On your mark, get set, go! Also this year, the Online Print Symposium in Munich at the beginning of March was on the agenda for us. As in previous years, we were once again present as a premium partner and were able to introduce our "rissc universe" to the 300 or so visitors there.
Although the signs for OPS 2020 were not necessarily positive - as is to be expected - due to the beginning corona crisis, a cancellation on our part was never in question. So it was all the more pleasant to discover many new faces among the visitors present, in addition to many old acquaintances of the industry. With around 300 participants, the rooms of the Infinity Hotel in Munich were once again well attended and the perfect backdrop for our now well-known blue "rissc universe". Visually, there was a small, but no less important addition - bright green in the form of balloons now also adorned our stand, along with versions in blue, and generated initial inquiries after only a few minutes.
The solution of the riddle was revealed to everyone who was not only interested in the additional coloring but also in the printed logos. In addition to Shopify, a brand new logo, the printformer.io logo, now also found its place there, because the OPS was the perfect event for us to present our new app to the wider professional audience. Our CEO Alex Sperrfechter revealed this to attentive visitors in a creative way in the OPS teaser videos (click here for the VIDEO ) and those who wanted to have everything explained live afterwards had plenty of opportunity.
Our printformer.io app, a version of our printformer specially tailored for seamless integration with Shopify, now combines the best of both worlds. After we implemented the first integration of this kind in the Shopify web shop of Logolini®Präsente at the end of last year (click here for the article), we will continue to use the innovative e-commerce platform Shopify as the basic e-commerce framework for their presentation at OPS 2020. Not only since the current corona crisis, the topic of transformation and digitalization has been a real challenge for many companies in the print and media services industry. The crisis now clearly shows how important it is to deal with these issues in a future-oriented and sustainable manner. If not yesterday, then even more so today. With the release of printformer.io, we are giving companies of all kinds the easy way to overcome these previously insurmountable entry hurdles in the field of Web2Publish and support the process by integrating the printformer software into Shopify in just a few steps. If you want and need to take advantage of the signs of the times right now, you can set up your own shop in just a few minutes and use the printformer.io app to place a professional print shop with editor and print data upload on the market. Fast time-to-market without lengthy implementation processes has never been more in demand than now - this was also the response of the interested visitors at our stand at the Online Print Symposium. If you want to know more about this, you can obtain further information in advance at www.printformer.io.
For us the days at the OPS in Munich were again a complete success. The numerous positive feedback, the generally positive mood and many interesting discussions and inquiries, round off the significance of this event for us optimistically. With the alignment of our new app, we have hit a nerve in the eyes of the industry, which for many companies is a real option for maintaining their future prospects. Reason enough for us to continue to convince with our passion for print, our experience in Wep2Print or Web2Publish and with customer-oriented software solutions. We are already looking forward to the year 2021 and the next OPS in Munich
