To support upgrades for Schawk customers, Vproof provides a clean and intuitive user interface, superior PDF file compatibility and automated migration of notes, approvals and revisions from legacy online proofing systems.

The Vproof API is part of Viki's Vsuite platform of licensable software components. "We are continually evolving our Vsuite components," added Mirmotahari, "and we're excited about future collaboration with Schawk. Our ability to add modules and features quickly through agile software methodology, coupled with Schawk's knowledge of the market requirements, creates a powerful partnership."
