InSite allows for collaborative proofing by the customer from multiple locations, by multiple people, all simultaneously. This reduces proof OK accuracy and allows for faster and more efficient proof OK’s. It also automatically tracks all file corrections made by our customers as well as internally.
Matchprint Virtual Remote Contrast Proofing
Allows customers to proof color accurate files from their own facility on color calibrated monitors. Once again improving accuracy and facilitating faster turnaround times for file and proof OK’s. It can also dramatically reduce the need and cost of hard contract proofs.
