Hour one: Markzware. This software publishing company caters to the worldwide graphic, printing and publishing industries. FlightCheck is a stand-alone application that can inspect over 45 layout application types and hundreds of image types. The amazing thing is that you do not even need to purchase Acrobat to perform quality control checks on PDF files!
Whenever print shop managers make the decision to adopt a PDF workflow, they need preflight and conversion tools that can easily accept a wide variety of file formats. Increasingly, customers are using business office software applications like Microsoft Word and Publisher. This is bad news for printers, since they would rather be dealing with QuarkXPress or InDesign files.
The solution is a combination of Markzware’s wide technical knowledge of file formats and applications like FlightCheck, Q2ID, ID2Q and MarkzTools. All of these are easy-to-use, cost effective solutions for prepress and print shop managers. While plugins and XTensions like Q2ID, ID2Q and MarkzTools convert and migrate data from application to application, FlightCheck checks those files, including PDFs to ensure proper printability.
