ScenicSoft and CreoScitex Announce New OEM Agreement
Press release from the issuing company
Lynnwood, Washington, September 12, 2001- ScenicSoft and CreoScitex announce that they are expanding their existing OEM relationship. With the new agreement, CreoScitex will offer both Preps and Pandora(tm) for use with their workflow solutions.
As a result of the new OEM agreement, CreoScitex will offer a single version of Preps that can be used interchangeably in Brisque(tm), Prinergy and iMPAct(tm) workflows, facilitating the CreoScitex product integration strategy.
"This new OEM agreement is a logical extension of a long, successful, and thriving cooperation between CreoScitex and ScenicSoft," said Erik Smith, president of ScenicSoft. "Scitex and Creo(tm) were among our first OEM business partners, and the relationships with both organizations have prospered ever since. When the two companies merged to become CreoScitex, the ScenicSoft relationship was one of the obvious synergies. Our regular interactions highlighted that CreoScitex and ScenicSoft shared a common objective: to continuously enhance the capabilities of our existing solutions, and offer new, innovative, and cost-effective technology for the packaging segment of the print industry."
With the new agreement, CreoScitex will now offer ScenicSoft's Pandora as part of their workflow offerings for packaging and label printers. "As the first and only step-and-repeat packaging program to offer a native PDF-based solution, designed and built to address the specific needs and requirements of packaging and label printers, Pandora perfectly matches the CreoScitex philosophy," explains Bob Kutschke, CreoScitex director for packaging workflow products. "PDF has many advantages for consumer product companies and their packaging printers/converters and tradeshops. For the first time, the concept of a digital master is reality - the file you design, trap, step, proof, and approve is the actual file that goes to plate. PDF saves time and increases reliability since there is no need to translate file formats and risk unintended changes." The flexibility of the PDF format, compared to traditional proprietary formats, allows packaging printers to utilize a variety of tools for editing, viewing, and exchanging digital one-ups.
