The CERM-HYBRID Partnership highlights our commitment to streamlining and enhancing prepress operations. We feel that awarding HYBRID Software our Premium Integration Partner quality label is another great step forward and adds extra punch to our high-end and automated prepress workflow solutions for the label and packaging printing industry.

The significance of prepress workflow automation

At CERM, we believe in connecting all elements of your business and creating a seamless integration of your complete workflow, from CRM to invoicing. An integrated workflow improves your productivity and from this conviction, we suggest automating as much of your workflow as possible.

Prepress workflow is often the ideal starting point for automation. Subsequent stages can smoothly integrate your printing presses and finishing machines into the already established automated prepress workflow. This step-by-step integration process ensures a cohesive and efficient workflow.

Key standard integrations with industry leaders

Recognizing the importance of collaboration, we have invested significantly in our partner integrations with leading prepress software suppliers for the label and packaging printing industry. Awarding HYBRID Software with the CERM Premium Integration Partnership is not just a quality assurance and sign of their proven excellence. It also further empowers our automated partner solutions for (prepress) workflows for CERM customers and prospects.

Inside the CERM-HYBRID CLOUDFLOW integration

The integration between CERM and HYBRID Software’s CLOUDFLOW is designed to automate the entire process from product creation in the CERM MIS Software to the approval of the soft proof by the print buyer. CLOUDFLOW’s Proofscope module for soft proofing and collaboration is seamlessly integrated in the Web4Labels CERM application for a smart approval workflow.

This automation not only saves time and reduces errors but also allows prepress operators to focus on high-value operations, leveraging their expertise.

The CERM-HYBRID CLOUDFLOW integration operates on bidirectional JDF-JMF data exchange. Utilizing product properties from the CERM MIS system, JDF instructions are sent to HYBRID CLOUDFLOW, initiating an automated prepress job.

This process includes bidirectional synchronization of artwork status and the exchange of product color details, which become part of the product description in the CERM MIS. Finally, the soft proof PDF generated by HYBRID’s CLOUDFLOW is sent to the print buyer for approval. Upon approval, the prepress workflow for the product is complete, ready for production upon customer order.


This partnership and the integration between CERM and HYBRID Software combines expertise and technology. It sets new standards in the label and packaging print industry, emphasizing our commitment to innovation and excellence.
