We ensure that we remain part of the JDF community by attending all CIP4inter-operability meetings thus ensuring Optimus is always able to connect to the latest releases from the multiple JDF vendors to the Print Industry.

Optimus is the 'spider' within the web, feeding JDF messages to Pre-Press, Press and Post Press whether one or multiple vendors, and in turn receiving JMF messaging back into Optimus.
Optimus JDF has been implemented in conjunction with a wide variety of vendors and in a number of countries. Customers embracing JDF have reaped the considerable benefits that JDF automation can bring including; elimination of re-keying and less human intervention.
A JDF workflow can be as simple or all encompassing as you wish and can be tailored to suit your business. This could be complete JDF connectivity from Estimate to Printing or as simple as JMF data collection feeding back into Optimus – the choice is yours and we will ensure that we meet your business objectives.To plan your JDF project please call our offices where we would be delighted to discuss and advise accordingly.
