Global Graphics has extended its existing agreement with HYBRID Software, the developers of productivity tools for the graphic arts industry, to make the entire Hybrid product range available to printer manufacturers and end users in the Asia Pacific market.
Global Graphics is also establishing a distribution channel in Japan for PACKZ, Hybrid’s native PDF editor, and CLOUDFLOW, its Native PDF enterprise workflow, via its Tokyo operation Global Graphics KK.
Yoshiyuki Hagiwara, Representative Director of Global Graphics KK says, “We welcome this extension of our agreement. We can now offer a complementary suite of software that is proving very attractive to OEMs and to packaging printers. They can licence CLOUDFLOW, the Harlequin RIP®, and PACKZ, each tuned to their particular application and environment.”
“Due to the interest in HYBRID Software – which provides a complete set of prepress, editing and quality assurance functions – we also aim to have a distribution network set up very shortly so that we can resell these tools to print service providers.”
