  6. 6. 6 Precomposition is becoming prehistoric. One of the greatest impacts the FreeFlow® VI Suite can make on your operation is achieved through the revolutionary dynamic document construction method of document composition. Example of 20,000 record variable data job Increase speed across your entire production floor. More personalised jobs, more revenue. In a traditional Variable Data Print (VDP) workflow, a design template is created and each unique page is composed. Finally, the resultant file is sent to the printer where it is RIPed and then printed. As an example, consider a 20,000 page job. Each page is composed individually, so after more than an hour, you have a huge file to move to the printer, putting a strain on your network resources. Once the file is transmitted, that same huge file has to be processed and printed. This can be time-consuming, difficult and costly when multiple servers are added to speed things up. With the FreeFlow VI Suite, you simply send your design template and variable data to the printer. VI Compose constructs each page and printing starts in minutes. There is no need to compose the individual pages before sending to the printer. Traditional VDP workflow 20,000 pages 20,000 pages 20,000 pages 20,000 pages Design Compose Send to Print RIP Print VDP workflow with Xerox® FreeFlow VI Compose 1 page + data 1 page + data 20,000 pages Design Send to Print Compose on the fly and RIP Print Total time with precomposition = 90 minutes to get file to the print engine Total time with no precomposition = 4 minutes to get file to the print engine What would saving 86 minutes on a job mean to your business?
