Enfocus launches PitStop Connect for PDF printing
Enfocus NV, a vendor for graphic design and printing solutions, launched PitStop Connect, a new tool for creating desktop-based Connectors for routing PDF files from the desktop of creative professionals to publishing and printing houses. The aim of PitStop Connect is to streamline the workflow between the community of creative professionals and the publishing/printing houses.
The desktop-based Connectors can be created by the publishers and printers, and distributed to creative professionals making it easier for the professionals to deliver the perfect PDF, meeting the preflight specifications, to their publishers or printers. The creative professionals can place these Connectors on their desktop without any need for installing software.
Creative professionals can drop their PDF files on the Connector which preflight the PDF based on Enfocus preflight engine and the settings defined by the publisher or printer. The Connectors also include a facility to send the preflighted PDF files via FTP or Enfocus Switch software to the site of publisher or printer.
The PitStop Connector can also add metadata that can be used to automate the processes with Enfocus Switch. PitStop Connect ensures that files are delivered only to the printer or publisher who has provided the Connector and can reduce the errors.
PitStop Connect is priced at USD 4,999. Enfocus charges only one-time fee to publishing and printing houses for creating PDF Connectors which could be then distributed as many times as required.
