Agfa Graphics and i-Sub Digital will jointly introduce the new Agfa Asanti workflow software at Sign and Digital UK 2014 with an in-depth presentation at the show's Business Theatre and ongoing on-stand demonstrations.
Agfa Graphics will present its new Asanti Production workflow – a dedicated solution for the sign and display industry – at the Sign and Digital UK Business Theatre at 1.15pm on Thursday May 1st 2014.
Following the field-leading success of Agfa's Apogee software in the commercial printing sector, Asanti brings a high level of automation to the sign and display production process to match the increasing speed and technology levels of today's print engines.
The new Asanti Production workflow software is complemented by Asanti StoreFront, a hosted cloud-based web-to-print system. Developed as an easy-to-use e-commerce solution requiring minimal up-front investment, Asanti StoreFront can give sign and display businesses the power to increase revenues by creating and managing online stores for print and non-print products such as frames, mounting brackets and stands, and by targeting both the B2B and consumer markets.
Asanti StoreFront offers a simple and familiar storefront for customers, an optional preflight check when uploading files to be printed, and an integrated Online Editor to enable customers to personalise print or regionalise documents easily – for instance changing prices or adding QR codes. Stores can include a design library to accelerate turnaround of recurring orders such as advertising campaigns that can be either printed on demand or delivered from stock.
In addition to the Business Theatre presentation, Agfa Asanti Production and Agfa Asanti StoreFront will be demonstrated as part of a wide-format printing workflow on the stand of Agfa distributor i-Sub Digital (Stand E10).
Andy Spreag, Director of i-Sub Digital, comments: "Both the Asanti workflow and StoreFront options are essential buys for signage and display printers. Businesses can reach out to new markets with the online e-tail solution while keeping up with increased demand thanks to the efficiency gains made possible with the Asanti workflow solution.
"They are genuinely market-leading solutions and Agfa's Business Theatre presentation is set to be both educational and engaging – just what you want for the final day of the show! We're also looking forward to demonstrating them on our biggest ever Sign UK stand."
