Workflow Automation That Pays For Itself

tflow_feature_dashboard

 

When we talk to people in the industry about workflow automation, time and expense are often identified as the leading barriers to adoption. Let us share some stats from a recent installation we completed for a general imager that illuminate why we believe companies can no longer afford not to automate.

Our clients report that Aleyant tFLOW’s tools saves a minimum of 1 hour of each project manager’s time, and 1 hour of each CSR’s time per day. First, let’s look at an investment in tFLOW automation:

Average installation and training – $2000

12-month subscription at $495/month (Enterprise) – $5940

First-year total: $7940

Now let’s look at savings: Using a calculation based on only 2 employees at $60,000/year, working 60 hours each/month, for a total of 3840 hours/year. Two people saving an hour apiece per day = 40 hours saved per month and 480 hours saved per year. If the average cost of labor is $31.25/hr x 48, tFLOW saves $15,000 in a year, and matches ROI after only 6 months.

Real implementation provides values in order of several times this figure as you add the savings of additional managers, technicians and CSRs, but even with the extremely conservative valuation described above, the numbers add up in favor of tFLOW.

Upcoming Aleyant Webinar: Learn How to Add Workflow Automation to Your Storefronts with Aleyant tFLOW

a_tflow_h

Date & Time: Thursday, December 15 @ 1 PM Central – Register here today! 

Learn how to gain efficiencies in your print shop by adding workflow automation to your storefronts with Aleyant tFLOW at our upcoming webinar.

Print operations can be enhanced by using Aleyant tFLOW (formerly Tucanna tFLOW), a powerful digital proofing and prepress automation workflow that is already integrated into the Aleyant ecosystem. It simplifies difficult file management tasks and processes to optimize efficiency and production throughput. tFLOW allows customers, sales representatives, prepress operators and production teams to collaborate in real-time 24/7 with total visibility, eliminating lengthy email chains, text messages and calls that cause missed deadlines and costly mistakes and delays. In additon, tFLOW’s modern and open architecture easily integrates with any MIS, Web2Print, ERP and Output Systems. Specifically this upcoming webinar will cover these key areas:

Autoproof

tFLOW automatically creates proofs based on your templates. Create your own layout with the information you would like to appear on the proof, and tFLOW will auto-fill the fields as well as automatically place artwork on landscape and portrait layouts. You can also add elements such as marks, trim, live area indicators, and finishing parameters. Proofs are automatically sent out for approval, and can also be downloaded as PDF’s.

Preflight

tFLOW puts the “pre” back into preflight. Speed up your turnaround times as files are automatically checked when they come into your shop, not after they have been sitting in folders for a day. You, your customer, and sales team will know if files are printable within a couple of minutes of receiving them. Files are not just checked, but also fixed, with options such as adding bleed, marks, flattening transparencies, converting fonts to outlines, and checking spot color integrity, to name a few.

Dashboard

tFLOW’s dashboard provides real-time information and updates. tFLOW will give you status updates on all of your jobs every 15 seconds. Keep track of jobs which are still waiting for approvals, missing artwork, on hold due to preflight errors, and ready to be sent to production. All without a single phone call or email.

Autoflow

Start automating repetitive prepress tasks. This allows designers to be designers – lets them spend time on custom projects by automating the timely, repetitive tasks.

Collaboration

Tired of receiving emails, and being CC’d on countless others? tFLOW allows you to collaborate real-time, making comments and annotations on the proof quick and simple. Everything about the job is visible to everyone on the team – not lost somewhere in your inbox.

This webinar is scheduled for Thursday, December 15, 2016 at 1 PM Central. Time will be allotted for a Q&A session at the end of the webinar. Space is limited, register here today!
