APR and SpotOn! Press Introduce a new Client-Server version of SpotOn! Flexo
“Since the launch of SpotOn! Flexo last November the number one request we have received from users is the ability to share the database file,” says Richard Black, director of digital solutions for APR. “This new client-server version of SpotOn! Flexo allows multiple users to access the same SpotOn! Flexo database file via an internal network or the internet.”
“Our long term product planning had always included a client-server version” says Bruce Bayne, creator of SpotOn! software. “The success of SpotOn! Flexo as a standalone product allowed us to move up this development to meet customer requests” adds Bayne.
The new client-server version of SpotOn! Flexo operates the same way as the current standalone version of SpotOn! Flexo. The software compares the spectral data of a color measured on a press pull (using a spectrophotometer) to the spectral data of the reference color. A quick calculation gives the press operator the optimal density to obtain the closest match to the reference color, or lowest Delta E, or ∆E.
The ability to have multiple users access the same database file means there is no longer a need to keep multiple database files up-to-date. Now a user can be running a job on one press while accessing the database file simultaneously on another press or in the ink room. The new client-server version of SpotOn! Flexo comes standard with two client seats, or users, and additional client seats can be added at anytime.
The new Client-Server version of SpotOn! Flexo will make its debut at Labelexpo Americas 2012. APR will be displaying and demonstrating several new products at Labelexpo, including innovations in plate cleaning, cutting edge spectrophotometer technology, plate mounting and end seal solutions, and much more.
Visit us at Labelexpo Americas 2012 (Booth #536) to learn more about the new Client-Server version of SpotOn! Flexo.
