Heidelberg launches new open and independent printing industry platform with Zaikio
Print shops are faced with the challenge of making ever shorter and more varied runs cost-effective. The increasingly complex relationships between these print shops, their customers, and various business partners also need to be managed efficiently. The solution is to establish fully automated, integrated processes across company boundaries that make workflows and transactions between printers, software providers, equipment manufacturers, and suppliers far, far simpler. Around a year after the takeover of cloud software business Crispy Mountain by Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg), the company is launching Zaikio – a new open and independent cloud-based collaboration platform for the printing industry – for this very purpose.
