Alliance empowers print success

Software Solutions Print Solutions

Eco3 and eProductivity Software (ePS) have announced a strategic partnership that will push automation in print production to the next level. With fully integrated and tailored workflow solutions, this collaboration will set a new benchmark in efficiency, unlocking more opportunities for growth.


The new partnership harnesses pre-press innovation from the two companies to deliver an unparalleled workflow solution, seamlessly incorporating every aspect of the entire production process.


By creating certified end to end workflows, from customer and order acquisition, job and financial management, to production and post production, tailored to the specific needs of each customer, the partnership will empower printers to succeed in a rapidly changing and complex market. With a unified user interface, customers will gain full control over their entire production, thereby enhancing efficiency and productivity across operations.


As an example, the certified workflow allows automated creation of jobs, including very complex versions within Eco3 Apogee from an ePS MIS/ERP platform. It also facilitates the tracking of file receipt and approval in Apogee WebApproval, along with the generation of printing plates, proofs, and digital prints.


‘ePS and Eco3 are fully committed to supporting the printing market to adapt their production environment for growth. This collaborative approach ensures that the end users will have the best possible tools for success at their disposal,’ said Erik Peeters, Eco3 marketing manager software. ‘Our strategic and measured approach enhances product stability and reliability. It also enables us to deliver new automation features and functionalities, keeping pace with evolving market trends and customer demands.’


The ongoing partnership promises to herald a new era of innovation and opportunity over the coming years. Customers can expect a host of future benefits that will elevate their print production to new heights. From enhanced integration capabilities to advanced automation, analytics and insights, the possibilities to add value are limitless.


‘We are excited to partner with Eco3, leveraging our strengths to deliver exceptional value to customers,’ commented Nick Benkovich, vice president, portfolio management and strategic partnerships, ePS. ‘With a shared dedication to aligning priorities, deliveries and development timelines, we aim to create seamless products that prioritise their experience.’


Customers already experiencing the benefits of a combined workflow include Stephens & George, in Wales. ‘We have recently adopted ePS Tharstern as our MIS partner to work alongside Eco3’s Apogee pre-press workflow, and the integration has proved seamless. The JDF capabilities of Tharstern working with Apogee has delivered us a near 100% JDF enabled workflow throughout the whole business,’ said the company’s pre-press manager Jamie Awford.


The new collaboration will be presented at drupa 2024. Eco3 will be located in hall 5/C31, while ePS will be in hall 07A/E03 – both showcasing the potential of the software integration to visitors.
