Electronics For Imaging, Inc., launched the latest update to EFI Fiery Command WorkStation, version 6.7. Fiery Command WorkStation enables a unified Fiery Driven print room, allowing users to control all Fiery servers, either local or remote.
A long-time user of EFI Fiery digital front end solutions, sedruck KG in Leipzig, Germany found that the new features in the latest EFI Fiery Command WorkStation — available as a free upgrade — helped the company better manage print jobs and improve their turnaround times on a growing volume of short-run, quick-turn print jobs.
“The fact that we can now search for jobs across all of our 10 Fiery digital front ends is amazing, it saves us up to 80% on time and energy per search to find what we are looking for. Having two methods to pinpoint a job or jobs is also extremely valuable, plus, the interface has been kept super-simple,” said Manfred Gebauer, head of Purchasing & Technology Process Management at sedruck KG. “This new function also provides supervisors insights into a job’s journey. Multiple hits across queues and servers can indicate production challenges that are difficult to identify in other ways, allowing us to investigate and fix issues more readily, getting us back in to full production faster. Thank you, Fiery Team.”
The new version 6.7 of Fiery Command WorkStation – the management software that comes with all Fiery digital front ends (DFEs) for cut-sheet and wide- to super-wide- format printers – addresses the most pressing job volume and labor needs of print service providers by speeding up the administration and production of print jobs with several new enhancements. Automated job tagging using print presets now helps customers classify, find, and manage jobs. And, a new search tool gives users the power to search for jobs across all their connected Fiery DFE servers.
“Getting many short-run, high-quality jobs done as fast as possible is in the Fiery DNA, and we have always been focused on the challenges of high-volume, short-run work,” said John Henze, vice president of sales and marketing, EFI Fiery. “Our customers choose Fiery because it excels in this area, and this newest Command WorkStation release gives customers even more of what they want.”
