Integrating off-the-shelf workflow automation software with your shop’s current systems can be a frustrating, complex, time-consuming, and a costly nightmare. At the end of the day, your efforts may still not eliminate inefficiencies and errors! That’s where Significans Automation comes in. We’re experts in customized integration solutions, by removing the complexities software platforms bring, and achieving the highest levels of automation by way of seamless integration. It’s at our core. It’s ingrained in our DNA.

There’s a lot of talk these days about the necessity of “automation” and “integration”. But be forewarned. With literally dozens of different workflow software products on the market today, how do you “mix and match” to determine what works best in your unique production environment? What specific software do you need and what is unnecessary to fit your application needs? Most importantly, how can they be affordable to yield maximum benefit?

For example, how do you integrate new workflow software with the complex myriad of DFEs (Digital Front Ends), Print MIS (Management Information Systems), ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) platforms, and CRM (Customer Relationship Management) systems used by printers worldwide? The simple fact is pre-built workflows or API’s, will only get you so far. They must be carefully and meticulously integrated into your current systems to achieve optimal efficiency. They must ‘talk to each other’ in a way that streamlines all your shop’s tasks every production day. That’s where we come in!
