Caldera congratulates partners on inclusion in Wide-Format Imaging’s Top 40 Shops.
Wide-format printing software specialist Caldera is celebrating the inclusion of 13 of its partners on Wide-Format Imaging’s Top 40 Shops list for 2012. The respected list of the best US print shops saw six Caldera users make it into the top ten, and a further six rounding out the top 20.
This impressive representation is testament to Caldera’s standing as a global leader in RIP and workflow solutions for wide-format print houses, and the company is delighted to congratulate so many of its American partners on this accolade following a challenging year for the industry. As a fundamental part of any wide-format print business, the right RIP solution can make the difference between being one of the top-performing companies and not quite making the grade, as the Caldera users in the Top 40 list will testify.
Coloredge, which took the top spot in the 2012 list, is currently in the process of standardizing its RIP solutions across all its East and West Coast production facilities and has chosen Caldera as its premier RIP software following extensive analysis of the performance of all the RIPs it currently uses. «Caldera’s overall score was more than double the other RIPs» says Brett Heyman, Prepress Manager at Coloredge. «Caldera has proven to us to have a superior system put in place not only to streamline our workflow, but to provide better features across the board. With the amazing team here at Coloredge New York/Los Angeles and Caldera as part of our premier products, it is no coincidence why we are and continue to be the industry leader in visual communications, creating solutions for imageconscious and consumer-oriented brands.»
Alex Wise, Wide Format Operations at Duggal Visual Solutions, ranked by WFI at number three in the country, agrees. «Caldera has far exceeded other RIP technology providers with respect to its versatility and support» he says. «GrandRIP+ provides the tools, flexibility and hardware support Duggal requires as a key component to maintaining a competitive advantage in the marketplace.»
«It is rewarding for us as a company to know that so many of the USA’s leading print businesses rely on Caldera for cutting-edge RIP and workflow solutions» comments Sebastien Hanssens, Vice President of Marketing and Communications, at Caldera. «The variety of Caldera users in the Top 40, from small shops to multi-location companies, demonstrates the versatility of Caldera’s products and our commitment to developing solutions for every kind of wide-format print business.»
