Xeikon, which pioneered the first digital color presses, and Prism, a developer of MIS/ERP software products for the graphic arts industry, have entered into a joint referral partnership program. Through the partnership, Xeikon will be able to offer Prism’s management information solutions to key vertical markets, including labels and packaging.
Prism’s offerings for the graphic arts industry scale from entry-level for small organizations to comprehensive offerings for multi-plant businesses. Prism WIN and QTMS are especially relevant for the unique requirements of label converters with installations around the world.
Through bi-directional, real-time communication between Xeikon’s X-800 digital front end and Prism’s MIS software, label converters will now be able to manage mission critical aspects of their business, such as job quoting and costing through production planning, inventory management, materials ordering, sales order processing and financial accounts. As Prism’s offerings can also be integrated with traditional printing technologies, label converters can extend relevant planning measurements to their entire production floor across all of their output devices.
“We are thrilled to enter into this partnership with Prism,” said Michael V. Ring, vice president of sales and chief marketing officer, North American operations.
