Fujifilm has partnered with eProductivity Software (ePS) on a new extended end-to-end print workflow production offering.

The two companies have come together to showcase how Fujifilm’s XMF PressReady workflow can be paired and integrated with ePS’ MarketDirect StoreFront e-commerce and MIS system to manage print production to Fujifilm’s Revoria and Apeos ranges of digital presses.

Both technologies will be showcased at Fujifilm’s European Print Experience Centres in Germany and Belgium, and will be a major focus at Fujifilm’s Peak Performance Print event, taking place in late January 2024.

The businesses said the partnership would enable customers to see real examples of an end-to-end workflow, from job onboarding via a web-to-print system, to registering the job in an MIS system and the full management of a print job to organise, impose, gang print, and finish.

The aim is to enable customers to consider which elements of their workflow could be updated to add value to their business.

Additionally, Fujifilm said it has a team of workflow experts at both of its Print Experience Centres that can work with customers “to create a next-generation workflow offering that will maximise profitability from their new digital press investment”.

John Davies, product group manager for workflow systems at Fujifilm Europe, said: “This partnership with ePS showcases our dedication to working with market-leading suppliers in order to create a complete print solution offering for our customers.

“The growth forecast for digital printing is healthy, but this means there is increasing pressure to manage more print jobs, in order to provide quicker turnaround times, and this is only possible by also implementing smarter automation.

“We are excited that our complete digital print solution, in partnership with ePS, will deliver the levels of end-to-end workflow automation that our customers require.”

John Morley, global channel partner sales director at eProductivity Software, added: “ePS is delighted to extend our reseller agreement with Fujifilm into EMEA, following the success we have seen in Asia Pacific, and we are excited by the opportunity to partner and integrate with Fujifilm solutions.

“Customer success is at the heart of what both ePS and Fujifilm do, and this is another example of how working together with industry market leaders offers huge value and opportunities for customers.

“I am confident that this partnership will bring fantastic opportunities to automate, optimise and drive efficiencies and we are excited for what the future holds as we continue to work together.”
