GHENT, BELGIUM | Esko announces the launch of its Software Suite release 14.1, a comprehensive update of its full Suite of software solutions. Besides a range of functional updates for each of the Suite’s applications, the Suite will be rolling out with Software as a Service (SaaS) and Subscription options said to give users greater flexibility, scalability, and a lower total cost of ownership.

“Esko is dedicated to providing innovative features and developments to the package and label printing industry,” says Bernard Zwaenepoel, Esko’s SVP Software Business. “SaaS and Subscription models for software are becoming the de facto standard in the software industryEsko has worked hard to keep pace with customer needs and industry trends and to bring more value to customers with our Suite 14.1 release. While we have been offering a subscription model for some time for certain software modules, this release broadens the scope of that effort across more Suite 14.1 modules and responds to customer requests for increased cloud-based delivery of Esko software solutions. While perpetual software licenses will continue to be offered, customers now have the option of choosing a SaaS or Software Subscription model if it better fits their operational needs.”

Company says that in addition to a broader availability of SaaS and subscription resources, Suite 14.1 also includes a number of across-the-board enhancements, all developed to maximize ease of use, make implementation faster, improve support ,and deliver an even more outstanding customer experience.

WebCenter enhancements include a new 2D and 3D viewer, based on today’s HTML5 web standard, said to make viewing of package and display designs faster. It also improves the WebCenter user experience on mobile devices, tablets, and smartphones. Besides connecting with Automation Engine, WebCenter reportedly now connects flawlessly with other WebCenter and/or Automation Engine instances. This is the key enabler to develop and monitor multi-site, highly automated workflows in a global environment. This feature facilitates centralized prepress workflows that extend across multi-plant operation, or between brand owners and their print service providers.
