Ideal Printers Adds Two Océ Monochrome Printing SystemsSeptember 28, 2010
“The Océ machine is also very reliable, and this is one reason we have so many Océ systems in our digital center,” explained Vaughn. Ideal Printers has an Océ VarioStream® 7550 twin continuous feed system, an Océ VarioPrint 2110 cutsheet engine and now three engines from the Océ VarioPrint 6000 series. “Océ service is also outstanding. Their proactive approach keeps us up and running and increases our confidence in our ability to serve our customers,” he added. Uptime is consistently reliable across all the Océ cutsheet and continuous feed technology systems at Ideal Printers.
Strong black-and-white opportunity
In addition to the on-demand kitting applications, Ideal Printers provides short run black and white output for on demand books, forms and business collateral. “Demand for black and white output remains solid, with strong potential for more,” Vaughn noted. “Black and white printing retains its value because it’s used every day for many applications that make businesses run.” Current research indicates that, although the U.S. production printing and copying market is trending towards color, monochrome pages will still represent a substantial portion of printed materials in the future.
“Océ designed the Océ VarioPrint family to help commercial printers and graphic arts customers maximize the value in the black and white printing opportunity through reliability, migration path, and cost-efficiency,” Vaughn continued. “With black and white workflow enabled by Océ PRISMA software and automation, we can provide high caliber service to our customers.”
Océ supports customers’ business development needs
In addition to Océ printing systems and service, Vaughn and Ideal Printers has also benefited from attending the Océ Business Plan Workshop. Delivered in partnership with Winters Group and Associates, the workshop is part of the Océ Graphic Arts Professional Services portfolio. It is designed as an intensive one-day program to establish a business plan and strategy for service providers to begin the transformation to offering marketing services.
“This workshop was all about advancing our business model and offering sophisticated, systematic services to our clients. We explored strategies to win business from marketing executives by solving their business objectives. These workshops help make you aware of opportunities. Ideas come from both the Océ team, and other attendees, because we all have the same issues and goals,” said Vaughn.
“We are committed not just to providing the best equipment, but also helping our customers maximize the value of each system. We are committed to forming partnerships with our customers like Ideal Printers to help them take on new applications with productive, profitable results. We look at the total picture of each customer’s business and support them through our technology as well as our knowledge and experience. With this approach, we have helped many graphic arts customers grow their businesses,” said Eric DeGoeijen, Vice President, Marketing, Océ North America, Production Printing Systems division.
