Enfocus started off as a One Trick Pony, offering preflight solutions only, but today it’s better described as a multifunctional connection centre for print and publishing workflows.
We met Fabian Prudhomme, Vice President, at drupa, to hear about the company’s latest news. He pointed to five main innovations which were demonstrated at drupa, where a common thread was paving the way to work more and more “in The Cloud”.
The first innovation Prudhomme wanted to point out was the new co-creation business platform, better known as the Enfocus Appstore, launched right before drupa. In line with the spirit of the Apple App Store, these apps (small software modules) are the result of an already existing ecosystem of Switch developers and users. The apps themselves are checked by Enfocus quality engineers before they are accepted onto the store.
It mainly features useful Scripts describing specialised workflows in Switch. So a clever script programmer or systems integrator can actually make some money out of his or her useful scripts, and for the Switch Community, which is rapidly growing, it means that a lot of workflow solutions are available for download for a reasonable yearly subscription amount, saving many days or even weeks worth of time and effort.
