HP Indigo has announced the expansion of its software offering, designed to help users benefit from the capabilities that can be gained through integrating software and data-driven tools into the print production floor.

Specifically, the new HP PrintOS Software Suite simplifies HP’s application portfolio, which will now consist of four modules called ‘Power Packs’.

PrintOS is a Cloud-based operating system. Following the latest development, the software suite will now consist of four Power Packs, concentrating on press monitoring and productivity management tools, applications for consistent quality across jobs, presses and sites, unique personalisation and customisation creativity modules, and digital site automation flow from submission to shipping.

‘Our most successful and advanced customers are relying on software to maximise their production efficiency, make smart decisions quickly and expand their offering,’ said Noam Zilbershtain, general manager of HP Indigo and Scitex. ‘We understand that prosperity in the digital print production business is data-driven and software-driven, and we want each one of our users to leverage these resources to grow their business.’

Director of industrial software solutions, Petar Obradovic, said,‘PrintOS has more than 22,000 HP Indigo users, and more than 4000 of them use it daily.’ Mr Obradovic explained that the PrintOS Software Suite enables customers to monitor their production in real-time, claimed to be able to ‘increase productivity by up to 50%, automate processes like quality control and colour matching, and produce consistent prints across jobs, presses and sites’.

‘Any print service provider, whether or not they aspire to become a global online supplier if they are managing high volumes of data efficiently with consistent quality – requires our software solutions to optimise their digital transformation,’ he concluded.
