Open Print Producer is a production control and workflow automation system that is designed to automate the document production life cycle from composition through the print to mail process.
Producer has an open architecture that can easily integrate with your existing production environment to provide centralized control and automation of your end to end distribution process.
Producer is based on thin client technology and is platform independent. This design means no software is required on the users desktop and the application can be accessed from anywhere in your enterprise.
Producer has customizable exits and or application program interfaces to allow fast and seamless integration within your existing production environment.
Sefas knows each company is different and typically employs several vendor solutions of varying vintage to deliver their services. This was the driving force behind the open architecture of Producer and is what makes our product vendor independent and easy to implement.
Producer uses predefined job profiles to detail the workflow for each job. The profiles contain important information such as customer details, service level commitments and all the required operational parameters andinstructions. Once a job is imported into the Producer receiving queue it is matched to a predefined job profile. The job profiles, in conjunction with internal “daemons” continually running within the Producer environment help guide and monitor each jobs through the various steps of the production process.
Producer enables factory-like efficiency and control across your entire document distribution operation.
Regardless of what equipment and systems you already own, Producer can be incorporated into your existing environment without spending millions of dollars on products and services, or waiting months for integration.
Sefas has already done the integration work for you with automation profiles that guide the workflow from end to end.
Whether your documents are destined to be printed and mailed, delivered online, or archived in a document repository, Producer helps you to leverage automation to not only control the physical production, but also guide the digital production as well.
