“During the Drupa 2016 tradeshow, EFI and Esko announced that they have signed a letter of intent to bring a combined workflow solution to market that will enable companies to produce packaging with a single seamless and integrated workflow.”
“This collaboration will connect EFI Fiery digital front ends (DFEs), Esko workflows, and EFI ERP/MIS solutions to provide a unified production eco-system for packaging companies. In addition, customers using the Esko workflow will be able to prepare jobs once for output and use EFI’s optimisation tools to route them to their Fiery driven digital production devices with a single seamless experience.”
“EFI and Esko intend to develop a unified workflow for digital printing of packaging using EFI’s industry-leading Fiery DFE combined with Esko’s industry-leading workflow automation platform. Commercial printers that want to offer folding carton or label printing to their customers using their digital presses will enjoy the benefits of this powerful solution: a simple and efficient method to get access to the best workflow in the industry without having to make a significant new investment in specialised software. In addition, this combined offering will be integrated to EFI’s industry-leading ERP/MIS and Web-to-Print solutions to provide a seamless end-to-end workflow from design to delivery for commercial print customers.”
“By combining the expertise and technology of two undisputed market leaders, EFI and Esko, we believe together we will offer a great solution for companies that want to enter packaging, as well as those packaging companies that already have an Esko workflow and want to get into digital printing,” said Bernard Zwaenepoel, Senior VP, Software Business, of Esko.
