ArtiosCAD and Esko Automated Quality Assurance win at EDP Awards ceremony

143

Two Esko solutions were among the winners at the recently concluded European Digital Press Association (EDP) Awards ceremony held during FESPA 2017. Esko’s ArtiosCAD and Esko Automated Quality Assurance were awarded among 31 winners chosen from more than 150 entries.

Esko’s ArtiosCAD Display Store is a comprehensive online library of design templates using basic parameters. The online shop offers a wide selection of designs requiring only size adjustment to be production-ready. This removes both time and potential error out of the design process. It is supported by ArtiosCAD.net. By offering these designs, Esko simplifies the process of display making and significantly increases productivity in the production of visual communications.

The Automated Quality Assurance is a custom solution of automated quality control tools developed by Esko and industry partners such as GlobalVision. It is a set of strong features that automatically inspects and compares files. Via catching and highlighting problems with spelling, text, barcodes, braille, colors and more packaging-specific items in the prepress workflow, it improves the throughput of quality control.

Both awards were presented to Bruno Vermeulen, EMEA marketing director at Esko, who said, “These awards are a great endorsement of our software and workflow solutions. We aim to simplify the way our customers work and develop our offering to support easier, faster and error free operations. It is really great to see our solutions once more recognized by the EDP as industry-leading.”

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
