ASHLAND, NY—May 21, 2008—Hiflex Corp. of North America, developer of management information system (MIS) software solutions specifically for print and media, will feature its powerful, networked production solutions at DRUPA 2008.
With live demonstrations throughout the day on Stand 9D44, HIFLEX will present HIFLEX MIS with comprehensive JDF/JMF connectivity to ten systems of well-known pre-press, press and post-press system suppliers in the print and media industry.
The demonstrations will take place in a show theatre with three large screens, each displaying a different integrated system.
