Web2Print, MIS, Workflow Connectivity
Ultimate TechnoGraphics’ imposition technology can serve various integration purposes depending on the customer’s goals and objectives. Ultimate TechnoGraphics’ imposition engine is designed to integrate easily to MIS, web2print systems, photo labs, storefronts and other document management systems dedicated to a final printing and finishing delivery process.
The imposition of pages, photos albums and other types of documents is an integral part of the print manufacturing process and consequently is essential to print workflow optimization. The objective is to propose the most efficient way to impose pages to insure constant growth of your business.
To allow integration with virtually any third-party application, Ultimate TechnoGraphics goes the extra mile and has developed a communication language with the use of XML. This model allows those applications to send commands with proper parameters for the imposition process to take place.
The first step is to insure that the application creating the XML job ticket has access to imposition queues configuration and hot folders of Impostrip. We call this "Imposition re-direction".
The second way to integrate implies providing with more information about the imposition. Among other things, the XML application will need to know a "template" to use for Imposition. This implementation does not require using many hot folders or imposition queues. We call this "Imposition Params".
