Large volume printing jobs present a unique challenge to printers everywhere. Not getting the job right the first time can result in a high volume of paper and ink wastage. In addition to wastage of materials, the amount of time spent on the job also goes out of the window. Delays in getting the finished product to your customers may then ensue, causing customer dissatisfaction, which may in turn also potentially damage your company’s reputation.
Professional printers know that the ability to organise and manage your workflow is the key to success, when delivering high volume printing services. Konica Minolta’s AccurioPro Flux is a professional make-ready software that helps you to efficiently manage and automate your digital printing workflow.
The AccurioPro Flux is compatible with production machines such as the AccurioPress C14000 series with IC-610, AccurioPrint C750i and the AccurioPress C4080 series.
Although AccurioPro Flux Essential is the basic version of the software, it still comes with powerful features that allow for the centralised control of all printers and the automation of recurring tasks. This is vital for any sort of large volume printing. AccurioPro Flux Essential lists all print jobs in a main window, so you can have a perfect overview of every job’s status. A Basic Preflight Check function is also included to eliminate printing problems arising from missing fonts, low-resolution images and transparencies that can derail your progress when you’re already tight on time. Make-ready functions that allow you rearrange, label and add pages are also included. All these features and more help to ease the pain of high volume digital printing, by offering you all the functionalities you need in one place.
In spite of being optimised for Konica Minolta products, AccurioPro Flux can be integrated with third party devices, which means you’ll be able to oversee all of your print jobs with AccurioPro Flux regardless of whether all of your printers are under the Konica Minolta brand.

This means customers will be able to send print jobs directly to the company network. Your operators will also have access to each other’s print jobs, ensuring a smoother and easier collaboration digital printing process.
The ability to add predefined rules, automatically receive jobs from customers and having access to all ongoing print jobs will definitely make it easier for you to offer quality large volume printing services.
