InfoPrint Showcases Solutions to Drive Customer Revenues

March 2009
PHILADELPHIA—March 30, 2009—InfoPrint Solutions Co., a joint venture between IBM and Ricoh, today announces its lineup of market-leading solutions for the commercial print industry to be shown at booth 1824# at OnDemand 2009, from March 30th to April 2nd 2009.
 
InfoPrint will showcase solutions from its comprehensive portfolio including its suite of TransPromo Solutions; Print On Demand (POD) technologies for high quality, high speed monochrome and color output to reduce book production costs and improve productivity; and Automated Document Factory (ADF), designed to solve the challenges of postal optimization and mailroom integrity.
 
These will run on InfoPrint printers such as the recently launched InfoPrint Pro C900. This color cutsheet platform bridges the mid-range gap between production machines such as the full-color drop-on-demand InfoPrint 5000 and monochrome InfoPrint 4100, and the company’s existing cutsheet portfolio. It also enables the creation of dynamic digital output which is ideal for in-plant and print-for-pay customers with monthly volumes of 50,000 to 240,000 pages. At OnDemand, the InfoPrint 100 will also be on display. This is one of InfoPrint’s latest continuous forms digital output solutions, providing high throughput and integrity for companies who print client invoices, direct marketing mailings, labels and distribution center picking slips.
 
“InfoPrint continues to work with our clients to bring them the offerings and information they need to grow revenues and respond to current market conditions, all while creating sustainable, cost-effective output,” said Sandra Zoratti, Vice President, Global Marketing Manager at InfoPrint. “Ensuring our clients are learning about the latest techniques is a key part of that drive. Through initiatives such as our Meet the Experts program, we continue to educate and promote innovative implementation techniques for today’s environment.”
 
InfoPrint’s Print On Demand (POD) workflow solution will be on show at GraphExpo 2009. This cover and book block workflow system includes web-to-print ordering, pre-press automation, imposition and output management. InfoPrint strategic partner iWay will demonstrate automated cover and book block flow, with imposition from Ultimate and scanning from IOFlex. This software is used in a production environment conjunction with machines such as the InfoPrint 4100, a continuous forms printer that produces high quality monochrome output that is typically only available using cutsheet solutions. The InfoPrint 4100 also delivers some of the highest speeds currently on the market for electrophotographic printers and allows for the production of more output with less operator time.
 
TransPromo is a key part of the InfoPrint portfolio and the OnDemand team will be showcasing the results of its successful implementations at one of the top US cable operators and leading hotel group, Best Western International. These campaigns showcase how recent innovations in the digital printing industry have set new standards in quality and affordability, and validate the fact that color and personalization added to bills and statements effectively enhances readability, and incites a response. InfoPrint’s team of TransPromo consultants will be on hand to discuss these implementations and the value of combining data analytics and customized content directly on monthly customer bills, using InfoPrint’s TransPromo calculator to demonstrate the return on investment the technique brings.
 
Other InfoPrint solutions on show include InfoPrint ProcessDirector (IPPD) with Mailroom Integrity and AFP editor for Windows, for basic Intelligent Mail(R) Barcode capability.
 
Meet the Experts Professional Services and Consulting Program
 
At OnDemand 2009, InfoPrint will host its popular “Meet the Experts” forum series. The Experts are members of InfoPrint’s Professional Services and Consulting teams who will be on hand at the show to help both existing and potential customers find a way to implement innovative industry techniques.
 
The forums at GraphExpo will focus on key solutions areas such as TransPromo with the workshop showcasing InfoPrint’s five-step approach to transitioning to this technique. This starts with an initial two-day workshop to clarify customers’ existing environment, requirements and initial roadmap. Subsequent steps include assessment time, a pilot phase, and then transition of applications to a TransPromo solution, with the final stage being implementation of enterprise level TransPromo.
