Agfa updates StoreFront W2P

Agfa Graphics has released v4.0 of its cloud-based StoreFront web to print solution, available for both its Apogee prepress and Asanti large format workflows.

The most noticeable new feature is the responsive web design that works across all devices regardless of screen size.

The most obvious change is that StoreFront now supports responsive web to print stores, which can be automatically sized for both large and small screens. Andy Grant, Agfa’s global head of Software, explains: “Even in the B2B market that StoreFront focuses on we’re seeing a marked increase in the number of visitors accessing private stores using a phone or tablet. A responsive store design is not only important for increasing the conversion rate, it has also become a go/no-go criteria for business customers.”

Amongst the other new features is the Save for Quote ability, which can generate instant pricing information for an entire product bundle, including shipping costs. Grant explains: “Let’s say a print buyer needs a quote for priority shipping a large quantity of posters for a concert, or several different products for a promotional campaign – StoreFront swiftly displays the total cost for the entire project.”

Agfa has also reworked the shipping module with new packaging algorithms for the grouping of order items and for calculating the optimal number of boxes needed for shipping. There’s a new packaging type for posters, banners and similar types of signage, which can now all be combined on a single packaging roll leading to some cost saving.
