I learned three key things from representing RSA at our third thINK conference:
- Inkjet is gaining momentum in cut sheet and continuous feed, offering better output quality, a wider media range and increased press speeds. For example, Canon introduced the new Oce’ VarioPrint i-series+ at thINK. The Canon Solutions America press release states that it is “Redefining sheetfed inkjet expectations by empowering customers to print high-quality graphic arts applications with a large color gamut on a wide range of standard offset coated media.” Moving to inkjet and applications made possible with inkjet brings me to the second thing that I learned.
- Managing multiple workflows continues to be a challenge for corporate print centers and commercial printers. Print shops receive jobs in an almost unlimited number of ways, in different file types, different data streams and different ticketing formats. Streamlining print operations and having each job print in the most productive and cost-effective way is challenging. Solutions like QManager for PRISMAsynch™ (output management) provide a single point to receive, manage, ticket, and optimize jobs; integrate your inkjet devices into existing workflows; and efficiently route output to all production equipment. Now more than ever, it’s important to have workflow software that can operate across this broad spectrum.
- Corporate print centers are seeking growth by increasing the offerings they provide their customers. Wide format, signs, and variable applications are all key areas that corporate print centers are looking at adding or increasing to offer more to customers. A Web to print solution like WebCRD with ImpactVDP can facilitate that growth and increase productivity by printing directly to legacy and current production printers regardless of manufacturer or if the press is toner-based or Inkjet.
Contact the RSA team to learn how you can automate and streamline your workflow and send fully ticketed jobs to all production printers, including inkjet devices.
