How JDF Certification Gives Your Products a Competitive Advantage
Q: What are the advantages of obtaining a JDF Certification for my products?
MB: To your customers, a JDF Certification is a unique, trusted symbol that your product is high quality and easy to install in their facility and integrate with their current systems as well as through other certified products. This has been a common discussion point during many of our Automation Solutions Network meetings where the printers are looking for that efficient installation and added value from automation.
It also shows that the companies receiving the JDF Certification are fully committed to open standards and specifications and looking for the best possible interoperability between systems. The ability of the certified product to connect with existing systems will save on labor and development costs, as much of the functionality is known to work. It is then time to concentrate on those enhancements that differentiate the product combinations.
Overall, obtaining a JDF Certification from Printing Industries of America and CIP4 is a statement that you are dedicated to improving the company’s workflow, and with the new program in particular, their wide-format digital workflow and profitability. You gain an advantage on your competition and status as a cutting-edge company.
