Bangalore, June 29 (ANI/Business Wire India): InfoPrint Solutions Company, a joint venture between IBM and Ricoh, today announced a major enhancement to its developer support program, aimed at enabling partners to test and integrate new components into InfoPrint ProcessDirector (IPPD), the flagship output management workflow system.
This developer program extension creates a systematic and programmatic way for independent software vendors (ISVs) who want to expand IPPD functionality to interact with the InfoPrint technical team and InfoPrint development support resources.
Larger ISVs can extend their packaged offering by being able to market with print workflow software, while smaller ISV partners gain additional reach by selling their components as part of IPPD bids.
The program includes several elements such as an integration guide, written samples, case studies and technical tutorials for partners.
Users gain access to an external development system, or a loan of the required software for testing purposes. Placing a focus on ongoing learning, InfoPrint also offers an education series and technical support to all participating partners.
This also builds on the services offered via the InfoPrint Solutions Developer Program, such as InfoPrint's Virtual Print Facility (VPF).
This innovative function provides partner developers with remote access to InfoPrint's high-speed production machines, enabling real-time testing of generated print data streams.
"Enabling our partners to test and integrate their offerings with our core workflow products means that we go to market with the best solutions possible, that will meet current business demand and ensure customers remain competitive," said Enrico Parodi, Vice President WW Software and Services.
'Through working to support our established partnerships, we continue to bring our customers the most innovative products and services," added Parodi. (ANI)
