Hiflex Recognized for Contribution to Clemson University
Samuel Ingram, Professor and Department Chair of Clemson's Graphic Communications Department added "Our program and students have benefited from working with real production tools to solve problems both common to and as complex as those in the industry. With the collaboration of industry partners, students and faculty are paving the digital dirt road for print in the 21st century. Hiflex MIS was chosen by Clemson as we view this system to have some of the most advanced JDF integration capabilities available, allowing us to teach our students the cutting edge and best prepare them for the future."
Dr. John Leininger actively searched for an MIS system, using a variety of benchmarks to decide which MIS would be the best to teach his students on. At the top of his list of criteria was the requirement for a technologically advanced system with boundless integration potential via JDF compatibility. "I don't think there is any doubt that the future of virtually any viable printing company, whether they are digital, conventional litho, or for that matter, flexography or gravure, is going to have to be dealing with JDF. This means they are going to need a viable MIS system that will interface with other JDF compatible software and equipment."
"I've been a judge of the CIP4 CIPPI awards for the last 4 years and as I read the award applications, I kept seeing Hiflex users come up, receiving the top awards every time. Not just in one location either, the winners seemed to be from all over the world." HIFLEX customers have won 15 of the distinguished CIP4 CIPPI trophies since the awards inception in 2005. As a leader in JDF technology, and having the most customer confirmed JDF connections on the JDF roadmap, Hiflex went above and beyond Dr. Leininger's criteria to become the premier choice for an MIS system at Clemson.
