GMG takes proofing to another level and enables users to run and manage proof jobs from anywhere and at any time – platform-independent via a web browser and even from your smartphone. If you are looking for flexibility in proofing and always want to stay up to date, a software update contract (SUC) offers a clear advantage – GMG ColorProof GO is included in this service.
Thanks to GMG ColorProof GO’s browser-based user interface, users can manage and run proof jobs from almost any device. With the new release, GMG appeals especially to professional users who are looking for maximum flexibility control and increased productivity. Multiple proof locations are a typical scenario, as well as mobile working and the trend towards working from home reinforce the relevance of GMG ColorProof GO.
Besides the new flexibility, GMG ColorProof GO scores high with its intuitive user interface. To start a job, you simply drag and drop the file into the appropriate drop zone – that’s it. With GMG ColorProof GO, all connected proof systems are conveniently controlled and managed via a web browser. Even a device recalibration can be done remotely from any workstation or your smartphone. The mere possibility of being able to check the status of a proof job remotely is reassuring for users and provides process control.
The flexibility of GMG ColorProof GO also makes sense in a company with only one location. Every workstation, whether Mac or PC, can now be used to run and manage proof jobs. No need for an operator to walk to the proofing room where traditionally the proof workstation and the proofer would be found. New users can be added to the GMG ColorProof GO network via email and their roles can be assigned individually. This type of flexibility saves a lot of time and increases productivity. GMG solutions are designed to cope in a busy production environment. If several users want to access the same proofing systemsimultaneously, GMG ColorProof GO will comfortably and reliably handle the workload.
2023 promises an interesting ride for print in India
Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and
multi-channel IPPGroup. While the print and packaging industries have been resilient in the past 33 months since the pandemic lockdown of 25 March 2020, the commercial printing and newspaper industries have yet to recover their pre-Covid trajectory.
The fragmented commercial printing industry faces substantial challenges as does the newspaper industry.
While digital short-run printing and the signage industry seem to be recovering a bit faster, ultimately
their growth will also be moderated by the progress of the overall economy. On the other hand book
printing exports are doing well but they too face several supply-chain and logistics challenges.
The price of publication papers including newsprint has been high in the past year while availability is diminished by several mills shutting down their publication paper and newsprint machines in the past four years. Indian paper mills are also exporting many types of paper and have raised prices for Indian printers. To some extent, this has helped in the recovery of the digital printing industry with its on-demand short-run and low-wastage paradigm.
Ultimately digital print and other digital channels will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future. For instance, there is no alternative to a rise in textbook consumption but this segment will only reach normality in the next financial year beginning on 1 April 2023.
Thus while the new normal is a moving target and many commercial printers look to diversification, we believe that our target audiences may shift and change. Like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.
Our 2023 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock and reconnect with your potential markets and customers. Print is the glue for the growth of liberal education, new industry, and an emerging economy. We seek your participation in what promises to be an interesting ride.
