HIFLEX recognized for its contribution to education
HIFLEX receives the Clemson Corporate Appreciation Award for contributions that the MIS & Web2Print software provider has made to the University's graphic communications program. Clemson students have been exploring the concepts of advanced MIS systems and automated JDF workflow, a subject rarely taught in educational institutions through their work with a HIFLEX Management Information System (MIS) that was installed last year.
"Corporate partners such as HIFLEX are vital to our students' success. Because of their involvement with our graphic communications program, our students graduate with the skills they need to be valuable to the marketplace from day one," said College of Business and Behavioral Science dean Claude Lilly. "We are grateful to HIFLEX not only for their support, but also for their vision for education and its impact on the graphics industry."
