Esko and Corbus announce partnership to optimize deployment of Packaging Management Solutions for customers

Ghent (Belgium), October 11, 2016 – Esko (www.esko.com) and Corbus, LLC (www.corbus.com) have signed a teaming agreement to combine their products and service expertise to better support their clients.

Bringing Packaging Management Solutions and Brand Management projects together.

This latest partnership is one in a series Esko has engaged in to build a growing network of knowledgeable system integrators that, like Esko, have a strong presence in the brand owner community. This strategy complements Esko’s delivery of software and services into the brand owner community for packaging management and brand management projects, including solutions like Esko’s WebCenter and MediaBeacon. The Corbus partnership is set to deliver smooth implementations and support when there is a requirement to integrate Esko solutions with ERP and other back-end systems within brand owner organizations which will help reduce time to market.

The Esko WebCenter packaging management combined with MediaBeacon solutions streamline activities from specification and design through production and asset sharing across all digital channels. Users share files with all stakeholders for review, approval, collaboration and digital publishing. In the latest version, they are able to view 3D designs using a standard web browser on a desktop computer or mobile device, including accurately viewing transparencies and print finishing effect.

Fortune 500 companies

In addition to its partnerships within the supplier community, Esko over the years has developed deep relationships with a series of Fortune 500 brand owners in FMCG, Pharma and Health and Beauty. These well-known brands rely on partners such as Esko and Corbus to help them manage their packaging and digital publishing projects with the objective to maintain brand integrity while keeping costs and cycle times in line.

Philippe Adam, Esko’s Vice President Marketing, says, “We work closely with our Brand Owner customers to help them exceed their business objectives. Partnering with companies like Corbus that also have strong brand owner relationships are a force multiplier that benefits the entire ecosystem.”

“I am very excited about the new partnership with Esko,” adds Apurva Khanna, Corbus Vice President, Sales & Marketing. “I am confident that the synergies between the two companies will allow us both the opportunity to increase the value that we bring to our clients.”
