"This partnership is a perfect example of how Esko's WebCenter can integrate with other market-leading technologies to create an entire managed and secure packaging process," states Bernard Zwaenepoel, senior VP software business at Esko.
"With Global Vision's Docu-Proof text inspection to reduce errors and Scan TVS artwork comparison to assure quality, the solution streamlines artwork and copy approval and delivers a secure and even more automated process. This in turn reduces the need for rework in the approval process, saving time and ultimately reducing costs.
"Also unique is the ability to check human unreadable elements such as barcodes and Braille. It can scan barcode images, verify them and grades each barcode according to CEN/ANSI/ISO standards. Braille text can be interpreted and translated into human readable characters for final text approval. We believe it is a particularly attractive solution for brand owners who want to control and manage their artwork approval process, as well as suppliers that are managing, or are involved in, this process for brands."
In addition, Global Vision will be providing demos of its expert print inspection system, the Scan TVSTM, showcasing the Esko Connector. This print inspection system allows companies to quickly compare all text and graphics from any print job to the approved Esko PDF client file. As a result, users can avoid costly reprints and reworks, which can delay product to market.
"We are thrilled to have this opportunity to showcase how our packaging inspection technology integrates with Esko's pre-press workflow management tools. This is a revolutionary step which combines automated workflow together with automated packaging inspection giving brand owners an end-to-end solution. Our next generation of quality control applications are designed to allow enterprises to work anywhere, anytime and increase productivity and profitability," says Reuben Malz, president, Global Vision Inc.
