Wide-format printer service providers looking to print more jobs with less effort, fewer mistakes and consistent output across multiple devices, will want to check out the newest release of Agfa Graphics automated workflow, Asanti 3.0, at the company’s booth (#1350) at ISA Sign Expo 2017. The show is being held April 20-22, 2017, at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Asanti Production, Agfa Graphics’ automated production hub and workflow tool for sign & display printers, automates various procedures, ensuring each printing device under its control conforms to Agfa Graphics’ unique systems approach. This approach integrates and optimizes the engine, ink, media, workflow and color management to ensure the highest quality and reliability, helping print service providers reduce their overall operational costs.
With Asanti 3.0, Agfa offers wide-format printers new functionalities on top of its signature color management solution, automatic pre-flighting and a new, intuitive GUI.
“The streamlined and automated processes in Asanti help wide-format printers simplify the printing process, making them more efficient and reducing their costs. When output is consistent, quality is high and results are predictable the wide-format print providers’ client is always happy,” said Deborah Hutcheson, Director of Marketing, Agfa Graphics.
Asanti 3.0 allows for integration with third-party print equipment, MIS solutions and with the new, in-house software solutions such as PrintSphere and StoreFront, which is also new at Sign Expo.

It’s a simple solution for fast data-sharing that integrates seamlessly into the workflow.
