Xitron Establishes Workflow Trade-up Program
Plan designed to migrate users of Rampage and other dated workflows
"When a prepress manager discovers that the software he or she has relied on for years will not be further developed or updated, it can be a trying event," according to Karen Crews, President of Xitron. There may be features or functionality lacking, which could be improved with a new system and that's a positive aspect; but the cost of replacement, especially when it's not planned for, can strain operating budgets. "What we hope to do with this program is make it easier for users to bring their prepress departments up to the latest technology,"
Xitron's Sierra workflow incorporates the latest Adobe PDF Print Engine (3.8) in a client-server architecture that includes dynamic imposition, JDF compatibility, and 3D soft proofing of finished jobs. When coupled with Sierra's three free years of support and upgrades, the trade-up program can literally save thousands of dollars off of normal pricing. Navigator 11 is built around the core Global Graphics Harlequin RIP together with workflow modules for preflight, ink re-mapping, and imposition, and similar savings to the end user are available.
All high-resolution RIPs and workflows are eligible for participation in the program; the only requirement being a surrender of the old software's license key or dongle once installation of the new system has been completed and approved.
