HYBRID Software, the fastest growing software company in the graphic arts sector, has announced record-breaking results from drupa2016. Over 1,200 visitors from 850 companies visited its stand to see demonstrations of the latest innovations in packaging prepress and to run their own live jobs. By the last day of the exhibition the company had taken orders worth more than $2 million (USD) and says it expects to win many more in the coming months.
“HYBRID’s biggest strength is our ability and willingness to listen to customers and act upon their input,” says chairman Guido Van der Schueren. “It’s part of the DNA of the company and is what drives us to innovate in the areas of technology where our customers need it the most. What was so reassuring was that we heard repeatedly from customers throughout drupa2016 that innovation has returned to packaging prepress.
“From this willingness to listen comes a philosophy that is the cornerstone of our company - the three pillars of prepress automation, customer collaboration, and tight integration with customers’ systems and processes. All our products are based on native PDF and industry standards. The feedback from our customers and industry-leading partners is that this strategy and philosophy is making an important difference in the industry.”
Visitors to drupa2016 were able to see the company’s full complement of software solutions, including PACKZ, CLOUDFLOW, and PRINTPLANNER, on the HYBRID stand as well as in the HP hall.
“This was my tenth Drupa!” says Guido Van der Schueren. “During those shows I have seen many milestones in the packaging industry, but this recent exhibition was definitely the most successful I’ve attended. It was also a real turning point for HYBRID Software.”
In September HYBRID Software will demonstrate its prepress innovation to the US market at Labelexpo Americas 2016, and at other events worldwide.
