HYBRID Software celebrates sale of 100th PACKZ in Italy

07/11/2017

HYBRID Software has announced the 100th sale in Italy of its professional editing software PACKZ, which has been installed by Artes, one of the country’s leading self-adhesive label printers. The Arcisate-based printer has been producing labels for more than 40 years and prides itself on investing in cutting-edge technology.

Guido Van der Schueren, HYBRID Software chairman, says: “As the only vendor-neutral standard for graphics files, PDF eliminates the problems encountered by proprietary formats that lock-in users and deny them flexibility. By capturing all elements of the job in a single, convenient file, PDF ensures predictable results at every stage, without the need for file conversions which can often slow production. Offering support for advanced features such as transparency and versioning, PDF is increasingly the choice for packaging graphics production and platemaking.”

Italy is an extremely important market for PACKZ with customers there representing some significant milestones for HYBRID Software, which is the fastest growing software company in the graphic arts sector. In 2016 the 400th seat of PACKZ worldwide was installed by flexographic printer Z Due, one of the leading players in the Italian flexographic market.
