Printers and Publishers

Secure file transfer and file transfer automation are why managed file transfer solutions are proven to have better ROI and are replacing more traditional FTP servers in printers and publishers all over the world.

Being able to share large graphic files between the business and the customer and being able to collaborate on files across a range of platforms including Mac, Windows, tablet and smart phone are both key requirements.


Examples of how managed file transfer solutions can help.

By using a managed file transfer solutions’ easy to use and highly accessible web browser portal, companies can receive artwork and adverts and distribute proofs without the need for physical media.

By enabling users to upload files and download proofs, a publisher or printer can significantly speed up the approval process when designing print media such as catalogues. Integration of a web portal into a website will enable secure file transfer of files without the need to configure FTP client software.
