Online proofing for print service providers
Online proofing simplifies review and approval processes for faster print production
Today’s competitive market demands more from print services providers (PSPs). Smart firms are moving “upstream” to provide value-added services like design work. These projects have to be delivered at the same levels of efficiency as print services. Clients will accept nothing less as they constantly push their PSPs to improve the service level. Yet one thing has not changed: the ever-shorter deadlines.
|The design piece of print workflow often runs late and impacts production deadlines. Further complicating the review process, high-res proofs are difficult to email, and paper-based proofing is expensive and time-consuming. Complex jobs can require multiple revisions of one proof. When review and approval processes delay production, the PSP loses money and customer satisfaction suffers.
||ProofHQ gives PSPs a common proofing platform for all their projects. It also makes easier for their customers to review and approve designs. PSPs gain more control over production workflow and deadlines. Fewer added proofing steps means faster turnaround and more profitable processes.
