Esko has introduced Esko Software Suite 7, a complete collection of the company’s software tools. Esko design applications integrate with tools used for solid modeling of the product itself. Designs from CAD software like SolidWorks, CATIA or AutoCAD are imported into the packaging workflow to optimize the packaging design process. Esko Software Suite 7 has Adobe’s PostScript and PDF libraries on board for flexibility for import and export of data. The software’s workflow automation capabilities reduce the risk of operator error. It integrates easily with other business systems like ERP, PLM or CRM tools. Improved JDF integration with MIS results in enhanced production automation, such as automated step and repeat workflows and reporting of job status.
