Hybrid has sold its 2,500th Packz license, its native PDF editor for labels and packaging, after signing a major partnership deal with France-based Autajon Group.
Autajon is one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of folding cartons, set-up boxes, labels and point-of-sale products. The group consists of 36 companies operating from eight countries split across Europe, America and China.
The group supplies markets ranging from perfumes, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, to wines, spirits, confectionery and food specialities. Customers include small, local businesses and prestigious international brands.
The order will result in Autajon implementing almost 100 Packz licenses across its production sites worldwide.
Packz has been chosen by Autajon for its ease of use, performance, openness and adaptability to the 4.0 environment, according to Hybrid Software. In addition, the ability to easily integrate Packz with existing pre-press technology and operate efficiently within any PDF scenario was particularly appealing. The new partnership will focus on common application-specific developments, which will be implemented in future product releases and updates from Hybrid Software.
Guido Van der Schueren, chairman of the board of Hybrid Software said: ‘We are very proud that this order from Autajon has enabled us to achieve such an important milestone in Hybrid Software’s history, the sale of the 2,500th license of Packz.
‘Autajon has a highly regarded reputation, renowned around the world for its high-end and high-quality printing business.
‘We are confident that this new partnership will help to push forward the speed of development of our software to even higher levels, and lead to even greater productivity for our customers. I have known Autajon personally for over 30 years and have watched with interest its significant global growth. I’m delighted to now be accompanying it with my teams of software developers and technicians. Autajon and Hybrid Software have a common DNA that has made us both pioneers in our fields; we listen to customers and then tailor our service and products to meet their requirements precisely.’
