Printing Industry | New Sales Partnership iQIP® and CGS ORIS Launch Cooperation

Hainburg/Munich, Germany (26.11.2021) - Combining what together brings even greater added value for customers: this is the goal of the new partnership between iQIP® GmbH & Co. KG and CGS ORIS. From now on, the iQIP® team will additionally integrate the CGS ORIS product portfolio in consulting and sales.

Digital handshake of the two CEO's

For both software companies, the focus is on optimizing and increasing the efficiency of processes and results for print service providers and their customers.

"The extensive portfolio of CGS ORIS fits seamlessly into the "smart quality hub" concept of iQIP®. Through the cooperation, we can provide our customers with a complete package of tools from data optimization, to brand color communication, to quality control.

We are convinced that our current and future customers will benefit greatly from the cooperation between CGS ORIS and iQIP®, because we consider the CGS ORIS software to be one of the highest quality color management tools on the market. We have come to know the team behind it as innovative, communicative and reliable. We are therefore very much looking forward to the cooperation.

- Stefan Spengler, CEO of iQIP GmbH & Co. KG

"In addition to the content match of our solutions, the partnership also makes it very clear how profitable it is to be able to combine software from different manufacturers in an uncomplicated way - in other words, to actually provide open systems with which users can get the most out of them"

- Bernd Rückert, CEO of CGS ORIS

"Recently, we have often seen customers using software that can only be combined with products from one manufacturer. However, many users were not aware of this at the time of purchase. They want to decide much more freely and put together individually what best suits them and their specific requirements," he sums up. "But to do that, the systems have to be open and able to communicate with each other."

Due to the advancing digitalization, easy and fast integrability of software tools into existing infrastructures has become more and more important. The color experts at CGS ORIS are also increasingly being used as "color consultants" who advise on the optimization and automation of workflows and put together holistic solutions for managing and optimizing colors in the printing process.

iQIP® has undergone an all-around makeover. Stefan Spengler's company was previously known as impakt-medien. In 2021, the Munich-based company launched not only new software features but also a completely new website ( The change of name also took place. "Already in the past, we were known as the team from

iQIP® perceived," reports Spengler. "With the unification of also using the product name iQIP® as a company name, we create clear recognition and facilitate brand communication," he classifies the step.

iQIP® has been on the market as Print Quality Cloud since 2010 and was thus a technological pioneer at a time when other companies were still relying on desktop applications. As a central hub for communication and quality management, iQIP® combines printer and print buyer in the cloud. With its intelligent evaluation algorithm, iQIP® provides a reliable quality metric that serves as a central variable for all stakeholders.


iQIP GmbH & Co KG (previously impakt-medien), based south of Munich, has been established on the market for more than 10 years in the field of print production quality management. In 2011, the team was awarded 3rd place in the "PrintStars" innovation prize for its innovative iQIP® cloud software. The Print Quality Cloud is used by brands such as REWE Group, COOP Switzerland and Wort & Bild Verlag and their pool print shops to increase efficiency and centralize communication. In addition, the iQIP® team of experts supports its customers with first-class color management services and consulting.
