IT departments and businesses need smart cloud services. Why? Because we are facing an ever-increasing task complexity. This is a phenomenon that leads to inflated costs and binds IT resources that businesses need for innovation. However, you can outsource all or parts of your IT infrastructure management. Konica Minolta Gauteng can give you peace of mind, and more time and energy to focus on your business.
There is rapid development in online technology and increasingly complex demands from customers. This means we need to enhance productivity and connectivity for all our IoT devices. We are competing with the flexibility smartphones have today with once-unimaginable computing powers in the space of a few years.
Luckily, in simple steps, Smart Cloud Services allow your organisation to download an app that will tailor your smartphone to your organisation’s individual needs and efficiently manage your finances, edit photos, let you access cloud services, and more.
With Konica Minolta Gauteng, you will benefit from this newfound scope and flexibility in your personal life, and the world of business.
Smart Cloud Services That Instantly Connect You
Information management is becoming increasingly important, especially with the amount of information being passed around. Information is growing exponentially from document files to emails, to online materials, and invoices among others that accumulate into a massive data volume.
Unstructured information, which is often not classified is stored in various places. The main problem is usually missing consistent data infrastructure, creating time-consuming administration and non-secure processes.
However, you can optimise your information-relevant processes with Konica Minolta Gauteng’s smart cloud services known as our suite of Managed Content Services (MCS).
Hybrid Workflow Connectivity
The workplace is changing as we speak, and more businesses are entering into hybrid setups using smart cloud services. Therefore, it is important that you make the most out of your investment by making the transition to digital as easy and efficient as possible.
Offsetting connectivity is simple when using our hybrid workflow connectivity combined with in-production flexibility, which allows you to use both your digital and offset equipment all within a single interface.
Over the years, commercial offset printers developed their workflows exclusively with offset printing in mind. However, when digital printing devices were introduced to the production mix, the offset firms found workflow requirements were different and therefore managed the flows separately.
But now customer demand and needs have changed.
There is a need to print the same work in both offset and digital. To reduce costs, errors, and re-runs and provide a strategy to meet the ever-changing demands of the market, a hybrid workflow using smart cloud services emerged.
How Can You Connect These Two Worlds: Litho And Digital?
The first thing to remember is that while digital and offset print workflows are distinct, they can be made to complement one another. Today’s hybrid workflows give you the best of both worlds – at your fingertips.
Better yet, a hybrid workflow using smart cloud services allows a single pre-press operator to manage and control different devices from a single station. You use a single workflow process supporting both offset and digital output options, providing greater colour consistency, content reliability, faster production time, and fewer errors with the help of automated workflows.
Since jobs are being processed by the same RIP, you will maintain output integrity across different devices. The pre-flight engine on offset workflow also eliminates issues and potential problems with PDF files.
Imposition can be managed and automated for both digital and offset, thereby optimising pre-press and make-ready time.
