Agfa Graphics to Highlight Workflow Software at SGIA 2015

Latest automation features of Asanti and StoreFront to be demonstrated at Agfa Graphics booth

Elmwood Park, NJ – Agfa Graphics will be demonstrating the latest features of Asanti, the PDF-based workflow software designed for sign and display producers, and StoreFront, Agfa Graphics’ web-to-print solution, at the SGIA Expo 2015. Being held at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta from November 4–6, the Agfa Graphics booth (#3127) will feature interactive demos in conjunction with many wide format printing systems and applications from the company’s portfolio.

Asanti, a PDF-based workflow, helps sign-makers and display producers save time and lower costs across all areas of prepress and production. Asanti brings file handling, color management, RIPping and preflighting together in one convenient package. Asanti 2.0 features hands-free layout automation through layout templates and hot tickets. It also features:

  • enhanced operator GUI for nesting and repeats
  • new color tools for custom spot libraries
  • spectral color readings
  • transparent media and optical brightening agents
  • faster rendering performance
  • new preflight and correction capabilities
  • the latest Adobe® PDF Print Engine 3

The latest release of StoreFront, v3.0.6, features new design options (subcategories, custom footers, interactive HTML5 carousel banners, enhanced product search and suggestions) for increasing customer engagement, production enhancements (more flexible administrator and operator roles, support for Adobe CC 2015) for easier administration and business logic updates (new payment methods, pricing and tax options) for optimal cost coverage and profitability.

“Printers are doing amazing work using expensive, sophisticated hardware but in terms of automation and integrating color management, most software in the wide-format market is lagging behind commercial prepress,” said Mark Gallucci, Manager, Technology Marketing, Commercial Software, Agfa Graphics, North America. “Asanti and Storefront provide PSPs with advanced solutions that improve efficiency and make them a complete one-stop communications provider to their customers.”

As a cloud-based product, StoreFront offers a faster and more affordable way for PSPs to enter the web-to-print market. StoreFront enables customizable and variable data products, on demand products and both printed and non-printed stock products. Incoming orders are automatically processed.

Several Agfa Graphics wide-format printing solutions driven by Asanti will be shown in booth #3127 at the 2015 SGIA Expo, which is being held at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta from November 4–6.
