Fiery VUE Paves the Way for Professional Office Printing

Intuitive, 3D Desktop Application from EFI Makes Office Document Production Easy, Cost-Effective and Environmentally-Friendly

(PresseBox) (Zaventem, Belgium, ) With a goal to reduce the complexity and cost of office printing,EFI(TM) today launched Fiery® VUE, an innovative print application that makes publishing of professionallooking finished documents fast and simple for all office workers. The application is ideal for any functional group across an enterprise including sales, marketing, finance, legal, HR and training.

Fiery VUE takes all the complexity out of producing professional documents. Before printing, any office user can interact with the document onscreen in 3D to sculpt and then preview exactly how the finished document will look. This creates better looking documents, reduces waste and lowers overall cost.

"Fiery VUE will save us two to three hours a day in document prep, with amazing finished results," said Angi Hast, project manager at Company Nurse, a Scottsdale, Ariz. (USA) provider of nurse triage services for workers compensation claims. "We create a lot of booklets, and before Fiery VUE, it was a trialanderror process involving printing a draft, making changes, and printing again. Now, we can quickly and easily import documents from various files, format our booklets, use the preview feature to confirm everything, and print once. This all adds up to huge savings in time and paper."

"Fiery VUE is a gamechanging application from EFI. We believe it will eliminate office workers' ongoing frustration associated with searching for available printers, installing various print drivers or just trying to print a nice looking finished document," said Toby Weiss, general manager and senior vice president of the Fiery division, EFI. "As companies seek solutions to lower costs, speed turnaround times and reduce waste in support of their green initiatives, Fiery VUE enables fast production of professionallooking documents while dramatically improving productivity."

With minimal keystrokes or training, Fiery VUE allows office workers to be more productive, reducing the time and complexity of creating and assembling finished documents. Business owners gain inhouse document control and lower costs, while being assured security, consistent quality and colour accuracy across all departments.

"Fiery VUE is an easy to use application that fills a gap in the tools available today for an office worker to create and produce professionallooking finished documents, with no special training," said Alex Sumarta, director of production software at InfoTrends, the leading worldwide market research and consulting firm for the digital imaging and document solutions industry.

How it Works

Fiery VUE is compatible with Microsoft® Word®, PowerPoint®, Excel®, and Adobe® Acrobat® applications. Users can launch the software as a standalone application or conveniently from within Microsoft Office 2003 or 2007. The Fiery VUE desktop application has a userfriendly interface that visually guides office workers through document layout and production. The powerful application also allows multiple files to be combined into a single document, where finishing options such as stapling, binding and hole punch can be selected.
