Press Release

COMOSOFT EXPANDS THE SOUTH AMERICAN MARKET 

Comosoft successfully continues course of internationalization and finds the right partner in Brand&Label to develop the Latin American market. 

South American digital transformation experts company Brand&Label SPA and Comosoft form a strong cooperation in South America (LATAM market).

Hamburg/Chile, February 2017: Comosoft, one of the leading providers of multichannel solutions for the segments „Consumer Goods & Retail“, „Mail order & E-Commerce“ as well as „Industry“ continue their course of international expansion launched over 16 years ago and have found the perfect partner in Brand&Label. The aim is to support businesses on the Latin American market actively both in digital transformation as well as with omnichannel commerce.

A solid foundation was laid more than 16 years ago with Comosoft‘s venture into the North American market: leading US agencies as well as some of the world‘s largest retailers (such as e.g. Sears, Lowe‘s, Walgreens, Bass Pro) from a wide range of segments rely on Comosoft GmbH‘s technical competence. About the time Comosoft GmbH entered the North American market, an important and successful trading firm for cosmetics in South America (Peru) was also acquired.

The cooperation with Brand&Label is a logical and important step to further expand in this promising future market. Brand&Label plays an important role in this process, allowing the cooperative venture to meet local customer tastes and requirements in the best possible way.

More than just the language – expertise par excellence 

An important factor to success as a German provider on the LATAM market is to overcome language barriers – no software can be used successfully if it is not professionally implemented with knowledge of the industry. In Brand&Label, Comosoft GmbH has found a young and dynamic team who are qualified in much more than just local languages. The team at Brand&Label are experts when it comes to digitization strategies. They know precisely how they can help businesses to save a lot of time and costs in marketing processes – and now they also have the right software tools in their portfolio.

Think global, act local 

Comosoft now hopes to bring their established expertise from international projects successfully to the Latin American market and work together with partner Brand&Label SPA to further leverage potential. Both companies share a passion for digital transformation/omnichannel commerce, a global mindset and local roots for successful implementations.

Benjamin Ferreau, Managing Director of Comosoft GmbH and responsible for global Sales & Marketing: „We are very excited that we have found a partner in Brand&Label to jointly support businesses in digital transformation. We are combining the best of two worlds – this is a perfect fit, not only in regard to business expertise but also on the people side.“ 

Sebastian Hercovich, Founder and CEO of Brand&Label: „We are a young and dynamic team that provides businesses with solutions that meet the constantly increasing requirements of the market – that‘s why we look for experts with solutions. In Comosoft and the LAGO software, we have found the perfect partner, true experts in everything related to multichannel solutions and product information management. We look forward to working together!“

Position Paper 2017

Successful commerce today is marked by multichannel, cross-channel and even omnichannel courses of action. Digitization in particular plays an essential role, is also becoming more and more important and is progressing at an incredible rate. It is a one-of-a-kind political, economic and social change that is (simply) revolutionizing markets, industries and companies and even very diverse parts of life - or would you have ever thought that you would allow the world to participate directly in your purchasing decisions through social networks?

HIGHLIGHTS

CC2015 Support

With LAGO 4.13 the use of latest InDesign CC2015 version is supported for both macOS and Windows systems. Please note that the latest update is required for both the InDesign client (2015.4) and the InDesign server (2015.3) to be able to use the LAGO Plugins.

macOS Sierra Support

The latest version of the macOS "Sierra" is officially supported from the LAGO 4.13 release onwards, this included both client and web applications.

Application signing

To improve compatibility with the latest macOS versions the client applications LAGO Explorer and LAGO Pict as well as the installer application are now signed to enable them to be started on systems with Apple's Gatekeeper active and set to allow applications from the "App store and identified developers".

Security enhancements

To improve the security of LAGO systems it is now possible to remove the database connection information including user name and password from the application properties files which are stored on and served from the LAGO ConfigServer. Additionally the LAGO ConfigServer is now only accessible with a user name and password.

A further enhancement is the introduction of a "tarpit" to reduce the possibility of success of a brute force attack to identify user names and passwords by inserting a delay between login attempts after a number failed attempts.

 

Configurable UI LAGO Web

The user interface in LAGO Web has been, as promised in the last release, further enhanced to allow the configuration of buttons and views for the Admin Extend module and for the Proof module.

UPDATE: LATEST FIREFOX AND ADOBE FLASH VERSIONS WITH WINDOWS

DEAR CUSTOMERS,

It has come to our attention that the LAGO Web applications no longer function correctly under Microsoft Windows with the combination of the latest Firefox version (49.0.2) and Adobe Flash version (23.0.0.185).

We are currently investigating this issue and in the meantime recommend that customers refrain from upgrading to these versions.

UPDATE: Problems are not occuring anymore with Firefox 49.0.2 and Flash 23.0.0.205.

 

Best regards,
your Comosoft Quality Management Team
