Transferring digital data

Hybrid’s Cloudflow Share

In a major expansion of its product portfolio Hybrid Software has developed a unique method of transferring digital data between sites, which the company says will provide a range of important advantages over existing file transfer systems. Cloudflow Share has been created following a request from Hybrid customer Brand Quadergy, one of the leading European suppliers of brand asset management services.

Cloudflow Share will be an add-on to the Cloudflow workspace and will provide the ability to link different Cloud-flow systems to transfer jobs, files, licences, users, workflows. The new soft-ware works with Cloudflow systems that share a database, but also with completely independent Cloudflow systems operating separate databases.This allows the use of lower bandwidth Internet links.

“We’re a long standing customer of Hybrid and are excited at being the world’s first user of Cloudflow Share,”says Erik de Cloe, COO of DSN, a subsidiary of Brand Quardergy. “We were an early user of Hybrid’s PACKZ and have its Cloudflow workspace and Proofscope remote proofing software inuse at our premises in Belgium, Ger-many and Bulgaria. At present we trans-fer files between sites, including those we operate in the UK, France and Czech Republic, using self-developed tools that are triggered by our ERP system.”

Brand Quadergy provides a huge range of prepress services to leading brand names in markets such as retail,pharmaceutical, food and cosmetics. It has created centres of excellence within the group and Cloudflow Share will en-able the easy transfer of digital files to those sites where tasks can be carried out by the relevant experts.

“We work with high resolution files and Cloudflow Share allows the trans-fer of only that part of the file which needs updating,” says de Cloe. “All of this is handled automatically by Hybrid’s software. Another advantage is the ability to move work easily to a site where there is more capacity and with six sites in Europe this should enable significant improvements in efficiency.The new software can also be used with workflows from other vendors.”

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
