The two Esko solutions —ArtiosCAD and Esko Automated Quality Assurance — were awarded among 31 winners chosen from more than 150 entries.
The EDP aims to better assist the technology-appliers to find the right solution for their applications. “The awards honor the best developments in print production tools, software developments, substrates, inks, materials and finishing systems,” Klaus-Peter Nicolay, president, EDP, said.
Esko’s ArtiosCAD Display Store is a comprehensive online library of tried-and-tested 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.
Esko’s 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 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.
Vermeulen 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.”
