Today’s multi-functional publishing system has to be open, versatile, extremely customisable and robust to fulfill its role of controlling and managing the increasing flow of data produced by today’ s fully digital pre-press production environments. printCentre is an open, multi-tasking, multi-functional, pre-press workflow solution based on client server architecture offering automation, control, production management and tracking. printCentre’s modular approach to workflow management can incorporate existing applications to be utilised and enhanced as well as being able to seamlessly integrate with "best of breed" applications. Because of the great differences in workflow requirements and in the applications used, there are inherent dangers in buying-in to workflow systems that don’t allow integration with other components. With printCentre, users can select which options they need from the system itself, and which tasks are best carried out by third-party applications.

At printCentre’s core is the Workflow Manager. This uses "hot folder" technology to progress jobs through the configured workflow. The workflow server, which is based on Internet and XML technology, is used to monitor and control the workflow. The components (not client) have been written so that they can run on WindowsNT or UNIX - both Solaris, Linux - platforms. In addition, because printCentre uses client/server technology the user can control the system from any remote workstation connected to the network by either a LAN or dial up connection.The modular nature of printCentre allows you to create a system to match your precise needs. printCentre is extensible. Using a simple API it is possible to add custom or use pre-written modules supplied with printCentre. With limited programming skill, users can create their own modules.

printCentre also has been created with redundancy in mind. As an insurance against server failure all components are installed on all servers within the workflow - OPI Servers, Distillers, RIPs, etc. This means there is no reliance on a central server with its inherent single point of failure.
