Muller Martini, SoftSolutions and Hiflex Collaborate on Open Integration Solution
“We recognize Muller Martini as a global leader in print production and welcome this opportunity to collaborate on an open integration platform that will serve the print market. We’ve worked with Muller Martini engineers in Switzerland and with HIFLEX MIS software experts in Europe and the USA to quickly demonstrate the benefits of JDF Standards for automating machine setups, automating data collection directly from MIS and equipment, and enabling real-time visibility on performance for better cost controls. This project is a testimony to the fact that JDF integration is ready for prime time,” said Jay Foster, President, SoftSolutions, Inc.
“We’re very excited about this strategic initiative between Muller Martini, SoftSolutions and HIFLEX,” added Gary Marron, President and CEO, Hiflex Corporation of North America. “The automated digital workflow solution we’ve created as a team provides a mechanism for true JDF integration adhering to an open standard, effectively eliminating the ‘islands’ that exist between administration, estimating, order entry and production…resulting in enhanced functionality and higher profit potential for printing and binding companies.”
