Durst has chosen Four Pees as a key integration partner for its Software & Solutions division, which will help integrate software products such as Durst Workflow or Durst Smart Shop at its clients.

Durst founded its Software & Solutions division in 2019 with a team of over 60 people to provide software to streamline the complete print process. This includes: Durst LIFT ERP, a Cloud-based ERP/MIS system; Durst Smart Shop, a comprehensive premium e-commerce option for customisable print products; and Durst Workflow, a high-end system for fully automated management of pre-press and production tasks. Such systems are tailored for digital printing and offer a 360-degree approach for optimising printing processes in a mixed-vendor production environment.

Michael Deflorian, business unit manager at Durst Software & Solutions, said, ‘We wanted to serve our customers even better in consultancy and integration, and make our product portfolio easily accessible. We started looking for an experienced integration partner in Europe, and Four Pees quickly appeared on our radar. It has a finger on the pulse of the global printing industry and a proven track record in delivering complex automation projects. When we started talking to each other, we found that we were very complementary to each other in the way we work.’

Four Pees CEO Tom Peire said, ‘For nearly 15 years now, we have helped automate print processes around the world at big and small companies. With an increased focus on integration services and an expanded team, this new partnership with the Durst Software & Solutions division is the next step in our growth story. Its vision from ‘Pixel to Output’ perfectly aligns with our vision of implementing automation from A to Z. We look forward to working with the different regional Durst teams to help printing companies get the best out of their print production.’
