Crawford Technologies Showcases Advanced Workflow Automation Solutions that Streamline Operations at PRINTING United

October 11, 2023, Toronto, ON – Crawford Technologiesprovider of innovative document solutions that streamline, improve and manage customer communications, will showcase a range of workflow automation solutions that enable organizations to streamline their document processing workflows, reduce manual touchpoints and achieve greater operational efficiency at the 2023 PRINTING United Expo being held October 18-20 in Atlanta.

In Booth B1756, Crawford Technologies will demonstrate its recently introduced SmartSetup, a no-code software solution that uses artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to fully automate the time-consuming task of indexing and extracting data from print files. Using SmartSetup, business users can perform indexing with the push of a button and quickly verify that it is done correctly. The unique technology of SmartSetup makes it easier for organizations to onboard customer communications to their document factories, hastening digital transformation efforts. It reduces the cost and time needed by more than 90%, resulting in significant savings.

Additionally, Crawford Technologies will highlight PRO DocNow, a SaaS offering that adds flexibility to any print and mail operation by reengineering, optimizing and normalizing print and PDF files for print and finishing equipment utilization and increased operator productivity. The solution includes a postal process for NCOA/CASS and presort, which ensures mailings are properly sorted and delivered, reducing costs and improving delivery times. PRO DocNow also offers data stream splitting, sorting and merging capabilities, helping to maximize the production of printers and inserters, as well as reducing costs and increasing efficiency.

These additional advanced workflow solutions will also be featured in the booth:

  • PRO Conductor – an integration platform that orchestrates every step of an end-to-end workflow, from document composition to delivery. A powerful web-based dashboard allows access to real-time job status and SLAs, ensuring accuracy and efficiency 

·        PDF Accelerator – a solution that streamlines and optimizes PDFs for print, enabling significantly faster processing, reduced pre-press processing job time and onboarding time

  • PRO Lockdown – a solution that enables the encryption of a print file for transport and storage, ensuring that only those who are meant to see the data can do so
  • Operations Express  an advanced post-composition solution for reengineering and enhancing existing high-volume print streams, eliminating the need to make expensive and time-consuming application changes upstream

Crawford Technologies is also sponsoring a complimentary breakfast and panel discussion hosted by Xplor International to be co-located at the PRINTING United Expo. Ernie Crawford, president and CEO of Crawford Technologies, will be a panelist in the discussion, “Efficient Workflows Make Your Press Run Faster,” exploring the ways printers save money with modern workflows. The event will take place October 19 at 7:30-9:30 a.m. in the Georgia World Congress Center (Hall B, Level 2, Room B203).
