Imposition Built in.
When estimating is dependent on the CAD department for generating a layout plan, lead time becomes a big factor.
Give your estimators the tools to layout jobs in an optimum way to minimize costs and increase throughput. By consolidating the work with estimators, there is less back and forth, less likely opportunity for error, and huge time savings.
HiFlow offers completely customized box design and imposition tools for printers and converters of all sizes.
Reduce the time estimators spend calculating materials. Using FEFCO and ECMA libraries, the Packaging Design module allows dynamic creation of packaging designs.
