ANN ARBOR, Michigan , July 7, 2023 (press release) –

Xitron, a subsidiary of Hybrid Software Group and the developer of Harlequin-based Navigator RIP and workflow products for commercial, flexo, screen, digital, and high-speed inkjet printing, has announced the return of their interest-free payment plans for RIPs, Workflows, and CTP interface kits. Originally introduced to assist printing companies affected by Covid shutdowns, the program is being restarted in the face of inflationary pressures and rising interest rates.

Most Xitron products are eligible for participation, with Xitron offering scalable payment plans based on the cost of the system. Printers can choose plans from 90 days to 18 months - with no interest or fees. Unlike leases or subscriptions, the user owns the software license and hardware at the end of the scheduled payments.

“We’re talking to a lot of printers who need to update their prepress systems, but are concerned about cost, cash flow, and the state of the economy,” said Karen Crews , president of Xitron. “They’re under pressure to become more efficient and maintain margins while material and labor costs continue to rise, which is difficult to do with aging prepress systems. By spreading the costs over several months, they’re able to get the solutions they need with little impact to their bottom line.” Eligible products include Xitron’s Navigator RIP and workflow, Sierra workflow, Raster Blaster TIFF Catcher, all Navigator Flexo Suites, all computer-to-plate interface kits, and the on-press ink key setting solution, KeySetter Connect.

“Small business and capital equipment loan rates currently range from six to twenty percent, and credit card rates average even higher,” said Crews. “Our programs eliminate those costs and allow printers to get the prepress upgrades they need, streamline and automate their work, and directly impact their margins.” For more information, interested printers can contact Xitron through their local dealer, or by writing to sales@xitron.com.
