Automation Engine Connect, a toolkit allowing integration from third party products to an Esko workflow, has received a 2015 Printing Industries of America InterTech™ Technology Award.
Since 1978, the InterTech™ Technology Awards have honoured the development of technologies predicted to have a major impact on the graphic arts and related industries. More than 80% of technologies that receive an award experience continued commercial success in the marketplace.
This is the eighth InterTech award an Esko solution has received over the past ten years. Other recipients include a wide variety of technologies: Esko WebCenter (2006), Esko DeskPack 3-dX (2007), Esko Neo (2008), Esko Studio Toolkit for Shrink Sleeves (2011), i-cut Suite (2012), Full HD Flexo (2014) and Equinox (2014).
‘We are thrilled to receive an InterTech award from Printing Industries of America this year. Esko has a legacy of investing a much higher portion of our budget into R&D than the industry average. We believe in innovation as a means to help our customers conduct their jobs more easily, productively and profitably. Automation Engine Connect is certainly an example of creating software technology to help our customers design complete, more efficient workflows,’ remarked Udo Panenka, Esko President. ‘We understand that it is important for our workflow systems to communicate with third party systems. Similarly, we listen to our customers’ challenges, and strive to build more effective solutions for them. That is the ultimate reward for us.’
