Color Management Group to Sell Tucanna Color Solutions in the Americas
SAN JOSE, CA/VILLARREAL, SPAIN—June 22, 2012—The Color Management Group (CMG) is pleased to announce it has entered into an exclusive agreement for North America, and a non-exclusive agreement for South America, to distribute Tucanna state-of-the-art solutions, including the unique and innovative tFlow, PrintControl and RapidCheck. The agreement assigns CMG to sell, promote and service Tucanna products in all markets in the Americas.
Tucanna products received considerable attention at drupa in Düsseldorf, Germany. The revolutionary tFlow was introduced at the beginning of this year, and, in addition to making complete automation available, it is the only solution to address the needs of graphic arts, prepress, digital, analog, packaging and office printing markets. PrintControl and RapidCheck are cutting-edge, user-friendly tools used to calibrate printing devices in accordance to G7, SWOP and ISO standards.
“We are proud to win the Color Management Group as our partner for the American markets,” says Jawdatt Mawassii, who is responsible for business development and strategy at Tucanna. “We have interacted with the Color Management Group though various companies over the years, always with a positive outcome. Their channel management and technical support are of exceptional quality and they have the ability to aid us in establishing and promoting our products in vital markets.
“The invaluable support of the Color Management Group coupled with their unique knowledge of products and the industry are skills that are imperative for our success. We are very excited to see the changes this agreement will bring about,” adds Mawassii.
Considering that dedicated preflight and color management tools are plentiful in today’s market, and that many software packages have recently added preflight and/or color management modules, it is not easy to stand above the crowd. tFlow is the first and only solution that was developed to address complete workflow automation (no need for an XML programmer) – from job submission through conversion to PDF, is easy to use, and offers preflight for print based on a customer's specific needs whether it be G7, SWOP or ISO.
“If someone were to ask me what it is, I would say it’s automated, PDF preflighting, accurate soft-proofing, color management, file submission, email notification, and ink savings software — or you could just say tFlow,” comments Dan Gillespie, director of technical services for the Color Management Group.
“My technical team advised me of the power of t-Flow last summer. I was able to see the product for myself during our annual meeting in Phoenix preceding the PIA/GATF Color Management conference last December,” states Lida Jalali Marschke, CEO and Founder of the Color Management Group.
“tFlow is one of the most innovative products I have seen in the thirty years I have been in the graphic arts industry. You could liken it to the way Steve Jobs simplified and focused Apple on a few good products and a specific market. After witnessing how attendees reacted to t-Flow during the conference, I fully recognized the value and power of this dynamic new product. I understood immediately why my staff was ‘chomping at the bit’ to make it available to all CMG member companies and their customers
