Presenting GlobalVision 4.1 for Desktop: New Workflows for Print Production

Having previously pulled out all the stops unifying our apps into a single platform, we’re going further and adding to that all-in-one offering. Presenting our latest desktop release: GlobalVision 4.1. Users can now take advantage of the brand-new Job Wizard and other exciting features to streamline inspections to an even greater degree.

A New Workflow for Easy Inspections

We created the new Job Wizard workflow specifically with users in mind. It’s front and center here and promises to simplify inspections for print production and press operators among many others. It’s just a matter of creating a new profile or selecting one of the default options. Essentially individual collections of pre-set parameters, the profiles enable jobs—possibly comprising multiple inspections at once—to be run more efficiently. The Wizard can be set to launch right when the platform loads. It then guides users step by step through inspections, ensuring everyone in the organization follows set processes and standards.

Faster, Stronger, Bigger, and Better

There’s also the matter of file-loading speeds, which have been improved. With specific regard to PDFs, the PDF Viewer functionality from Version 4.0 has been integrated into the new and improved interface. PDFs are now loaded directly into either the Master or Sample panel. You can then make desired separation and layer adjustments right there instead of in a separate window. It’s that easy!

Quality Control with All the Fixin’s

One of our ultimate goals has been to reduce users’ time spent switching between applications. Previously unifying all our apps was a giant leap forward. The integration of the PDF Viewer in this latest version is now following suit. Furthermore, in Version 4.1, you also have the option to scan in files at the push of a button, without a scanner interface popping up. And, when generating and viewing inspection reports, you can launch the platform’s very own Report Viewer instead of your system’s default PDF reader. 

Additional updates include:

  • A new one-to-one action for quicker inspections of press sheets.
  • Support for Code 32 barcodes in the Barcode Inspection app.
  • The addition of Unified English Braille (UEB) to the Braille library.
  • The ability to specify default paths when saving inspection reports or image views.

GlobalVision is consistently looking for more and more ways to improve users’ efficiency. These are just a select few. Overall, GlobalVision 4.1 can best be summarized as another step in the right direction, with more inevitably to come. Have something you want to see in a future update? Let us know here.
