Today's production requirements are to be faster, better, and cheaper. This means: immediate response to customer inquiries, reliably keep promised deadlines, and reduce production turnaround.
The way that Volkswagen promoted the VW Beetle in the nineteen-sixties greatly changed the advertising world – just like that car moved the audience. If the agency copywriter had known then that this claim would prove right, he certainly would have gone to bed deeply satisfied that night. The VW Beetle assembly line kept running from 1946 until 2003.
Of course, we cannot tell if our “Unbreakable” server solutions will keep running just as long. But we are confident that they will. This confidence is based on the feedback we receive from our customers who have worked with our server software for more than a decade, day by day, and without any downtime. It could run likewise for you.
Increase your workflow many times over and integrate remote customers, employees and contractors via the Internet. Intensify your customer relations by providing media data via a Web-based portal with personalized UI. Or collaborate on XPress and InDesign documents as well as on color-matched proofs via Web browser, in a matter of seconds. Of course, automatic PDF/X generation and preflighting with color-matched proofs can also be done locally. Are these enough reasons for HELIOS server solutions?

Today's production requirements are to be faster, better, and cheaper. This means: immediate response to customer inquiries, reliably keep promised deadlines, and reduce production turnaround. And the growing competition of global printers beats down the price. Profit margins are low, hence cost pressure considerably increases. An error rate of zero has to be the objective – be it offset, digital, or large format printing.
Furthermore, print houses are turning more and more into universal and modern media service providers. Different information needs, especially more and more target group oriented publications, change the expectation and complexity of print media. Therefore, the services of a modern print enterprise will have to be digital and networked.
HELIOS server solutions allow for direct connections between customer and printer. A web based job portal serves as a data center for delivering and repurposing print jobs. Web based proofing allows instant remote job releases. In addition, the HELIOS server software helps automate and optimize the workflow: the print data throughput increases, possible problems are recognized early, and color matching is performed automatically whenever the printing process is changed. And finally, to avoid unpleasant surprises, HELIOS server solutions offer quality management prior to the final printing process.
