Six months after installing iCertification from DuPont Imaging Technologies, Heinz Packaging of Dublin reports a 30 per cent reduction in turnaround on all jobs to press for food giant Heinz. This advantage has enabled the packaging repro specialist to offer the highest print quality and ensure the greatest brand consistency worldwide, replacing fragmented local arrangements.

Heinz Packaging of Dublin is a wholly independent company, which now handles approximately 85 per cent of all repro for Heinz brands worldwide. According to Jonathan Clough, general manager: “Our Achilles heel was the geographical distance. Relying on couriers meant a delay of five days for jobs to Heinz in New Zealand or Australia and up to three days for the USA. “But iCertification has changed that completely. Overnight we went from sending up to 40 courier packages a day to making design changes and providing a press-ready proof within an hour.”

iCertification provides remote proofing capabilities with built-in workflow automation, file transfer and Internet based proof certification. The heart of the process is the DuPont iCertification web server which can be accessed from anywhere in the world.
