With the latest version, Kodak has upgraded its Prinergy Insite Prepress Portal (IPP) and the Prinergy Insite Creative Workflow (ICW) with multiple new enhancements.
This includes improved usability, due to collapsible Job Group lists in IPP to reduce the amount of scrolling.
IPP allows printers and their customers to submit jobs, track progress, collaborate on changes, and proof and approve work.
ICW supports creative design/content creation, reviews, revisions, approvals, and asset management within a tightly controlled, task-based process.
Kodak said the newly implemented two-factor authentication at login safeguards users’ data and Personally Identifiable Information (PII).
OAuth (open authorisation) for Microsoft Office 365 is also now integrated into IPP and ICW for greater security. Overall, Kodak said the increased security within the IPP and ICW infrastructure helps to prevent malicious attacks.
Additionally, the Insite Gateway plug-in (released in version 9.5) establishes a direct connection between the Adobe Creative Suite and the Prinergy Insite Prepress Portal.
This allows PDF files created with the creative software applications to be transferred easily, quickly, and accurately to a job on the IPP server.
“The release of the Prinergy Insite Portals version 10.0 means all essential components and optional add-ons of the Kodak Prinergy Platform are now up to date and consistent,” said Jim Barnes, chief IT implementation officer at Kodak.
“The new version provides printers with increased performance, helps them meet customer requirements faster and error-free and makes the digital infrastructure for collaboration with customers and creative professionals more secure.
“This launch is further evidence that Kodak continues to support its customers in the printing industry with the continuous development of its software solutions as a trusted partner.”
