A setup-and-go solution that’s easy to use — and customise

FreeFlow Core is browser-based and includes EasyStart workflows to guide users through the process of creating and managing workflows, step-by-step. It hides the complexity of individual operations and workflow programming while it provides easy customisation, with an intuitive graphical user interface. The simple drag-and-drop interface means you don?t need a software engineering degree to create workflows. Now anyone can easily manage incoming jobs and get them done in a fraction of the time.

Seamless integration with your current workflows

FreeFlow Core integrates with your current workflows, including web-to-print, order entry, management information systems (MIS) and more. It eliminates manual data entry because it incorporates Manifest Automation from Xerox (MAX) and JMF/XSLT to automate job information.

Whether your organisation is 3 or 300 people, FreeFlow Core offers a highly-productive, end-to-end workflow solution. It?s available as individual modules, so you can easily add more functionality and create customised, integrated solutions.
