Software Consultants or Experts


New member
Hi All,

We are looking for a print industry software consultant/expert to help us in the selection or development of a new software tool that will help us streamline some processes. I'm wondering if anyone has worked with someone they would recommend or anyone I should avoid.

Hi Willie,

Could you be more specific on which processes?

I've overseen the development of a few custom applications (client facing web2print and artwork approval) but there aren't too many areas now which wouldn't be well covered with off the shelf software (even if a few systems needed to be bolted together to get the desired result)

We are specifically looking to stream line our gang run printing. We've seen softwares that come close, but fall short in certain key areas.

take a look at the metrix software... it's designed for such tasks, it helps a lot especially if it integrates well with you MIS and impositioning software...

I've supervised the growth of a few customized programs (client experiencing web 2 properties print and paintings approval) but there aren't too many places now which wouldn't be well protected with off the display application (even if a few techniques required to be attached together to get the preferred result)
you literally just restated what Josh said. WTF?

Well since I provide tech support for EFI Metrix I'd like to take a shot at this. I've spent quite a bit of time automation processes. So send me a PM and we can talk shop. Or you can just email direct to and we can start that way.

Color Optimized?

by Noel Ward, Editor@Large
Color is in demand in all types of documents, making color management a critical part of Digital Printing 5.0. Managing color on one device/press can be an easy task with the correct tools and processes. But managing color to ensure printed pages are consistent and repeatable across the different substrates and color gamuts of toner and inkjet can be a much bigger challenge. Properly implemented color management workflows can help achieve consistent color results across multiple devices. Although many end-customers are claiming satisfaction with “pleasing color,” two challenges are still in play. Link to Article
