Fujifilm to offer XMF subscription

Fujifilm is now offering its XMF prepress workflow as a subscription service. This is tied in as part of the recent Platesense leasing initiative though XMF is also available as a stand-alone subscription.

Fujifilm’s XMF workflow is a comprehensive prepress workflow built around the Adobe PDF Print Engine.

John Davies, Group Product Manager, Workflow, Fujifilm Graphic Systems Europe explains: “The Fujifilm XMF subscription service is a response to market demand. Many print businesses are unhappy with their current workflow solution, but struggle to justify the significant up-front cost of investing in an entirely new system. By making XMF available on subscription, print businesses get all the benefits of a world-class workflow solution, for an affordable monthly fee. The benefits, particularly to small and medium sized businesses with lower turnovers, will be substantial.” 

Davies points out that the XMF ColorPath and Griffin planning software solutions are already available via subscription so this is a logical step.

But he adds that XMF can still be purchased outright, noting: “This provides customers with more choice on how they wish to plan out their investment in a new workflow, many customers still prefer the ownership approach over the ongoing subscription model, but software by subscription is for sure more accepted by customers than it used to be even a couple of years ago.”
