Enfocus Releases Switch 13 workflow software

enfocusswitch13-inThe newest release of Enfocus’ business automation solution, Enfocus Switch 13, gives users more tools for flow creation, remote communication and improved speed. Another development is a web browser-based interface that makes Switch 13 “ready for the future. Together, these features provide businesses with resources that facilitate smarter productivity management,” said the company.

enfocusswitch13A-inThe three key improvements in Switch 13 include:

  • The last release of Enfocus Switch introduced new functionality that allowed users to connect to the Switch Server through any popular web browser. In Switch 13, users can now browse, view and sort-switch log messages remotely – and filter out messages that are not of interest to them, keeping the filter saved and bookmarked.
  • Improved user experience. Customers reported that the flow documentation tools released in Switch 12.3 made it easier for employees of all abilities to work with the technology. Switch 13 builds on these improvements. The new release includes a redesigned appearance with fresh icons and an extra icon for auto-managed folders (to provide an easier way to understand the flows). In addition, Switch 13 also includes an invisible grid that makes it easier to align the elements, and avoids the time-consuming task of cleaning up the elements after they’ve been placed.
  • Significant Speed Improvement. Beta users reported significant speed improvements while using the updated file handling tools in Switch 13. Users reported that Switch 13 is up to 4 times faster (depending on the configuration) while assembling Job or Hold Jobs, and even 7 times faster (depending on the configuration) while using the Split or Merge PDF tools.

“After we introduced Switch 12.3, customers told us what a positive impact the new documentation and remote communication features meant to them and their businesses,” said Antje Grüger, Product Manager at Enfocus. “In this new release, we take those features even further to make sure the new technological additions really make Switch ‘future-proof.’ Customers will find improvements to how flows are created, and will also see new tasks they can manage remotely. We’re confident that these features – combined with improved performance, new tools and updated configurators – will make Switch 13 a release that customers will value.”
