Solimar Systems has released a new version of SOLitrack with several new features, including web-based job control, proof and approval capabilities, and JDF finishing for PDF files to maximize the effectiveness and efficiency of a remote print production workflow.
The new SOLitrack 2.4 introduces a central dashboard, now available worldwide as a web-based platform with SOLitrack Mobile. It displays event notifications and tracks Solimar’s Chemistry platform components in detail, providing users in-depth views of the production workflow processes.
The software keeps a continuous record of processing activities, providing a history of the workflow that can be viewed and reported in real-time. The platform constantly monitors the production workflow for errors, notifying appropriate users on issues or events needing attention.
‘Many print businesses need their operational staff to remotely oversee and manage processes in their factories. As such, company managers need visibility, live access, and control to ensure production processes run smoothly,’ said Jonathan Malone-McGrew, senior director of engagement at Solimar Systems. ‘SOLitrack provides a comprehensive, reliable production print workflow solution to do just that. It enables companies to track and report on workflow processes from the shop floor or remote locations.’
The new approval feature in SOLitrack 2.4 empowers print service providers to automate jobs and work orders' approval process. From the secure, web-based SOLitrack client, everyone in the approval chain can review, approve or reject jobs. Individual components of jobs can be managed with the Piece Level Tracking (PLT) feature. The new tool also supports multi-step approvals, including rules for the overall review process, notifications, and auto-approvals based on schedules and events.
With SOLitrack’s support for Job Definition Format (JDF) finishing controls, operators can direct jobs to JDF-enabled printers to dynamically apply the appropriate tray calls, stapling, binding, or other finishing.
‘We’re excited to deliver this new functionality and grateful to our Customer Advisory Council members who provided helpful insights to help boost their productivity and empower remote working,’ added Mary Ann Rowan, chief experience officer at Solimar Systems. ‘We’re working hard to make 2021 a stellar year full of valuable enhancements as well as a celebration of our 30th anniversary.’
