Mike Rottenborn, President and CEO of Hybrid Integration, commented, "With so much interest and activity in web-to-print solutions today, we wanted to take the show on the road to meet with as many printing and packaging companies as possible.  The primary objective of our seminar series is to present practical solutions for our clients' web-to-print needs including web portals and digital storefronts to attract and retain customers, customized job ticketing with workflow and MIS integration, data-driven automation from web to printing and fulfillment and estimating for large format and digital print, variable data, and print management."

Rottenborn further stated, "For years, printing companies have been investing in state-of-the-art technology and have acquired MIS and ERP systems, databases, workflows, and equipment, but unfortunately, few of these systems can communicate with each other. Printers need to grab a competitive edge by running a more efficient shop with fewer errors. Manual entry should be reduced to a single effort. All printing company technology investments should share information and this starts at the web portal, the printers' face to their customers."

Hybrid Integration can automate both traditional and digital workflows. Their Job Management System (JMS) technology provides a common digital architecture for the publication, commercial print, tag and label, packaging, sign and display markets. Hybrid Integration addresses the entire production workflow, from on-line ordering to delivery, and can integrate with many legacy databases and MIS/ERP systems.

A leading industry publication further explained the company's strategy by writing, "Hybrid Integration brings a Web 2.0 middleware approach designed to connect the dots among MIS systems, web portals, financial systems, and prepress, proofing and production workflows, through to fulfillment and shipping."

The following high-performance print management software solutions will be demonstrated:

JMS 3.0
The Job Management System (JMS 3.0) is a middleware integration platform that drives and powers Hybrid's other products and options, and facilitates integration with each printer's legacy systems. JMS is an end-to-end integration software which can establish connections with numerous data sources including: ERP, MIS, SQL, Oracle, Web Services, Prepress Workflows, XML, JDF, JMF, Web Forms and Email Input. JMS can incorporate data from all of these sources as input to custom web portals and job tickets.

GoPrint is a print management web portal for printers and their customers that is easy to deploy, customize, and support. It offers a job database with order tracking and history. GoPrint provides customer and operator access via any web browser and file upload and download to replace traditional FTP servers. It also has an online CSR with inventory and order status. Options include a digital web-to-print storefront, variable data printing, custom estimating for large format and signage applications, digital asset management, and more.

GoProof is a soft proof viewing and collaboration tool that offers file annotation and approval. It supports PDF, raster, 1-bit and native files, and has seamless integration with the GoPrint portal. The combination of GoPrint and GoProof provides full-featured project management capability for printers and their customers, with a high level of security and access control.

GoSign is a standalone production control system for large format printers. The sign and display market requires a specialized set of production and finishing parameters, and it is difficult to accurately estimate these jobs with conventional MIS systems.  GoSign helps get these variables under control and can be customized for all types of large format production.

GoTicket is a customizable job ticket for printers. Each customer, product type and printing process has a unique set of parameters. GoTicket (powered by JMS) has a dynamic ticketing structure which allows the user to add all the pertinent fields and publish it as an online job ticket. GoTicket can be auto-populated from MIS, and can link to any workflow for a high level of prepress automation using industry standards including JDF, JMF, and XML.

Customer MIS/ERP features that can be integrated include estimating, billing, inventory and scheduling. Supported third-party systems include EskoArtwork Nexus, Odystar, and Backstage; Dalim; Pageflex; Enfocus, and many others.
