Though the remote proofing option also requires color management software and added technology, such systems offer savings through the elimination of time-consuming back-and-forth adjustments of color matching. Relative adjustments to the files to match colors can be made before actually sending the files to the press. In addition, simulating the press with the proofer reduces the amount of time that the presses are dedicating to printing proofs, and, because the cost of the proofer is a fraction of the cost of a press, this concept allows an increase the “color accurate” proofing capacity.
