This well-established, robust integration is one of the most advanced integrations to Agfa workflow products on the market. We have taken advantage of Apogee specific technology to create an enhanced interface between Agfa Apogee and Tharstern.
An MIS to prepress workflow integration - it allows you to create jobs, deliver imposition, take advantage of Apogee specific workflow pre-setting and to update the MIS at key stages throughout production.
