Markzware, a California USA based company, is a software publisher with expertise in the worldwide graphics, printing and publishing industries.
Founded in 1992, Markzware was created by Patrick Marchese and Ron Crandall, and Markzware incorporated in 1995. We started with a dream of a superior quality control product for designers and printers which created the preflight industry. 1996 saw the company’s first footprint in Europe, and in 1998, a separate company, Markzware B.V., was created in The Netherlands.
In the fall of 1995, Markzware applied for U.S. Patent # 5,963,641 for the “Device and method for examining, verifying, correcting and approving electronic documents prior to printing, transmission or recording.” Markzware’s flagship product, FlightCheck®, is the embodiment of that patent. FlightCheck dominates the industry it created, serving thousands of professional creative design agencies, printers and publishers worldwide.
Today, Markzware expands its line of affordable data conversion and preflighting tools. Our objective is developing tools that work and that provide superb value for our customers. Ease of use and day-to-day labor reduction are key design factors.
Markzware products help our industry minimize environmental impact by repurposing content, reducing reprinting and providing file recovery to reduce ink, chemical, paper and electrical consumption.
