Polkadots Software signs ECI Graphics as NEWSflo Distributor

Press release from the issuing company

Montreal, Canada: May 2, 2007, Polkadots Software Inc., a leading prepress workflow developer, specializing in database driven workflow automation for Harlequin RIP technology announces the signing of ECI Graphics as the NEWSflo distributor for Mexico and Central America. ECI Graphics is the Dainippon Screen distributor for the Mexican newspaper market and needed a complete CtP production workflow to compliment their Screen CtP offering. David Alonso, Marketing Director at ECI says, “This is an outstanding solution for our local newspapers, it’s reliable, easy to use and affordable to most of our customers. We have the perfect combination with Polkadots and Screen” Polkadots Software released NEWSflo in 2004 as the only newspaper production workflow on the market to bring the digital integrity of true Rip Once Output Many (ROOM) to all levels of newspaper production: Ad-Makeup, Page-Makeup, and final Page-Pairing. NEWSflo still guarantees that the printed version will always match the proof – whether it is a web based pixel-on-demand soft proof or a calibrated hard copy proof printed directly on newsprint. NEWSFlo accomplishes all of this while maintaining a complete PDF workflow for Internet and archive production purposes. “We know that ECI is a well respected leader in bringing industry solutions to the Mexican market.” notes Robert Dumas, VP Marketing at Polkadots Software, “As the Screen distributor it made perfect sense for them to distribute NEWSflo as the best workflow to optimize the performance of the CtP. Having worked with ECI over the past 2 years, we recognize ECI’s commitment to the market and unique ability to sell and support our solutions.” ECI has been a supplier to the Mexican Graphic Arts Market for 15 years and is well known as a digital color workflow supplier.
