:APOGEE Suite Offers Integrated Publishing, Collaborative Portal, Complete Prepress and Color Management Solutions.
:APOGEE Suite consists out of four main category modules:
:Apogee Publish has solutions focusing on all tasks from content management to page creation for print and web.
It contains :Apogee Media which is tailored to the needs of content creators and brand owners, as well as DTP departments at print service providers and design agencies. Existing tools for word processing and desktop publishing are leveraged into a more automated integrated workflow with a built-in content management solution. This collaborative production platform introduces editorial and layout activities that integrate easily with environments such as :Apogee Portal and :Apogee Prepress.
:Apogee Portal strengthens the communication and collaboration between printers and their customers. It allows all participants throughout the graphic communications process to collaborate on projects and tasks within a 24/7 accessible web-environment. This results in higher productivity, a shorter number of steps before printing, and reduced costs of reworks and errors.
It includes :Apogee WebApproval for file and softproof retrieval, :Apogee StreamProof for annotation of fast, high resolution softproofing and :Apogee ProjectManager for more advanced functionality and online management of print projects.
:Apogee Prepress provides a full JDF-enabled prepress production hub, allowing everyone in the production environment to manage and control all prepress processes. The increased level of automation gives production environments the ability to accomplish more functions with fewer people. It offers complete connectivity to Agfa's set of CtP engines, as well as innovative technologies such as :Apogee InkSave for increased ink efficiency and cost savings, and a new component called :Apogee Platemaker for continuous plate production.
:Apogee Color seamlessly integrates end-to-end quality and color management solutions into the :Apogee Suite solutions. :Apogee Color, including :ColorTune and :SherpaProof, produces predictable soft and hard copy proofs at critical points in the production cycle. It makes sure that everyone in the communication process looks at the same proof wherever they are.
