ppi Media, the well-known publishing system and newspaper production software company, has spawned a new company called ppi 3nxt. Ppi 3nxt will be a service provider specializing in digitization services for small and medium-sized enterprises. 

The optimization of IT processes and the advancement of digitization strategies are some of the most critical tasks facing small and medium-sized companies in Germany. ppi Media provides providing publishing houses with automated workflows and digitization processes and has done so for the past 35 years. Now it has decided to accelerate this development by creating a new service provider company.

ppi n3xt combines the core skills and proven infrastructure of ppi Media with the agility of startups to provide SMEs in all sectors with quick, competent and targeted support to their digitization strategy. Some of the services offered by ppi n3xt include consulting and workshops, the development and programming of tailored software solutions, and the design of integration solutions. 

“Founding ppi n3xt was a logical step,” says Manuel Scheyda, the managing director of ppi n3xt and ppi Media. “The Digital Services department at ppi Media has been offering support to several companies outside the publishing world for many years, including businesses in the beverage and pharmaceutical industries. We thought it was time to create a unique profile and image for the services we offer to SMEs – that’s what ppi n3xt is all about.”

Dr. Hauke Berndt, who is also the managing director of ppi Media, adds, “ppi n3xt simply gives us an unbeatable advantage over most other companies that offer digitization services. The company is the product of 35 years of experience in software development, consulting, and project management. We’re the masters of prototyping, UX/UI design, process digitization, and interface design.” 

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
