At Dscoop Dallas 2018, HP unveiled the PrintOS Marketplace, described by the company as a new solutions community for the HP PrintOS cloud-based print production operating system. Designed to provide tools for printers using HP technologies, Marketplace will offer production and design tools and services from both HP and third parties.
Opening this summer, Marketplace will be open to any vendor to offer subscription-based apps for PrintOS members that help HP customers automate production, expand offerings and grow business. Today, PrintOS has 5,400 printing providers subscribed to the system, including owners of HP Indigo, HP PageWide Industrial and HP Scitex presses.
“Our partners have innovative solutions. The PrintOS Marketplace will serve as a platform to spread the innovation and will help customers to adapt faster to the changing print market,” said Alon Bar-Shany, General Manager, HP Indigo, HP Inc.
OneFlow System Systems and HYBRID Software are the first two partners enrolled in the PrintOS Marketplace. Pre-release versions of their app solutions were demonstrated in the HP Dscoop showcase.
OneFlow’s AutoFlow solution automates manual prepress operations including artwork fetching, checking, fixing and manipulation. HYBRID Software’s PACKZilizer is a cloud-based application to prepare packaging files for production.
Additionally, some 20 HP solutions partners have already integrated their solutions with PrintOS.
