Kodak and Arden Software Form Alliance
ROCHESTER, N.Y.—A new alliance between Kodak and Arden Software brings 3D prototyping and structural design solutions to the packaging market. The two companies offer products and solutions for brand owners, as well as package printers and converters. Arden’s IMPACT structural design applications integrate with Kodak’s PRINERGY POWERPACK Workflow to facilitate the packaging production workflow from product design through to print production.
Arden is a provider of structural design and manufacturing software for its related pre-production workflow management solutions for the packaging industry. Through this collaborative marketing and selling agreement, Kodak and Arden will combine forces to market, sell, and implement the complementary product portfolios which extend from the structural design and production management software solutions to Kodak’s CTP, proofing products, and consumables.
“As companies strive to reduce the impact of packaging on the environment, the use of structural design software to facilitate product redesign and prototyping is growing,” said Steve Miller, product manager, Packaging Workflow, Kodak. “The alliance is intended to address this trend and help brand owners and package printers bring redesigned products to market more quickly.”
This alliance includes using implementation teams from both companies to meet specific customer requirements.
