My customers are proactively vocal about their new-found ability, traceable to RealTimeProof Express, to cut their costs while getting their materials out the door faster than ever."
The company also congratulates is partner, Kodak Polychrome Graphics for its receipt of the award for its Matchprint virtual proofing system, which RealTimeImage says is a joint venture with KP Graphics that includes a suite of web-based image viewing, collaboration, and approval tools from RealTimeImage.
GATF sponsors the award and coordinates the award process, but does not select the recipients.

Companies are not required to be GATF/PIA (Printing Industries of America Inc.) members to submit technologies for judging.
