.g. page geometry or material

4

Enrolls jobs into automated workflows based on predefined criteria e.g. ‘if the artwork for a 2PP job is 3 times the width of the original 6PP file, then change job to spread’

Why would you want this integration?

To create value out of small-run, low-value jobs by automating administrative tasks. When you initially purchase it, you’ll be automating one task but within a year you’ll be doing 50!
