Canon Reveals New Platform that Streamlines Print Processes
Canon Solutions America, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc., is introducing new system management software to streamline workflows and improve productivity.
The platform, titled Production Control System (PCS), supports all the functions of a digital press and accounts for the many disruptive changes the evolving book industry faces, further allowing for a streamlined print process.
This rules-based workflow will allow users to completely automate order submission and document preparation, while providing intelligent job management and fulfillment of printed and non-printed items.
Additionally, PCS provides automated workflow processes and tracking to drive profitability by taking control of job management and implementing adaptive and efficient workflows, aligning supply with short-run demand, reducing inventory-associated costs, risks, and distribution costs, and expanding service offerings to build market share, all while acquiring new customers.
PCS is a game changer for book manufacturers and commercial printers said Lisa Weese, senior manager, product marketing, Production Print Solutions, Canon Solutions America.
PCS equips book manufacturers with the right tools to exceed their customers' expectations, Weese explained.
Users of the new technology can expect to expand service offerings, build market share, reduce inventory, and, perhaps most importantly, increase profitability with PCS's adaptive and automated workflow, according to Weese.
