Ultimate and Aleyant partner to bring improved workflow efficiency to sign and display printers

Aleyant (Wheaton, IL), a leading provider of robust software services, has partnered with Imposition leader Ultimate TechnoGraphics (Montreal) to integrate Aleyant’s full suite of order entry and production automation solutions with Impostrip Automation from Ultimate TechnoGraphics to create the Automation Hub. The combination of these award-winning solutions in the Automation Hub creates a complete, easily customizable automated workflow – from order entry through to final production – for the sign and display graphics and textile industries. The two companies will be demonstrating this unique ecosystem at the SGIA Expo in Booth 2719 beginning today.

“Combining the Aleyant suite of productivity solutions with Ultimate TechnoGraphics Impostrip Automation delivers one of the most affordable and easy-to-use, fully automated solutions for the sign and display graphics and textile markets,” said Greg Salzman, President of Aleyant. “It provides companies with a fully automated solution from the online Pressero storefront for order entry, to online design with eDocBuilder, to estimating with PrintJobManager, and prepress automation with tFLOW, and finally, automated imposition for output. We’re looking forward to discussing the opportunities this presents with attendees at SGIA, learning more about their businesses, and helping them find ways to make themselves more efficient and profitable.”

Adding Impostrip Automation from Ultimate TechnoGraphics to the mix enables an additional layer of automation, automatically imposing and nesting – including dynamic marks, barcodes and generating the cut file for finishing. Aleyant’s Automated Workflow Integrator (AWI) uses a rules-based approach to automate connections between Aleyant’s solutions and Ultimate Technographics Impostrip Automation. By implementing Aleyant and Ultimate TechnoGraphics’ Automation Hub, printers and organizations can benefit from improved profitability, fewer errors with less rework and waste, fewer manual touches with less labour, and faster cycle times with the ability to more effectively handle today’s demanding market and print requirements.
