Products for the digital future

As cloud experts, we know how to develop modern software for today's requirements. Backed by our parent company, Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG, we also have the resources we need and decades of industry know-how, to build sustainable products that massively simplify the day-to-day work of print shops.

Our task is to link all the partners in a print shop technically in order to pave the way for digitisation and automation. Together with our partners, we tackle it step by step, and bring everyone together on one stage. Welcome to Zaikio!

These are our products:

Questions and Answers


Who is the Zaikio platform for?

Zaikio is for anyone or any print and graphics organisation active in the print industry. No-matter what industry segment you specialise in, or what your company produces, Zaikio can help meet your challenges.

When can I start?

You can get your own personal Zaikio account now, completely free of charge. It may take a few months for the platform to improve your print-shop as we are still developing, with the aim of completing Mid-2021. In the mean time we will integrate with ever increasing numbers of partners, software vendors and suppliers.

What's this going to cost?

Compared to integrating individually to various solutions which can be expensive, it’s often cheaper to connect with Zaikio and the embedded apps or services. We know that most printers want to reduce costs, so we want to bring you modern technologies without the high up front costs. Your personal Zaikio account is, and will always remain free.

How exactly does it work?

Zaikio is a truly open connectivity platform that enables data exchange between different software systems, machines and partners. This applies to modern cloud based systems and also site-based systems. Together with our partners, we eliminate erroneous processes in print shops and negate the need for expensive and unreliable silo solutions.

Who is Zaikio?

Zaikio is the philosophy of innovative, young and dynamic coding professionals with a whole lot of experience in the print industry, backed up by established Industry leaders like Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG. Programming and Design is in our DNA, we love to create nice and functional products. More partners will be launched soon. We believe that a co-operation with the right mind-set can solve the challenges of the print industry.
