ROCHESTER, NY—Heidelberg and Formscan Inc. announced they are collaborating to integrate Formscan's verification control products into Heidelberg's Digimaster print systems. The camera-based systems are said to collect job data in real-time and deliver workflow status reports, giving users greater control over document integrity. In a related move, Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) is expanding its technology portfolio to include direct marketing solutions from the Schober Information Group AG (Schober). Providing "intelligent address" data reportedly will be one of the main areas of focus, with Schober assessing addresses in terms of business potential and risks. Other services to be offered include direct market training, analysis of potentially important customers and evaluation of the competition in a given region. (www.heidelberg.com)
