  • A new option - Flux Label Impose - provides an automated label workflow for the Konica Minolta label printers and a convenient way to personalise labels. Valuable savings on label substrates, the ability to saving imposition templates and enhanced VDP content from CSV files as text, barcode and QR code are all among the benefits.
  • A new exclusive feature for AccurioPro Flux Ultimate is a redesigned login page that enables individual content and the ability to create an online shop. 
  • Flux Essential has new options - Flux Multi Seat and Flux Preflight Pro - and access is now available from another PC or Mac.
