Solimar Systems and Screen Americas announce strategic partnership

Solimar Systems (San Diego, California), a global solutions provider specializing in multi-channel document communications solutions for print, web and mobile delivery, has announced a new partnership agreement with Screen Americas, a technology leader in the digital printing industry.

“While we hear from our customers and prove through benchmark testing that no front-end matches the ability of Equios to deliver pages to our presses at press speed,” said Ken Ingram, President of Screen Americas we also consistently hear that our customers need better end-to-end control of their entire document workflow. We know that Solimar solutions provide best-in-class solutions that will match the best-in-class productivity of Equios.”
