The label and package printing industry predicts what will be big in 2018
Hybrid Software and Cerm have strengthened their close working relationship with the integration of the Proofscope viewing and approval system with Cerm’s Web4Labels.
Both companies provide specialist software for the label market and last year they formed a partnership to interface Hybrid Software’s productivity tools with Cerm’s MIS system.
Jan Ruysschaert, managing director of Hybrid Software, said: ‘A growing number of label printers around the world use our workflow system Cloudflow and Cerm’s MIS software. The huge synergies resulted in the two companies working together, which created some very exciting opportunities for printers, who increasingly have to automate their entire printing process rather than just pre-press.
‘Success lies in innovation and it is important that we keep developing tools to ensure the most efficient working environment. This is exactly what we have achieved with this latest announcement.’
Cerm managing director Geert Van Damme added: ‘The new direct link means that customers do not need a separate password and they can open the Proofscope viewer via our Web4Labels software. Cerm MIS operators can utilize the Proofscope viewer to have an identical platform to the customer and see exactly what they are seeing. In addition, customers can delegate approval of work to others without the need for complex workflows at the printer’s end.’
Belgium packaging printer Du Caju Printing has become the first customer to integrate the two technologies.
