(September 09, 2008) Kempenfelt Graphics Group, a 30-year old leader in modern sheet-fed printing has invested in Technique's Management Information System (MIS). The Technique MIS suite of applications will be used for everything from estimating, through order management, scheduling, inventory management, real-time shop floor data collection and job costing. In addition, Technique's MIS will be integrated with the XMPie web-to-print platform as well as Agfa's :Apogee series of workflow products.
"Over the last year, Technique has expanded its support for sheet-fed printing dramatically. Our integration with Agfa's :Apogee series of products is second to none, so Kempenfelt Graphic Group is a great fit for us" states Mark Anderson, Chief Operating Officer, Technique Inc.
Kempenfelt's President, Mike Suter commented "We looked at several MIS products, and felt that Technique's technology was the most up to date. Technique is Agfa's official MIS partner and their combined level of JDF integration with :Apogee Portal and :Apogee Pre-press will certainly enhance our ability to serve our customers. Being able to integrate our web-to-print orders will streamline our production dramatically and remove a lot of unnecessary manual steps in the order management and fulfillment process"
