EFI's OneFlow is PDF Workflow Software

Hotfolders and icons allow users to customize

Big Picture

EFI's OneFlow is a prepress digital workflow software solution that allows users to customize workflows using an iconbased graphical user interface. It converts files to PDF, and then permits users to preflight, trap, impose, RIP, and soft proof them in a customized workflow for small to mid-sized companies.

OneFlow streamlines workflow by using hotfolders to begin processing a job"?accepting PDF, PDF/X, PS, EPS, TIFF/IT, and DCS 2.0 files. The Correct function allows users to make corrections to incoming PDFs, such as removing objects and rotating and scaling page content. OneFlow integrates EFI's Fiery ColorWise color-management system into its architecture to make color-critical proofing a snap.

Once a job is approved, OneFlow automatically moves the job forward in the workflow after generating a preview of the latest PDF file. This allows last-minute editing changes before it is sent for final output. Other features include the ability to view imposed commercial printing signatures on screen and the ability to archive and e-mail jobs at any stage in the workflow. (EFI: www.efi.com)
