Known as MAPPING for the last 20 years, the company has now become the MAPPING Group with a view to distinguishing the Printing division from the Retail & Customer Relations division.
The activities of the newborn MAPPING Group are now clearly divided into two separate entities: MAPPING Suite as the output management solution and MAXXING as the customer relations solution. With a different range of products and different markets, we felt we had to clarify both our solution offering and internal structure.
