Recent Features Added to Aleyant eDocBuilder™; Improved User Interface for the Approve, Save, and Cancel Buttons + Pinch and Zoom Support Added to iPads with Either Safari or Chrome and Android with Chrome for Interactive Designer Templates

We have updated the eDocBuilder web-to-print variable data printing software with some great new capabilities. Whether using eDocBuilder as an integration in your own printshop e-commerce solution, or as part of the Aleyant Pressero™ W2P software, you can immediately start taking advantage of these new capabilities. See below for specific details on these recent updates.

Improved User Interface for the Approve, Save, and Cancel Buttons on Interactive Designer Templates

Aleyant Pressero™ products that are utilizing an interactive designer template and the Save for Later feature, will now display a new button for “Save.” Previously the save option was only available after selecting “approve/checkout” which caused confusion to some Pressero users. Depending on the device you are viewing on, you will either see the new button with text description “Save” or simple disk icon representing the action.

Pinch and Zoom Support Added to iPads with Either Safari or Chrome and Android with Chrome for Interactive Designer Templates

Pinch and Zoom support has been added to iPads with either Safari or Chrome and Android with Chrome for interactive designer templates. This allows the user to zoom in on the template they are customizing using the familiar pinch and zoom functionality found on most mobile devices. Anywhere on the template customization area, the user can pinch the screen to zoom in on a specific area in that section. This will zoom in on the template without changing the zoom on the rest of the screen. This makes customizing interactive designer templates even quicker and easier on mobile devices.

Users who are currently using our Singapore data center will no longer need to make changes to their configuration when installing the latest version of the AWI.  You can simply select your URL and data center on the login screen and/or the settings tab.  Also, users with multiple accounts using the AWI will now be able to select their desired domain on login and/or in the Settings tab.

Web-to-Print Workflow Webinar Presented by Enfocus and Aleyant to Show Powerful Benefits of Marrying Switch and Pressero

Print and Packaging Workflows Both Yield Increased Automation and Productivity

Wheaton, IL —  February 5, 2015  —  Aleyant Systems, an innovative leader in providing web-to-print software services to the graphic communications industry at value-driven prices, today announced it is collaborating with Enfocus, the leading provider of PDF preflight and automation solutions for the printing and publishing industries, in an upcoming webinar. This collaboration is designed to show how increased automation and productivity are brought to print and packaging workflows through the integration of the Aleyant Pressero™ web-to-print solution and Enfocus Switch automation. The presenters will illustrate specific ways to optimize, customize and take control of processes in the webinar scheduled for Wednesday, February 11, 2015, at 2 PM Central Time.

To register for the webinar, visit www.Pressero.com and select the Webinars tab. During the webinar, Pressero and Enfocus experts will explain how Enfocus Switch helps process more jobs faster and with fewer mistakes by fully automating how files are created, sorted, routed and processed. Attendees will learn how Switch integrates and connects third-party applications in the web-to-print management workflow, linking everything together in an efficient and customized production flow.

“Working with Enfocus is the next logical step in our quest for increased automation in the printing and packaging workflow,” said Greg Salzman, President of Aleyant Systems. “Both Enfocus and Aleyant are dedicated to bringing the market affordable, easy-to-use solutions that take touches out of the process, and make companies easier to do business with.”

Salzman explains that with this integration, Switch will read Pressero XML control files from Aleyant’s Automated Workflow Integrator (AWI), making job information available to Switch workflows and broadening the scope of automation available to Pressero users.

Enfocus Switch 
Enfocus Switch makes it easy to create and edit workflows, with powerful tools for companies of all sizes and budgets. Its modular approach makes it simple and affordable to automate workflows using the Switch Core Engine, managing files automatically and tracking progress. Additional modules can be added as needed. These include:

-Configurators that integrate, control and automate popular third-party applications
-Seamless integration of databases with automated communication making it easier and faster to build communication paths between Switch and any MIS or database
-Complete customization of workflow with the Switch Scripting module that takes advantage of custom developed scripts in Visual Basic, Java or AppleScript
-SwitchClient, enabling direct Switch interaction, such as job submissions, via desktop, laptop, or tablet
-Web Services extending Switch to remote users via the cloud

“Switch is an open and flexible workflow solution designed to integrate different departments in a printing business,” says Alex Hamilton, Director of Business Development for Enfocus. “This webinar with Aleyant is a great way to show how Switch ties in with Pressero’s storefront by picking up order details and using them to streamline production of commercial printing jobs. For printers to thrive in the 21st century, automation initiatives like these will be essential.”
