iQIP® and CGS ORIS start cooperation
Hainburg/Munich, Germany (October 27, 2021) – Connecting what adds in combination a higher value for customers: This is the main aim of the new partnership between the iQIP® GmbH & Co. KG and CGS ORIS.
From now on, the team at iQIP® will integrate the product portfolio of CGS ORIS in its consulting and sales activities. For both software companies, the focus is on optimizing and increasing the efficiency of processes and results for print service providers and their customers.
"The extensive portfolio of CGS ORIS fits seamlessly into the 'smart quality hub' concept of iQIP®. Through this cooperation, we can provide our customers a complete package of tools from data optimization, brand color communication, all the way to quality control. We are convinced that our current and future customers will massively benefit from this partnership because we consider CGS ORIS´s software to be one of the highest quality color management tools in the market. The team behind is innovative, responsive and reliable. Therefore, we are very much looking forward to this cooperation", iQIP’s CEO Stefan Spengler points out.
"In addition to the match between our solutions in terms of content, this partnership also demonstrates very well how beneficial it is to be able to combine software from different manufacturers in an uncomplicated manner - in other words, to actually provide open systems with which users get the maximum out", emphasizes Bernd Rückert, CEO of CGS ORIS.
"Recently, we have often spoken to customers using software that can only be combined with products from the same manufacturer. However, many users were not aware of this at the time of purchase and want to decide independently and put together individually what suits them best and their specific requirements," he sums up. "But to do that, the systems have to be open and able to communicate with each other."
Due to the advancing digitalization, an easy and fast integrability of software tools into existing infrastructures has become more and more important. Today, the color experts at CGS ORIS are also increasingly acting as "color consultants", advising on the optimization and automation of workflows and putting together holistic solutions for managing and optimizing color in all aspects of the printing process.
iQIP®, on his part, has undergone a complete overhaul. Previously, Stefan Spengler's company was known as impakt-medien. But in 2021, the Munich-based company did not only present new software features, they launched their completely new website (iqip.org) and changed also their company name.
"Already in the past, we were perceived as the iQIP® team," reports Spengler. "With the harmonization of company and product name, we´ve created a clear brand recognition value and facilitated our brand communication," he classifies the step.
iQIP® has been on the market as Print Quality Cloud since 2010 and was thus a technological pioneer at a time when other companies were still relying on desktop applications. As a central hub for communication and quality management, the company combines printer and print buyers in the cloud. With its intelligent evaluation algorithm, iQIP® provides a reliable quality metric that serves as a central variable for all stakeholders.
iQIP GmbH & Co KG (previously known as impakt-medien) based in the south of Munich has been established on the market for more than 10 years in the field of print production quality management. In 2011, the team was awarded 3rd place in the "PrintStars" innovation prize for its innovative iQIP® cloud software. The Print Quality Cloud is used by brands such as REWE Group, COOP Switzerland and Wort & Bild Verlag and their pool print shops to increase efficiency and centralize communication. In addition, the iQIP® team of experts supports its customers with first-class color management services and consulting. For detailed information on iQIP®, please visit www.iqip.org.
