Arifiq partners HP PrintOS

Arifiq has teamed up with HP to link its estimating engine with HP’s Print OS, allowing ad hoc jobs to be automatically quoted and printed, marking the first implementation of this technology in a digital workflow.

Arifiq has developed an automated estimating system that can produce job tickets and impositions as print-ready PDFs.

The Arifiq system can automatically create quotes, job tickets, gang-runs, cost-optimized impositions and production routes for jobs moving through a production workflow. It means that companies running PrintOS Box and PrintOS Site Flow will be able to receive job tickets and, most importantly, print-ready imposed PDFs – without requiring predefined products. The Arifiq technology takes care of the quoting and imposition, including adding printer’s marks, while Print OS oversees the preflighting.

Gershon Alon, HP PrintOS Business Manager: “Many print service providers are struggling with quickly onboarding their ad-hoc jobs into production, and arifiQ technology is addressing this issue. With the new integration ad-hoc jobs can get quoted and automatically submitted into production within minutes, saving time and money, and reducing errors. I’m happy to have arifiQ on board as a new PrintOS partner, and look forward to working together and exploring new applications.”

This integration was pioneered at Hudson Printing, based in Salt Lake City, USA. Hudson was already using both Arifiq and Print OS Site Flow. CEO Paul Hudson says that he suggested this as a way to use Site Flow for his ad-hoc digital print jobs, adding: “The combination of Arifiq and Site Flow will allow us to move all digital print jobs from estimating through production faster and easier than ever before.”
