Markzware, publisher of FlightCheck® software for preflighting during prepress, pays further tribute to fellow industry member, David Watson, founder of Ultimate. This visionary gentleman always made it a point to visit with Markzware at all the GraphExpo and other print tradeshows. He was formally a typesetter who was able to see the value of preflighting with FlightCheck. He called to invite Markzware to demonstrate products, including how FlightCheck is used for preflighting to check documents for print quality control, at the Hewlett-Packard booth. His legacy endures through the company he founded:
Ultimate Technographics offers solutions for print, imposition, automation, digital printing, offset printing, and newspaper printing. Ultimate produces automated general imposition software for offset printing and digital printing, as well as automated software for printing business cards, digital books, direct mail, web2print and more. Ultimate Technographics also integrates automated imposition with MIS management systems, XML content management systems, and web2print systems. Ultimate has partnered with Avanti to offer connectivity to provide printers with automated MIS to prepress and finishing capability, eliminate imposition bottlenecks and accelerate production:
Avanti’s Print MIS (Management Information System) integrates with Ultimate’s Impostrip® imposition technology enabling printers to optimize their production workflow from production planning to the prepress and finishing stage.
The objective of this joint Avanti/Ultimate partnership was to develop a high level of integration that would provide print professionals with a simple to deploy cost effective yet powerful solution, without needing to invest in IT resources or programming. With the exponential growth in the print on demand and short-run printing market, print providers need to automate as many touch-points as possible in order to remain profitable.
