High volumes and fast turn time requirements mean workflow is critical to placing and fulfilling design orders. Many companies have existing, legacy systems for managing their production operations and Affinity Express integrates our processes and team members seamlessly.
For those clients looking to transform their operations, Affinity Express offers two cloud-based workflow tools to manage our services: AESB and IDEA. Both were developed by Affinity Express to serve the specific needs of our clients and the industries we serve. Plus, we constantly update and improve this technology at no additional cost.
Affinity Express Service Bureau (AESB)
News publishers are moving away from the legacy approach of purchasing/licensing and hosting systems, software and hardware internally to the adoption of cloud-based options across multiple functions. We launched our cloud-based AESB to support print advertising production several years ago and are releasing a new version that meets the evolving needs and expectations of news publishing clients. It is the only workflow system for ordering, proofing, customer approvals and delivery that handles a full range of digital and print products, including those produced outside the system.

Interactive Digital Entry Assistant (IDEA)
If you have high volumes for a range of digital or print advertising and marketing orders, you know that interfacing with providers by phone, email or fax just doesn’t work. That’s why Affinity Express created IDEA. Clients use IDEA not just for placing orders anytime from anywhere, but also to submit quote requests, upload finished work, store important customer files, check the status of orders and communicate with the design team.
