PLP Digital Systems, Inc. (Arlington, VA) upgraded its PlotWorks and OpCenter product lines to increase productivity by unifying monochrome and color workflows, integrating with digital job submission and online ordering applications, and extending workflow to include onsite services. Plus, DigitalGateway Technology provides a common interface for incoming digital work orders.
Both PlotWorks and OpCenter will take advantage of a color-rendering engine that supports market leading technical document devices including Canon, Hewlett-Packard, and Oce. The internal rendering engine of the products has been overhauled to support Computer Aided Design (CAD) color renderings with full support for ICC color profiling to produce the high-quality architectural, engineering, and construction (AEC) content.
A new preflight viewer called the JobExplorer is available in PlotWorks 6.0 and OpCenter 2.1. The JobExplorer provides unprecedented productivity for document preflight, a growing requirement for digital services, enabling full-scale job preparation in one application.
OpCenter Track has been enhanced with DigitalGateway technology to provide an extensible digital work order interface to streamline digital job submission from digital job creation applications such as remote clients or plan rooms. Plug-Ins to the DigitalGateway includes eOrder, ePickup, Repro Desk Remote Plug-in, and DFS Plug-in.
PLP extends workflow to onsite services, commonly referred to as facilities management. Reprographers who use PlotWorks or OpCenter internally can provide the same workflow platform to customers using their on-site services. Capabilities of this offering include job preflight, queue management, overflow workflow, integration with cost accounting applications, support for mid-volume reprographic devices, single integrated monochrome and color workflow.
