Our software has been built using SQL and web services that are friendly to other providers and developers. By making it possible for other applications to share data with our MIS and to take actions on its behalf (and vice versa) our customers know that however their business develops in the future, their MIS can grow with them.
Here's 3 reasons why being open is good:
We've all heard the phrase 'Jack of all trades, master of none'. Well with software that's open to integration with other providers, you can create a production workflow that's built by a team of masters. You can choose the best solution for each part of your workflow and avoid any shortcomings that may arise from being limited to a single provider or to existing integrations.
One way to future proof your MIS against future technological advancements is to deploy solutions that are integration-friendly. It's then possible to incorporate these new advancements without swapping out an entire end-to-end system.
Once a business implements an end-to-end system from a single vendor, it's making a long term commitment to stay with them. Should something happen to that vendor, or the relationship turns sour, the costs involved in switching providers will be substantial - both in terms of cost and in time.
If you're looking to achieve integration with HP Production Centre, HP Production Pro or both, then take a look at our datasheet which provides the technical facts and details exactly what you can achieve with a Tharstern MIS.
Watch how Tharstern integrates with Agfa's prepress workflow, Apogee. Our MD and Chief Integration Ninja, Keith McMurtrie, guides you through the integration in this comprehensive runthrough.
