  • PRINERGY Marks 20th Anniversary

    Kodak & the North American Graphic Users’ Association (GUA) recently concluded their 2019 GUA Conference & workshop in New Orleans. Over 150 attendees—printers, industry partners & media—convened at the event to mark PRINERGY’s 20th anniversary of workflow collaboration between print service providers & Kodak. Among the attendees were some of the original printers to adopt PRINERGY into their production workflow. A common theme emerged about the impact of PRINERGY on the industry and its contribution of allowing flexible & efficient workflows, for printers of all sizes, to drive down operating costs.

    Giving the opening address, Todd Bigger—President, Kodak Software Division—set out a clear vision for how Kodak & PRINERGY will continue to provide innovative tools and close collaboration in order to remain competitive and profitable. “PRINERGY aims to eliminate complexity for printers with comprehensive automation that is easily expandable, so you can add capabilities as your needs change, as your business evolves.”

    What seems to be missing in all the reports is that Prinergy was conceived and developed by Creo.

      You're right Gordo. Those were times of rapid innovations and corporate acquisitions: Creo developed Prinergy in 1999 for their CtP products, acquired the assets / absorbed Scitex in 2000 and were themselves acquired by Kodak in 2005. Back in those days, proprietary Million dollar systems were being pressured by inexpensive DTP computers and un-bundled software vendors. The industry no longer wanted to pay for those highly-integrated, proprietary systems, and many decided to go it on their own, only to learn that non-integrated, non-proprietary systems lacked the bells, whistles and functionality of system level products; forcing many to be acquired or fold, altogether.
