Drupa 08 Provides KBA Vast Sales Orders and Capacity Booth Crowd
New KBA print consultation service makes debut
Drupa was also the debut of KBA Complete, the new print consultation service subsidiary. Unlike many other providers, KBA Complete can network all JDF-enabled systems, not just those offered by allied vendors. And it defines networking not merely in terms of JDF links to the presses but as a holistic system encompassing financial accounting, ERP (enterprise resource planning) systems, logistics and distribution. A key post-Drupa project will be to step up the development of RFID-controlled logistics systems for print enterprises. To this end KBA Complete has entered an alliance with Siemens, and is planning to install a pilot RFID-controlled logistics system before the end of the year.
