Product information

Quality control across the entire workflow

Files are frequently changed as they go through rounds of approval, and move along the printing process. Errors often slip through undetected. This platform will help you manage all your quality control from a single source and catch any errors before they go to print.

How it works?

  1. Compare two files: Global Vision automatically compares your working file to a previously approved file.
  2. Inspect for errors: Any differences between the two files are flagged by Global Vision.
  3. Approve inspections: Results are generated into a report where you can sort through the differences and decide which are errors to be corrected

Text inspection

Compare the copy in a text document to the copy in a PDF file in seconds, regardless of the language. Learn more

Graphics inspection

Compare digital artwork files and proofs pixel by pixel for inconsistencies. Learn more

Print inspection
