Ink is one of the major drivers of job cost on production inkjet so you would think that estimating and tracking consumption would be top of mind for profit seeking print organizations. Canon has multiple tools to support print service providers in managing cost. Canon recently announced VIEW, an intuitive inkjet estimation solution that operates as a hybrid application with both cloud-based and local components. Implementing an intelligent algorithm, VIEW automatically generates enhanced production scenarios for each possible product selection, calculating ink usage, media use, printer and finishing run times, roll width and sheet size, and best imposition options.
In addition, TrueProof is designed to allow print providers to estimate ink usage and costs, rectify inconsistencies in layout and registration, expedite simultaneous or consecutive digital proof approvals, all prior to final production, helping to ensure outstanding quality, low cost and integrity of the final printed product.
This “Ask the Experts” session will focus on development of accurate production costs. You will hear from Canon Solutions America experts and customers on the VIEW application capabilities, as well as TrueProof and its business impact on the ability to accurately project costs.
