As an example, the certified workflow allows automated creation of jobs, including very complex versions within ECO3 Apogee from an ePS MIS/ERP platform. It also facilitates the tracking of file receipt and approval in Apogee WebApproval, along with the generation of printing plates, proofs, and digital prints.
“ePS and ECO3 are fully committed to supporting the printing market to adapt their production environment for growth. This collaborative approach ensures that the end-users will have the best possible tools for success at their disposal,” said Erik Peeters, ECO3 marketing manager software. “Our strategic and measured approach enhances product stability and reliability. It also enables us to deliver new automation features and functionalities, keeping pace with evolving market trends and customer demands.”

“We’re excited to partner with ECO3, leveraging our strengths to deliver exceptional value to customers,” comments Nick Benkovich, VP, Portfolio Management & Strategic Partnerships, ePS. “With a shared dedication to aligning priorities, deliveries and development timelines, we aim to create seamless products that prioritize their experience.”
Customers already experiencing the benefits of a combined ePS/ECO3 workflow include award-winning print organization, Stephens & George, in Wales.
"We have recently adopted ePS Tharstern as our MIS Partner to work alongside ECO3’s Apogee Prepress workflow, and the integration has proved seamless. The JDF capabilities of Tharstern working with Apogee has delivered us a near 100% JDF-enabled workflow throughout the whole business2, states Jamie Awford, Prepress Manager - Stephens & George.
Another printing company benefiting from this integrated workflow is T’Hooft, which is based in Belgium.
"The integration of ECO Apogee and ePS Technique is impressive. We consider Technique's versioning module very powerful. A large amount of our production contains multiple versions. For orders with multiple address changes alone, the integration of the systems saves us 15 to 20 minutes per printing order", so David Van De Velde, Prepress Manager - T’Hooft.
The new collaboration will be presented on the international stage at drupa 2024, during 28 May–7 June, in Düsseldorf (Germany).
