Aleyant (Wheaton Illinois) a leading in provider of software services to the graphic communications industry, has announced the availability of Version 10 of Aleyant tFLOW – the company’s digital workflow automation and customer service solution for commercial, large-format, label and specialty graphics businesses.

“We continue to focus our development efforts on providing the best possible user experience,” said Greg Salzman, Aleyant’s President. “With this release, I believe we’ve lived up to that promise. Aleyant tFLOW Version 10 incorporates enhancements that make individual users more productive and improves team communications. In today’s highly competitive environment, anything that can be done to reduce touches – and thus time and labour costs – will contribute to a better bottom line. We believe Aleyant tFLOW Version 10 does that. We’ll continue to enhance tFLOW and other Aleyant solutions to increase their value, as well as continue our work with third-party integrations,” he added.

Some Version 10 enhancements include:

  • Configuration flexibility. tFLOW Version 10 can now run on the Linux operating system. This means that tFLOW can be configured for larger virtual machines with scalable and dynamic flexibility that’s especially important in high-volume printing environments.
  • Unified Messaging. tFLOW now offers a centralized messaging centre where users can read and post comments on any job or order, all from the same window. Teams can now communicate more effectively without having to view each job or order individually, to review and post messages.
  • Automated Archiving. Now, in the background, tFLOW will automatically move all unused files to archival drives. This means that users will no longer have to worry about filling up working disk space in high-volume environments, or use up valuable time by manually moving those files to the archive.
  • Personal Upload Link. Each user is given a personal upload link during account creation. This link can be used to upload artwork to tFLOW when file submission occurs prior to order and job creation in the MIS or ERP system.
  • Production Queue Information. This information is now shown in the user interface, allowing users to quickly see which queues production files have been sent. The information is accessible at the job level and in the completely redesigned Global History.
  • Email Log. Users can now view the email log for any event that has triggered an email notification. The email log is available in Activity/History, and in each user’s profile.
