Esko Releases Suite 14.1 with SaaS Options

July 21, 2015  By PrintAction Staff

Esko has launched version 14.1 of its Software Suite primarily aimed at the packaging industry. The new software version is to include Software as a Service (SaaS) and subscription options, in addition to continuing perpetual software licenses.

“SaaS and Subscription models for software are becoming the de facto standard in the software industry,” said Bernard Zwaenepoel, Esko’s SVP Software Business. “Esko 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.”

In addition to a broader availability of SaaS and subscription resources, Esko explains Suite 14.1 also includes a range of across-the-board enhancements. WebCenter upgrades include a new 2D and 3D viewer, based on the HTML5 Web standard, which also improves the WebCenter user experience on mobile devices, tablets and smartphones.


Besides connecting with Automation Engine, WebCenter now connects with other WebCenter and/or Automation Engine instances. Esko explains this is a key enabler to develop and monitor multi-site automated workflows in a global environment.

As well, DeskPack, i-cut Suite, Studio and Cape are now available in Suite 14.1 as bundles with different levels of functionality and pricing based on user needs, including Essentials and Advanced.
