DevZeroG appoints Chromaticity as exclusive North American distributor
Press release from the issuing company
Grand Rapids, MI, USA; London, UK, 16 July 2007 – DevZeroG, the PDF workflow and file transfer solutions provider for the worldwide graphic arts and print industries, has appointed Chromaticity as the exclusive distributor for North America. Chromaticity will bring both DevZeroG PrintSure and DevZeroG nVerge to the US and Canada through its network of graphic arts dealers and partners effective immediately.
In the USA, DevZeroG already has several clients and has been working with the main industry standards body PIA/GATF for the last two years and has seen easy integration with many of the industry-leading CTP, Rip and workflow providers. PrintSure was successfully integrated with Agfa Apogee, Heidelberg PrintReady and Xerox FreeFlow MakeReady, demonstrating how the system can be used as a centralized job receipt and routing system in a W2P (Web to Print) environment. Now the North American market is ready t
o take advantage of this validated technology, following the 500+ clients in Europe and Asia.
DevZeroG PrintSure is a web-to-print solution that connects the creative sector with the production sector by providing dual web browser functionality and desktop client software and integrated into one solution QA, automatic error correction, review, collection of administrative data, file transfer, notification and tracking into one seamless process.
DevZeroG nVerge offers music, video, advertising, publishing, print and creative industries the ability to securely and receive or distribute large files, saving time and money though robust, automated and secure data transfer capabilities. Transfer is managed in real-time, is traceable end-to-end and nVerge will automatically resume from the point of failure in the event of connection or power failure.
Says Michael Dewhirst, DevZeroG CEO: "The US and Canada are an enormous opportunity for us, and Chromaticity is well positioned to bring our innovative technology to their well established graphic arts, photo, wide format and digital printing channels. Several key players in the US, who have already been using the product in critical production processes, have said how the solutions have already paid in just a few months. The technology will be on show at GraphExpo 2007 this September in Chicago."
Says Ian Mackenzie, VP of Marketing at Chromaticity: "Our network of Graphic Arts dealers in North America do an amazing job with Rips, Color Management, Media and Imaging products today. All of their clients are seeking ways to maximize profitability daily to drive output and facilitate communication with the end users. Web submission, file transmission and digital file QA are some of the crucial areas that can help drive higher profits while increasing end user satisfaction. We love the products from DevZeroG because they hit the hot points in all verticals of this industry - Proofing, Wide Format, Publishing, Agencies and Commercial Print. DevZeroG has brought to market an enterprise class set of workflow communication tools at a desktop price point. Chromaticity is proud to be the exclusive North American partner for this exciting new initiative."
This marks a new chapter in the history of DevZeroG and both companies view the new relationship to have perfect timing and enormous potential. Chromaticity and DevZeroG will be showcasing these products throughout the summer and at GraphExpo and SGIA in the fall. Dealers will be selected and trained this summer.
