Caldera has released Flow + 2.0, the latest update of its main workflow solution. The second-generation software has been rebuilt to become the fastest and most accurate large format Caldera workflow system.
The latest improvements in Flow + 2.0 address three key areas to give a better overall performance. New design and graphical interfaces offer an improved user experience, while the real-time statistics engine enables operators to have a current production load image. A production planning module includes a number of tools for optimisation production. The solution not only integrates seamlessly with the Caldera RIP solutions, but is also compatible with most other major RIPs.
Serge Clauss, Caldera Product Sales Manager said, ‘As the printing equipment to develop and improve the software to direct them to do that too. As we saw in FESPA 2013, a new generation of ultra-fast wide format printers that come on the market, and we have anticipated the demand from our customers for these machines with a comprehensive workflow product, which is able to follow his pace.’
Based on over 20 years of experience in large format image, Caldera created Flow + 2.0 to be a complete control panel for printing operations of any size, helping users manage and monitor the work at all stages of the flow work, from quotation to delivery. Among its main features, there is the advanced quotation system which is a particular benefit to existing customers, including the Belgian company wide format, Pelegrie, which has seen significant gains in efficiency through consistent and personalised quotation.
The real-time job tracking is enhanced in the latest release of Flow +, with the engine statistics in real time capable of generating clear graphics and colourful icons to help managers monitor individual and evaluate the overall workload quickly. Another major component is a production planning module in combination with the statistical engine that helps printers to maximise the efficiency of its equipment and resources. Production managers can prioritise work or transfer work from one machine to another within a simple- to-use interface.
