Tessitura Philosophy

Why Tessitura?

In a singer, the tessitura is the area of the vocal range that is usable for musical expression. We focus what we do precisely on the area that gives you the most benefit.

Tessitura in Italian means tying, braiding, weaving. We link your requirements with our Software solutions and are also available to advise you when it comes to company-wide changes.

We see ourselves as bridge builders and link your processes intelligently so that they become efficient and usable for your future: bridging together.

Tessitura and Steuber.
Just good friends.

"Integrated systems that enable automated processes are another feature with which the Steuber Group wants to shape the future," says Stephan Steuber, Managing Partner.
In 2021, therefore, a new milestone has been set with Tessitura GmbH.

We accompany our customers from the Process analysis to the successful implementation of the change," says Markus Morawe, Managing Director of the company.

Among other things, our workflow system offers ODEON the users flow-controlled process automation, a Real-time monitoring of all production-relevant data and a Planning frontendwhich supports the machine operator in handling his jobs. For older machines, the Tessitura offers with BADGER an automation-ready kit to integrate them into the existing machine park.

Stephan Eckner

Stephan is Technical Director and Product Developer at Tessitura. He is 50 years old and lives in Münsterland. He learned his profession as a data processing clerk at an Agfa system house before gaining 18 years of experience in production in the printing industry. This primarily included the development and management of prepress as well as the management of the printing, quality management and information technology departments.

His main focus is on system connectivity, automation and process optimisation in these areas. The disillusionment arising from experience and difficulties on the one hand and the needs of printers on the other in these subject areas finally led to the fundamental idea of a platform-neutral Middleware Systems. This was the basic idea for ODEON born.
