Schreiner Group And Esko Form Workflow Optimisation Partnership


The companies will develop an optimised prepress-workflow in a fast-paced and complex production environment.

Schreiner Group’s customers include telecommunications businesses, banks and government agencies. Its product portfolio is comprised of innovative specialty labels, including self-adhesive functional parts, RFID labels, printed electronics and security solutions. The Schreiner Group has been an Esko customer for around 15 years and has high confidence in Esko’s products, services and staff.

Markus Petratschek, Schreiner Group’s Head of Prepress said, ‘Recently, we had been searching for a better collaboration and communication tool and wanted something for internal use, but also to help us communicate more effectively externally. We wanted to be able to keep the internal team up to date on our own communication, as well as project planning and status. Further, we also wanted to allow external parties to see the latest updates on the latter. It ensures up to the moment transparency, which keeps clients fully informed.

The Schreiner Group chose Esko WebCentre to meet these challenges. WebCentre manages packaging production, approval and project life cycle. From specification and execution to design and content management, it makes easy work of handling, classifying and organising all packaging assets.’

He continued, ‘We needed a solution that could easily be customised to our business and be integrated with our existing IT systems. WebCentre offered smooth and simple installation.’

Other solutions the company has in place from Esko include ArtPro, a packaging preproduction editor offering dedicated tools that reduces cost and increases efficiency of packaging prepress software. It also has DeskPack, a collection of packaging prepress plugins for Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop that fit any prepress environment and Automation Engine, a modular workflow server for prepress workflow automation that is easy to set up and operate, reduces error and increases efficiency. It also has a CDI Spark for the in-house production of flexo plates. ‘Esko offers a complete solution and a future oriented tool,’ Petratschek added. ‘The products can easily be customised to exactly fit our process workflow. We also work closely with the Esko experts who are behind the product to get the most from the development process. This collaboration benefits both organisations and is a key element of our close partnership.’
