In the dynamic world of digital printing, reaching peak performance requires more than just top-of-the-line printers. It demands a comprehensive software ecosystem that enhances productivity, ensures precision, and elevates the overall printing experience. This is precisely where Durst Software & Solutions steps in as a pivotal component of Vanguard Europe's success.

As a renowned printer manufacturer, Vanguard Europe is committed to delivering cutting-edge solutions that meet the diverse needs of its customers. While the hardware forms the foundation of its printing systems, the integration of advanced software solutions from Durst adds an extra layer of functionality and efficiency.

Durst Software & Solutions provides smart and easy to use software solutions, including ERP/MIS software (Durst Lift ERP), Web-to-Print solutions (Durst Smart Shop and Smart Editor), Prepress & Production software (Durst Workflow) and Analytics software designed to ensure the complete handling of production data of printers (Durst Analytics).

The Durst Software is modular and flexibly adapts to the customers’ needs – from a stand-alone solution to a fully integrated and revolutionary software eco-system that covers all relevant aspects of the printing business.

By automating tasks, optimizing processes, and facilitating seamless integration between hardware components, the software Durst Workflow enhances the overall efficiency of Vanguard printing operations. This translates into faster turnaround times, increased production capacity, and ultimately, greater customer satisfaction. Moreover, Durst Workflow plays a crucial role in ensuring the consistency and accuracy of printed output. Through advanced color management tools and precise calibration features, printers can maintain uniformity in color reproduction across various print jobs. This enhances the quality of printed materials and reinforces the brand integrity of the print shop’s end clients. Additionally, the software includes an Ink Save module, which requires no special color expertise: its integrated powerful engine automatically calculates the color combination that reduces the amount of ink printed on the substrate. The Ink Save tool adjusts the ink consumption of all colors in the printer and compensates with black to achieve optimal reduction of the total ink consumption. 

Durst Workflow offers Vanguard customers a significant advantage by granting access to advanced functionalities uncommon in this price range segment. This not only enhances the value proposition of Vanguard printers but also sets them apart from competitors offering basic third-party software solutions. It underscores Durst's dedication to providing comprehensive solutions across various market segments and positions Vanguard printers as offering superior value and capabilities compared to its competitors.

In addition to enhancing productivity and print quality, Durst Analyticsprovides valuable insights that enable clients to optimize their printing processes further. By harnessing real-time data and performance metrics, the client can identify areas for improvement, fine-tune its operations, and stay ahead of the competition in a rapidly evolving market landscape.

Ultimately, the partnership between Vanguard Europe and Durst Software & Solutions represents a synergy of innovation and efficiency. By leveraging the advanced software capabilities offered by Durst, Vanguard Europe continues to push the boundaries of digital printing, delivering exceptional results that exceed customer expectations and set new industry standards.

As Vanguard Europe continues its journey of innovation and growth, Durst Software & Solutions will remain its trusted business partner, paving the path for peak performance every step of the way.
