06 Aug. 2015


Montreal, Canada (August 06, 2015) – Global Vision, the world leader in the development of innovative proofreading technologies, today announced the release of version 3.0.0 of its award winning print inspection solution, ScanProof.

Intelligent Proofreading

Designed with enhancements that will dramatically ease the challenges that professionals face on a daily basis, ScanProof 3.0.0 features new unified artwork, barcode and Braille QC that will enable users to directly integrate Braille and barcode verifications within inspections thereby saving valuable time and improving productivity.

ScanProof 3.0.0 also introduces Intelligent Proofreading that helps to eliminate false positives by more than 50% by applying logic to identify different elements of the artwork including: Text, artwork, barcode, Braille, background and dielines.

“Anything less than 100% accuracy is not acceptable in regulated industries such as the pharmaceutical, medical device and CPG sectors, so finding a way to ensure 100% accuracy is mandatory,” explained Reuben Malz, President of Global Vision. “The new improvements within ScanProof 3.0.0 enable users to precisely inspect all printed components with confidence, ensuring that no errors exist between the approved artwork and print.”
