  • Additional features to facilitate job uploading and reviewing
  • Increased usability and flexibility

Fujifilm today announces the availability of XMF Remote 9.5, the latest version of its online print job submission and approval system. Part of the company’s XMF Workflow and Production Management Suite, XMF Remote allows both print companies and print buyers to directly and quickly submit and approve jobs for printing. Once approved in XMF Remote, jobs are sent to XMF Workflow for automatic print production.

The main improvement within XMF Remote 9.5 is a new user interface based on the HTML5 web platform, which gives brand owners the opportunity to take advantage of a safe and fully functional tool. John Davies, business strategy manager workflow, Fujifilm Europe, explains: “Due to a growing number of security issues with Java, many IT departments have restricted its use so that some companies can no longer access Java based applications, which included the previous version of XMF Remote.”

John adds: “Shifting the client-facing side of XMF Remote 9.5 to the HTML5 web interface provides users with a modern, feature rich alternative that doesn’t suffer from security vulnerabilities.” He concludes: “Java is still supported, but thanks to HTML5, even companies with strict IT policies can now benefit from an easy to implement and open interface.”

The brand-new HTML5 platform allowed Fujifilm to redesign the user interface and create a cross-platform version which also incorporates new features based on ongoing feedback from customers. Whether end users are accessing the solution via a Mac, PC or an Apple iPad, it is fully compatible with mouse or finger based operations, allowing everyone to have the same consistent user experience for job review and approval.

XMF Remote 9.5 also incorporates advanced features to facilitate production flow. Not only are print service providers able to upload multiple print jobs concurrently, but they can also review magazines and publications with a high pagination through a fast page scrolling mode. This allows a quicker and more efficient approval process, which is further enhanced thanks to the opportunity to sample colours from multiple areas of a job, all at once. Effectively, XMF Remote 9.5 now shows multiple colour sample points simultaneously so that users can immediately check the make-up of colours used in a job and speed up the review process.

John concludes: “By making use of the latest technologies for web applications we are allowing users to improve their operational efficiency, speeding up job hand-off, review, correction, and turnaround times. Additionally, we’re pleased to be able to integrate into XMF Remote 9.5 new functionalities and a new user interface based on the HTML5 platform, which is already available across other products in Fujifilm’s portfolio, including XMF ColorPath and XMF PrintCentre.”

XMF Remote 9.5 is commercially available from November 2013.
