Schawk Selects Viki Solutions as Online Proofing Provider

Viki Solutions, developer of online proofing and enterprise solutions for the printing, publishing and packaging industries, announces that Schawk Digital Solutions has successfully integrated their BLUE brand management solution with the Vproof online proofing system. BLUE is a fully integrated enterprise solution delivering web-based digital asset management, workflow management and graphics lifecycle management. Vproof provides enterprise-class performance, scalability and security with a rich Application Programming Interface (API) for extensive control over the approval process, revision cycle and user experience.

"We chose Viki Solutions as our online proofing provider due to their depth of experience and vision for the future of proofing and workflow systems," said Stephen Kaufman, Chief Technology Officer of Schawk. "The Viki management, development and support teams have been highly responsive to our needs," continued Kaufman, "and we look forward to working with Viki on a number of fronts related to workflow systems and to building the highest possible customer value into our solutions."

"Schawk is a world leader in brand management solutions," said Afshin Mirmotahari, Chief Executive Officer of Viki Solutions, "and we're honored that they selected Vproof to meet their online proofing needs. We value our close working relationship with the Schawk product development team, which allows us to meet the specific needs of their customers." To support upgrades for Schawk customers, Vproof provides a clean and intuitive user interface, superior PDF file compatibility and automated migration of notes, approvals and revisions from legacy online proofing systems.

The Vproof API is part of Viki's Vsuite platform of licensable software components. "We are continually evolving our Vsuite components," added Mirmotahari, "and we're excited about future collaboration with Schawk. Our ability to add modules and features quickly through agile software methodology, coupled with Schawk's knowledge of the market requirements, creates a powerful partnership."
