Kodak recently announced the launch of the revolutionary Kodak Prinergy on demand business solutions. Kodak has collaborated with leading software providers, including Microsoft, PrintVis, and VPress, to create a comprehensive software solution for all applications and printers of any size.

Kodak’s Prinergy on demand business solutions provide scalable, automated, end-to-end solutions that cover requirements from order to cash and procurement to pay. These new solutions help printers manage their entire business processes conveniently, smoothly and efficiently, eliminating the complexity and costs of integrating, updating, and maintaining numerous standalone software products from different suppliers.

Prinergy on demand business solutions combine full-featured Office, CRM, ERP, and MIS functionality with collaboration solutions, web-to-print, and the Prinergy on demand  production workflow in a single fully integrated cloud-based solutions platform. The cutting- edge software is hosted on Microsoft Azure, which provides security and the highest levels of availability. Kodak has enhanced the software with industry-specific analytics and AI capabilities and takes care of integration, IT administration, and ongoing maintenance through real-time managed services. The print-specific ERP / MIS component based on Microsoft Dynamics 365 business central came from PrintVis, while VPress contributed advanced web-to-print, eCommerce storefront, and VDP authoring functionality.

“Kodak’s Prinergy on demand business solutions bring the convenience and cost-effectiveness of fully-integrated, subscription-based software solutions to the printing industry,” commented Todd Bigger, vice president, Print, Kodak. “Printers get the peace of mind of seamless, automated, print-specific solutions without the finger-pointing, complexity, and hidden costs of having to integrate products from different vendors.”

“Delivering operational flexibility, actionable insights, and streamlined workflows, Microsoft Dynamics business central helps Kodak provide solutions that allow customers to focus more on their own customers and less on managing software and servers’,” said Cecilia Flombaum, Ecosystem lead for Microsoft Business Applications at Microsoft.

“We are excited to work with Kodak as a new PrintVis partner. PrintVis’ overall market presence will be strengthened with Kodak’s strong reputation and expertise in the print industry,” said Kasper Tomshøj, chief executive officer, PrintVis. “Together, we are able to deliver a full array of print-specific software for customers on a global scale.”

KODAK Prinergy on demand business solutions are available in the USA, Canada and Western Europe from the 1 January 2021. For more information, please visit www.kodak.com/go/Prinergysolutions
