A B Graphic International premieres as first CERM Premium Integration Partner
In our dynamic label and packaging printing industry, partnerships play a crucial role in driving innovation and improving productivity, quality, and service through workflow automation. Recognizing the significance of these partner integrations, we have taken a new bold step forward by introducing our ‘CERM Premium Integration Partner’ quality label.
Launching our 'Premium Integration Partner' label
This distinctive partner label concept underlines our commitment to fostering strong relationships with label- and packaging printing industry leaders and to promoting seamless workflow integration through high-level partner interfaces.
“ All individual software and workflow systems offer a set of functionalities that improve your productivity. But, it’s the interaction between these systems and your MIS Software that creates an extra dimension with endless possibilities.
Launching our CERM Premium Integration Partner label sets the bar of what could be an ideal partnership and it challenges ourselves to work towards a common goal with all our industry partners.”
-- Geert Van Damme, CEO at CERM
Each partnership under the Premium Integration Partner program will be carefully evaluated based on 5 essential criteria. Of course, each integration has a context of its own and needs to be assessed individually but these criteria contribute to a successful partnership and an effective integration.
The number of live customer installations, bi-directional data-exchange – important to ensure seamless data flows between MIS and operating systems –, the quality of documentation and customer support. The 5th one, the level of business automation indicates the added value and boosts productivity by reducing manual intervention in the printshop.
Leading the way: A B Graphic International
The integration between ABG Connect and the CERM MIS Software – as well as our close contact and coordination between both companies - serves as an inspiring example of how such partnerships can drive innovation and increase operational efficiency, ultimately leading to enhanced business output.
Therefore, we are proud to announce that A B Graphic International is the first to receive the CERM Premium Integration Partner label. Geert Van Damme explains:
"A B Graphic International has proven that they take the integration vision seriously in the last decade. They’ve re-engineered the complete backbone of their software, they’ve successfully launched customer prototype projects, and – most importantly – they’ve wrapped it up in an off-the-shelve automation product. We can only hope that all industry partners follow their example."
" CERM and ABG have a lot of synergies and it’s been a pleasure to build such a constructive and beneficial working relationship that allows us to deliver a level of automation that is unique to the market. We’re looking forward to seeing the benefits this brings our customers. "
-- Mark Norman Technical Director at A B Graphic International
