Without doubt, COVID has had a profound impact on the world. In a relatively brief period of time, it has completely changed our perception of personal space, safety, travel, business conduct, and more, which resulted in greater loss of business operations than any previous global calamity in many opinions.
With yet another variant called “Omicron” emerging, international attention continues to prioritize safeguards against further loss of life and impact to the global economies and business stability.
But what can we do at a company level to effectively immunize business operations and address the “what if” to ensure survivability and resilience?
COVID uniquely targets the most valuable link in any operation – manpower. Whether through lockdowns, enforced restrictions on working hours or through critical staff falling ill through the virus, the human element has become one of the weak links for many print operations.
So, the question is how can an operation effectively build an “immune system” that counters and addresses any potential impact of staff shortages through a repetitive surge in the virus and related countermeasures imposed?
The answer lies in automation. Automation provides stability and redundancy and especially where support services to manage automation can be provided via remote services, the inherent risk of a fully manual operation is minimized.
Ultimate TechnoGraphics, a 30+ year veteran supplier of automation software provides that immunity through a range of imposition, ganging and nesting software that fit almost every conceivable size and type of print operation. Its PRO level version initiates print operations to an automated imposition workflow for the price of a coffee per day including maintenance and new versions. It is an extremely cost-effective approach to minimizing risk and the impact of an ongoing war with the virus, effectively providing a corporate immune system for pre-press and finishing operations.
Take that further, our solutions extend to automating finishing lines through provision of barcodes, special marks, JDF, XML and DXF as examples, further reducing risk and facilitating a company’s building of resilience against further restrictive measures that impact business operations.
