At drupa 2016, the company launched the Heidelberg Cloud – a solution geared to the print media industry for global networking of all Heidelberg products for digital services and smart eShopping. Over 25,000 machines and software modules are already connected to the Heidelberg Cloud. The new Heidelberg Assistant portal, which has also been optimized for mobile use, augments the existing platform and gives customers direct access to all Heidelberg service applications in an effort to boost the availability and productivity of their print shops.
The View2Connect platform solution aims to simplify processes at mechanical engineering companies. This software allows for collaboration between development, purchasing, production, assembly, and services in the value chain. Heidelberg uses the product in-house and also sells it to outside companies from, among others, the mechanical engineering and automotive industries.
