HP to acquire OneFlow Systems

HP has announced an agreement to acquire OneFlow Systems, a provider of cloud-based print workflow solutions based in the UK.

The acquisition continues HP’s focus on delivering industry-leading solutions to customers and commercial printers using HP presses, HP Indigo and HP PageWide Industrial.

OneFlow Systems has been an important HP partner, working closely with the company to co-develop a suite of simple to use, innovative features designed to make online print ordering simple.

Based on insights from publishers and book printers, HP also worked with OneFlow Systems to develop HP Piazza, a pioneering suite of cloud-based services designed to reinvent book publishing and distribution designed for a ‘print to order, direct to consumer’ model, while holding zero inventory.

“The demand for simple, scalable, on-demand printing continues to grow with publishers and brands, and the addition of OneFlow Systems underscores a massive productivity opportunity for commercial printers,“ said Santi Morera, General Manager and Global Head, Graphics Solutions Business, HP Inc.

“OneFlow Systems complements our industry-leading workflow automation solutions and will help us continue to drive digital print momentum for customers.”

The OneFlow Systems transaction is subject to customary closing conditions. Financial terms were not disclosed.
