HP shuts down Hiflex

HP has quietly shut down Hiflex, the German MIS and web to print company that it bought in 2011. Hiflex was one of the first MIS providers to move to a cloud-only model and seemed to embody a renewed interest from HP in its approach to workflow software for the commercial print sector. HP declined to answer as to why the company had given up on Hiflex, though presumably it failed to attract a wide enough user base. Existing web to print customers will continue to be supported up till 30 June 2016, with MIS customers having support until 31 December 2017.
