Assemble print jobs with ease
You perform the same tasks to prepare every file for printing. Doesn’t it make sense to use the same make-ready software to do it? Use RSA ReadyPrint™ to assemble jobs and adjust print settings using a single, universal interface, even in environments with printers from multiple brands.
Switch once, cut a lot
Print workflow slows when you have to use dedicated make-ready software for each printer in your fleet, especially if your operators are unfamiliar with every unique interface. With RSA ReadyPrint, you only have to interact with one interface, so you can transition from job to job quickly with fewer delays.
Grab your ticket and go
The faster you complete one job, the sooner you can move on to the next revenue opportunity. Every print job includes critical information, such as:
- Number of sheets
- Print stock
- Color characteristics
- Page exceptions
- Subset finishing
- Media catalog data
See all of it right in the job ticket — while you work — so you can manage the project from its arrival to completion quickly and accurately, with less risk for last-second surprises that can cause delays throughout the entire print shop.
Minimize the learning curve
You want your team to be print experts so they can make more informed decisions that save you money. Simplify their daily tasks by using only one make-ready tool for the entire production fleet. You can train new employees more quickly, and operators can focus on core responsibilities instead of toggling between multiple prepress solutions.
Be at the center of it all
With optional modules, RSA ReadyPrint can accept jobs from RSA’s WebCRD™ web-to-print solution, and integrate seamlessly into RSA’s QDirect™ enterprise print management software, so you can centrally manage print jobs and route them to any production printer in your fleet. The files can arrive from almost any source, and you’ll still be able to edit details prior to printing. Or, you can have the tool do it for you — based on information already in the file — to save even more time.
Reprint without the rework
Save print settings, including print sizes, colors, number of sheets and more, so you can complete reprints or jobs with similar attributes in a fraction of the time.
Merge multiple files into one job
Simplify everyday print tasks by assembling multiple files into a single, PDF-based job, without losing their native format. Gather TIFF, Microsoft Office, PDF, PostScript, RDO or Kodak SMARTBOARD files. Scan hardcopy from connected or networked TWAIN scanners, merge them into a single job ticket, and preview the print layout for easier processing as the job moves through your print shop.
Pick the best printer for the job
Use RSA ReadyPrint™ to route every job to the most appropriate printer, regardless of brand. Match every job — whether a short black-and-white run, large color job or something in-between — to the printer in your fleet that can handle the job the fastest and most economically.
Look your best
Use your printing knowledge to enhance image quality for every job on every printer. Adjust color variations and brightness, eliminate specks and repair skewed images. You can even insert or crop entire images with hardcopy scan support with ease.
Add more than you take away
Reduce how much you work — not how much you do. Manage print files from a single user interface to simplify workflow. Add, delete and drag-and-drop to reorder pages. Add watermarks, stamps, page numbers, headers and footers, tabs, bleed tabs, chapters and more. Perform imposition tasks to expedite printing and binding with less waste in less time from the easy-to-use interface.
