[prMac.com] London, UK - ThePowerXChange Website announce the availability of the entire Enfocus product line. ThePowerXChange website now carries the award-winning Enfocus product range that includes Enfocus PitStop Professional, Enfocus PitStop Server, Enfocus PitStop Extreme, CertifiedPDF, Enfocus Instant PDF, Enfocus Instant Barcode and the Enfocus Switch family of workflow automation tools. The products are available electronically through ThePowerXChange.com website or by ordering through their sales office.
"We are pleased to offer the full Enfocus product range including the Switch family of products which are now part of that range and that offer complete workflow solutions," says Greg Stodghill, Support Services Manager. "Enfocus products are known for their preflighting and automation solutions and many customers have contacted us asking to purchase the products from our website via electronic delivery. We are now a Certified Enfocus Reseller and are able to offer customers guidance in which of the Enfocus products is best for their specific workflow needs."
The Enfocus product range includes:
Enfocus PitStop Professional 08 is the de facto standard for graphic arts and publishing professionals who need to preflight, edit or fix PDF files. No other preflight software comes close to PitStop Professional's comprehensive range of tools. PitStop Professional offers unprecedented control over PDFs right up to the minute they go to press.
Enfocus PitStop Server 08 is the indispensable preflighting and auto-correction tool for high-volume PDF workflows. Using Enfocus PDF Profiles and Action Lists, PitStop Server 08 instantly analyses, corrects, reports on and routes files based on the most stringent of requirements. These also include the PDF/X-1a, PDF/X-3 and PDF/X-4 ISO standards and the Ghent PDF Workgroup specifications.
Enfocus PitStop Extreme is the latest addition to the PitStop product family from Enfocus. Where PitStop Professional enables PDF editing inside the familiar environment of Adobe Acrobat, PitStop Extreme is a standalone, high-efficiency alternative. It was conceived from the ground up to quickly check and correct even the most complex PDF files. Anyone familiar with applications such as Adobe Illustrator or Adobe InDesign will feel instantly familiar with the editing environment offered by PitStop Extreme. Every function in Enfocus PitStop Extreme's expansive toolkit is targeted for industry professionals working to a tight deadline. Using PitStop Extreme, jobs go to press faster, documents come from more sources and workflows are more focused.
Enfocus LightSwitch takes away the repetitive tasks associated with receiving and sorting files. It automatically downloads files from one or more FTP servers, receives them as email attachments or handles hot folders. In a very flexible way files can then be sorted into different folders so that they are ready for processing.
Enfocus FullSwitch is a robust automation product that is easy to install and use. Like the entry-level LightSwitch product, FullSwitch offers file reception through FTP and email, sorting of files based on file type and naming conventions and automatic email notifications to customers. In addition, FullSwitch introduces configurators that allows many popular third-party applications to be integrated easily in a workflow. Setup and automation of those applications is fully controlled from within FullSwitch. Automated applications include preflight and correction, colour management, proofing, repurposing tools and more.
Enfocus PowerSwitch is the workhorse of the Switch product family. Using its comprehensive scripting and metadata tools users can build a smarter and more advanced workflow that integrates seamlessly with third-party technology. The workgroup client application bundled with PowerSwitch allows team members to submit and track jobs from their own workstation.
Enfocus Instant PDF makes producing press-ready PDFs easy for creative professionals. Using award-winning Enfocus Certified PDF(R) technology, it's the simplest and most reliable way to create PDFs that comply with print or advertisement vendors' specifications.
CertifiedPDF is the ultimate tool for printers and publishers to effectively communicate PDF output requirements to designers and content creators for error-free print production.
Enfocus Instant Barcode allows creative professionals to easily create, verify, fix and read barcodes directly within the familiar environment of Adobe(R) Illustrator(R). It supports the most commonly used barcode systems, including EAN-8, ISSN and ISBN making it easy to integrate any of them in the design.
Enfocus provides modular and affordable tools safeguarding job quality and enabling automation throughout the complete production chain. Innovative solutions improve communication between design and production while enhancing productivity and predictability through automation of routine tasks. Step-by-step deployment dramatically increases added value without forcing users to completely rethink their way of doing business. Well-known brands include Instant PDF, PitStop and Switch.
