Pageflex, a division of Bitstream Inc. and a leading developer of enterprise variable publishing and web-to-print solutions, announced the successful conclusion of the 2011 Pageflex User Conference, held last week at the Seaport Conference Center in Boston.
Wide- and grand-format printers really stood out around the show floor, with the size of some devices giving them the impression of being the new “heavy iron” in the industry.

Pageflex has announced that a year after acquiring the iWay platform and customer base, and after management changes, the organization has addressed performance issues with the iWay product, reaffirmed its commitment to supporting customers, and defined its vision for the future.
