Hiflex Succesfully Goes Mobile at Drupa
DÜSSELDORF, GERMANY—07/03/08—Hiflex very successfully debuted its new “Hiflex goes Mobile” capability at DRUPA 2008. This new technology enables users remote access to estimating, CRM and JDF/JMF production status. Anyone with a PDA can now have mobile access to critical information within their Hiflex systems back at the plant. This allows instant, remote creation of quotations, customer visit reports and real-time monitoring of production status while traveling on business or away from the office. “The practical benefits are obvious. The sales representatives of a print facility can immediately respond to and deliver quotation requests to their customers while in the field, using an iPhone and an internet connection”, explains Stefan Reichhart, Managing Director of Hiflex.
MIS, JDF and web2print successfully combined
Hiflex combined the leading edge technology of its JDF certified MIS and web2print solutions on the Hiflex iPhone portal and made critical information and remote capabilities available via the internet. The result was demonstrated live on the iPhone by the international Hiflex team during the show. Beside remote access to functionalities of Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and estimate the demontrations included real-time JMF-feedback from cost centers including progress on the machine, make-readies, good sheets, waste sheets and percentage of job completion. For this the Hiflex server was connected to the live systems at KBA, MBO and Muller Martini’s booths at DRUPA and constantly received JMF-feedback from the production machinery that our partners installed on their respective stands. From the Hiflex iPhone portal, data was then transferred to the iPhone via the internet.
Though Drupa is now past, anybody interested can still have a detailed look at these innovative functionalities at http://www.hiflex.com/iPhone. Phone hardware is not required, just the Safari web-browser. Hiflex Mobile access can also be ported onto other mobile devices such as, i.e. the Blackberry.
