FlightCheck has been an indispensable part of my production toolkit ever since I used it the first time. FlightCheck’s customizable control panels let me check every job quickly for the ‘deal breakers’ and get them fixed, and collect the jobs very efficiently. I’ve seen what some people call ‘jobs,’ that I’d call ‘train wrecks,’ because they haven’t bothered to check that the job is suitable for production. In my estimation, FlightCheck is a must-have for ANYONE who has to make sure jobs are ready for press or outside vendors.
– Jim Yarrow, print production expert, on FlightCheck preflight application by Markzware
