Esko and Enfocus have confirmed a joint exhibition of their print solutions, which encompass software, platemaking and e-commerce, to name a few.
Wim Fransen, Vice President Global Marketing and Software Product Management at Esko said, ‘Virtual.drupa will provide the perfect forum for us to showcase our next-generation technology developments for the packaging industry. We will be sharing our latest software releases and launching our new ‘Cloud Freedom’ strategy.
‘Moving from onsite server-based software applications to cloud-hosted service as a subscription (‘SaaS’) software models sees a number of benefits for our packaging, labels and wide format prepress and converter customers alike. We will be sharing examples of Esko software solutions that now have both models available and providing insight into the advantages of using the Esko cloud.
‘Notably, virtual.drupa will also be the platform where we will unveil the results of our collaboration with Asahi Photoproducts, which was announced last year. The companies have been working together on the development of a new automated flexo platemaking solution and April 21 sees both companies come together to reveal the breakthrough technology in a live webinar.’
Tomas Van Rossom, General Manager of Enfocus, said, ‘It’s an exciting time for Enfocus and drupa is always a superb opportunity to connect with our customers, old and new. This year we will be unveiling the benefits of BoardingPass, our new software solution which empowers customer facing staff to quickly inspect incoming PDF files for showstopping issues in print.
‘In addition, we will be showcasing Switch, the print automation rebel movement, that delivers an open workflow automation platform, removing the constraints on print professionals who don’t want to adapt to all-in-one, vendor-specific workflow solutions. On top of these launches, we’re demonstrating PitStop Server as an entry level automation solution. By adding our software version updates for PitStop Pro, PitStop Server, Switch and Connect 2021, it’s clear we’ll have a great Enfocus line-up to showcase.’
