Press release from the issuing company

MUNICH, GERMANY – PerfectPattern today announced that Kodak has integrated the sPrint One technology developed by PerfectPattern into its PRINERGY Cloud Services. Based on innovative algorithms and leveraging artificial intelligence, sPrint One makes the planning of print jobs a snap, combining capacity planning and sheet optimization. The launch of the new PRINERGY offering called “Dynamic Print Planning is the result of a strategic partnership Kodak and PerfectPattern entered mid last year.

PerfectPattern's sPrint One technology is the basis of the Dynamic Print Planning capabilities offered by Kodak's PRINERGY Cloud Services.
 
sPrint One is the most modern solution for dynamic print planning and sheet optimization. Customers of the PRINERGY Cloud Services now benefit from the automated creation of a detailed manufacturing plan and a cost optimized set of print ready production layouts – seamlessly integrated in the PRINERGY Workflow.

During the fully automated planning of the print jobs, all influencing factors as well as the complexity of their relationships – including printing machine, material, color, costs, deadlines and much more – are taken into account by sPrint One.

“What previously took hours of mostly manual work can now be done in a few moments,” says Robert Meissner, PerfectPattern’s s Managing Director Product Management. “This enables printing houses of any size to bring efficiency and quality to an unmatched level.” According to Meissner, sPrint One makes it very easy and efficient to calculate large job pools. It also provides the flexibility to respond quickly to changing production requirements.

“PerfectPattern distributes its sPrint One technology exclusively through technology and sales partners,” says Fabian Rüchardt, Managing Director Business Development at PerfectPattern. “We are very pleased that with Kodak we have found one of the leading providers of solutions for the printing industry as our first global partner.”

“The industry is moving toward smaller, more frequent print runs which create margin and delivery challenges for print service providers,” said Allan Brown, Vice President and General Manager of Kodak’s Unified Workflow Solutions. “The PRINERGY Cloud Services new Dynamic Print Planning capabilities provide them to produce a greater number of orders with the same resources. By eliminating potential human errors from the project planning process, this offering can reduce 40% of the labor costs per project and dramatically increase an operation’s agility.”
