Technological Alliance between Caldera and Color Alliance
Offers perfectly matched RIP and Workflow Systems
Vlotho/Germany and Strasbourg/France, May 2014
Color Alliance (CA), specialist for digital large format printing and provider of web to print software for printing plants and LFP service providers and Caldera, a leading provider of RIP and workflow solutions, form a technological alliance to offer perfectly matched RIP and workflow systems to their more than fifteen thousand customers worldwide. This allows users to optimally drive and operate their machines at full capacity.
By using CA Smartshop customer orders are directly transferred to Caldera ́s own workflow solution »Caldera Flow«. This means the order is directly sent to the RIP and from there further to the machine. The benefit is a perfectly matched workflow in which Color Alliance escorts from the idea to the order before Caldera takes over the order guiding it to the final product.
