Enfocus Switch – Solving Remote Team Collaboration
Meeting deadlines is still possible while the staff is working from home. The application of Enfocus Switch makes it possible for a remote team to have high levels of collaboration. Switch helps to automate your workflow process, bringing each connection and application into one smooth workflow.
Solving Missed Deadlines and Slow Workflow
How many proofing rounds does it take to achieve final approval?
Collecting feedback from senior members of the team, copywriters, etc. can slow everything down if not done properly. When documents are circulated between different groups multiple times, significant delays become very apparent. We have in-house automation tools and to automate the movement of your data that keeps your project on schedule.
Workflow Efficiency with Production Animation

It’s critical that the correct tools are utilized so that there’s a high level of communication between management and design teams, and eventually the printing team.
