"RR Donnelley has been a long-time enterprise customer of the Solimar Chemistry platform for print file conversions and post-composition enhancements. ReadyPDF is now benefiting us in our pre-press processes as we cleanup and improve PDF files prior to production. I look forward to sharing my PDF optimization challenges and successes on the Customer Advisory Council Transactional Print Panel during their upcoming Solimar Virtual User Conference."

“This particular job was e-delivery for a number of iterations, both internal and third-party. We host and archive 100% of the output and print the content on a color roll press. Pre-ReadyPDF, this application would have a 24-hour turnaround. Using ReadyPDF it takes just 1 hour – the savings are quite incredible!”

“Typically, we saw a 650MB file reduced to just 50MB. Although the ReadyPDF files were smaller, they also contained more content, ensuring there was zero impact on the downstream systems. ReadyPDF also enabled a more streamlined approach, eliminating the need for multiple resources as all files, whether archived or printed, are optimized for print production.”

“The State of Washington has been using Solimar products with our statewide in-plant print and mail operations since 2006. As our customers have shifted their large-scale mailings to PDFs over the years, Rubika has enabled us to optimize workflows and handle specialized production tasks like batching and barcoding in a standard way that would otherwise have to be reinvented by each separate project team. Solimar’s tools have helped us minimize contact points with sensitive documents through automation, and with a growing focus on data security and other compliance issues, there is always more to learn at the Solimar Virtual User Conference in September.”

"After attending Inkjet Summit in 2019, Borns Group migrated from a commercial offset to a digital inkjet press with the Solimar PDF workflow platform as our print optimization and automation solution. We rapidly gained new work and our turnaround times went from days to hours. I'm excited to be one of the newest members on the Customer Advisory Council and look forward to participating in the CAC Direct Mail Panel at the 2020 Solimar Virtual User Conference."

Lee Borns
Vice President

"J&Q has been a long-time customer of Solimar for print transforms and post-composition technology. Rubika has helped us automate our spoilage workflow to go completely lights-out helping in meeting stringent SLAs with lower costs. Excited to share my experiences and learning how other service providers are using ReadyPDF and other Solimar products to conquer their output challenges."

"Mail Communications Group has been using the Solimar product for over 10 years with our biggest changes within the past 5 years. As the Solimar team developed new capabilities we have been able to add new customers into our service family. Looking forward to sharing some of these stories during the upcoming CAC Panel event at the Solimar Virtual Conference."

Shayne Huston
CEO
Mail Communications Group

"When we migrated from cut sheet lasers to the Xerox Rialto, a color inkjet press, our IT team estimated it would take a year to convert our PCL documents to PDF. Solimar was the perfect solution to seamlessly create optimized PDF to drive our press and fleet of printers. I enjoy being on the Advisory Council and look forward to sharing more at the upcoming In-Plant Panel at the Solimar 2020 Virtual User Conference."
