The Flexibility to Move Large Print Files
Printing houses need to ingest, share, and distribute files in various formats. From initial design to the final delivery, files are constantly changing hands for review, editing, and approval.
Large graphics files, brochures, booklets, and many other forms of media simply can’t be transferred quickly, reliably, or securely via physical shipments, FTP, or email. To make matters worse, these traditional file transfer methods lack tracking capabilities, making job tracking difficult and inefficient.

FileCatalyst Helps with Printing Workflows
Printing companies can take in orders from all over the globe, and the process is not always easy. FileCatalyst Workflow allows companies to create custom fields that can collect any information (metadata) such as quantities, sizes, special instructions – or any other information that may be required in the workflow.
Printing companies rely on different talents that may span vast distances, which can make keeping track of assets into a difficult challenge. FileCatalyst Workflow acts as your organization’s central storage location for one or more “web folders” – keeping all of your files organized and managed. Users have remote access (via a web browser) to shared or personal files from anywhere in the world.
Once you have received the order and turned your client’s vision into a reality, the result may be a large project file that is difficult to transfer across traditional TCP/FTP-based file transfer methods. With FileCatalyst, you can send files of any size to any email address at accelerated speeds, up to 10 Gpbs. Users simply click the download link in the email — and the accelerated transfer begins.
When working on projects with customers, the last thing they want is to install software to receive their order. When sending files with FileCatalyst, end users don’t need to download or install any software – all that’s required is an internet connection and a web-browser. Users also have the option to submit files via their smartphone with our FileCatalyst apps for iOS and Android devices.
