Artoption becomes latest industry member of Ghent Workgroup

The Ghent Workgroup (GWG) is pleased to announce that Artoption has joined as its latest industry member. Artoption is a German based company located in Stuttgart, specialising in the development, production and distribution of software solutions for the print and publishing industry.

Since its inception in 2016, Artoption has not only been developing and distributing software solutions in the field of industrial production processes but has also been consulting in the development and use of software and hardware solutions. Furthermore, they develop PFD workflows based on Enfocus SWITCH such as 3CPDF.

3CPDF is an application that can check and correct your PDF print data in the cloud and is not only device- but also platform-independent. It helps to create a printable PDF file without needing any expertise. CEO of Artoption, Dirk Simanek has more than 20 years of experience as a SWITCH integrator and consultant to the print industry.

Dirk Simanek states: ‘To be successful in a print production environment, workflows and especially production must be automated. One of GWG’s strengths is to take direct input from print industry professionals and to integrate and develop this knowledge, when developing specifications or standards. The one thing that we all have in common is that only print data that meets all of the specifications can lead to optimal print results and thus to satisfied customers. We are proud to be a member of the Ghent Workgroup and look forward to the exchange.’

 ‘As PDF continues to provide an important document exchange format for print as well as packaging design and production, having companies like Artoption as a member of the GWG and developing new tools to support those efforts is critical. We welcome Artoption and look forward to their valued participation,’ said David Zwang GWG Chair.
