HP Details Replacement Digital Press Installations
PALO ALTO, CA—Dec. 8, 2009—HP today announced a number of competitive replacement sales in the second half of 2009 as a result of the advantages HP offers, including the high reliability, total cost of ownership value, end-to-end productivity and the offset-quality imaging of HP Indigo press technology.
Print service providers (PSPs) from across the United States chose HP solutions such as the HP Indigo 7000 Digital Press and the HP Indigo press 5500 instead of renewing leases on digital presses from other manufacturers. Joining the group of PSPs switching to HP were firms that continue to have some competitive solutions but have added HP Indigo presses to produce their highest-quality digital print products.
“HP’s commitment to customer success leads us to deliver not only superior production solutions, but also the reliability, service and consultative relationship PSPs need to achieve profitable growth,” said Jan Riecher, vice president and general manager, Graphics Solutions Business – Americas, HP. “Industry professionals are opting to move essential digital print operations to HP to achieve a competitive advantage.”
More uptime means more profit opportunities
Bennett Graphics in Tucker, GA, switched to HP Indigo after encountering significant issues with uptime using a three-year-old digital press from another manufacturer. Since installing the HP Indigo 7000 Digital Press last summer, Bennett Graphics has benefited from reliable, consistent productivity, as well as the true look and feel of offset that comes from HP Indigo’s use of liquid inks instead of the dry toners used on competing electrophotographic presses.
“Digital printing is a vital part of what Bennett Graphics delivers to meet clients’ communications needs; and high uptime, reliability, offset quality and support from our equipment partner are essential in today’s market,” said David Bennett, owner, Bennett Graphics. “HP came out on top in terms of equipment and in the way they work with us as a customer – not only does the Indigo 7000 give us outstanding quality printing, HP’s attention and diligence gives us the confidence of knowing HP will be an integral part of the future success at Bennett Graphics.”
