Tell us how ColorLogic products are utllized
The workflow system we had been using became obsolete so we began requesting information from the various companies with color management solutions on the market. We located some of these companies online and some were connections through our regular suppliers. We were evaluating the various options available and, in the end, determined that the solution ColorLogic offered was a great balance between price, quality, ease of use and reliable output quality while working in an environment which requires use of many color spaces including extended gamut.
ZePrA color server has excellent performance, allowing us to create multiple queues for color processing in an easy and intuitive way.
What benefits have you seen since implementing ColorLogic ZePrA?
It is normal for our clients to work in various environments ranging from art catalogs to working on lightweight papers intended for mailing. For us, it is essential to make workflows categorized by type of media, where we have predictable color output and are able to to convert and optimize files according to the media on which will be printed. ColorLogic ZePrA offers all this functionality and quality and convinced us during the tests.
How has quality improved by implementing ColorLogic software?
There has been a great improvement in the quality of our work with the various reference profiles and the ability to get a consistent environment in color reproduction. Additionally, the SmartLink technology helps us immensely with getting the right color conversion.
Do you think the support received both pre-sale and post-sale has been satisfactory?
I can only say that it has been “impeccable”. The first contact with ColorLogic was a online request for a demo license, which allowed us to immediately and effectively start working with the software. We then had the local distributor, id-Soft in our facility for in-depth training for setup. Since then, we have only needed brief online support for software maintenance and upgrades.
The latest version 4 of the high-performance color server ZePrA, developed by the German ColorLogic GmbH, has successfully passed its test period at alprinta GmbH.
The German SKN printing and publishing group has a long tradition which dates back to the last century. SKN currently employs approximately 450 employees.
Modern printing companies like alprinta have to handle constantly changing printing conditions. In addition, exact reproduction of spot colors is exceedingly important. alprinta serves these different requirements with specific color management and in this scenario the color server ZePrA plays a central role.
