Enhancing Pre-Press & Production

Efficiency

For commercial printing, Metrix operates as a standalone application, but it can also seamlessly integrate with industry-leading pre-press workflow solutions like Kodak® Prinergy, ECO3® Apogee, Heidelberg® Prinect, and Fujifilm® XMF.

This integration enables automated imposition and layouts, allowing Metrix to generate intent-based JDF for third-party prepress solutions or fully imposed PDFs. This versatility and adaptability make Metrix suitable for a wide range of applications.

Metrix is a time-saving automation tool that offers intelligent, cost-driven imposition. It dynamically assigns jobs to the most suitable press based on operator preferences, material considerations, and equipment operational cost data. This valuable data can be leveraged in the estimation process, leading to more precise job costing.
