Quicker turnarounds with latest EFI Fiery software update 

Electronics For Imaging launched the latest update to the EFI Fiery Command WorkStation, version 6.7, which helps users to “improve automation and job management to better handle growing numbers of short-run print jobs.” 


Fiery Command WorkStation allows users to control all Fiery servers, either local or remote, thereby gaining operational efficiencies and increasing productivity.

A long-time user of EFI Fiery digital front end solutions, sedruck KG in Leipzig, Germany found the new features — available as a free upgrade — helped the company better manage print jobs and improve turnaround times on a growing volume of short-run, quick-turn print jobs.

“The fact that we can now search for jobs across all of our 10 Fiery digital front ends is amazing, it saves us up to 80% on time and energy per search to find what we are looking for. Having two methods to pinpoint a job or jobs is also extremely valuable, plus, the interface has been kept super-simple,” said Manfred Gebauer, head of purchasing & technology process management at sedruck KG. “This new function also provides supervisors insights into a job’s journey. Multiple hits across queues and servers can indicate production challenges that are difficult to identify in other ways, allowing us to investigate and fix issues more readily, getting us back in to full production faster.”

According to research company Keypoint Intelligence, nearly a third of European print service providers and 55% of North American print service providers reported that dealing with a high number of small jobs is a primary challenge for their current workflow. As the number of orders increase, print service providers in many parts of the world are also facing labour shortages, a factor that makes automation more necessary than ever, it said.

The new version 6.7 of the EFI Fiery Command WorkStation – the management software that comes with all Fiery digital front ends (DFEs) for cut-sheet and wide to superwide format printers – addresses “the most pressing job volume and labour needs of print service providers by speeding up the administration and production of print jobs with several new enhancements," EFI said. “Automated job tagging using print presets now helps customers classify, find, and manage jobs faster. And a new search tool gives users the power to search for jobs across all their connected Fiery DFE servers. Both features save valuable time when managing a large volume of jobs in fast-moving print shops."

The Workflow Suite’s Fiery ImageViewer solution also has new controls for reordering, duplicating or deleting pages, eliminating the need to step out of the tool for simple page-level edits.
