InfoPrint Solutions Drives Color Printing Adoption to Mid-Market
BOULDER, CO—January 27, 2009—InfoPrint Solutions Co., a joint venture between IBM and Ricoh, today announced it is launching its high-speed digital color cutsheet solution for the mid-market, the InfoPrint Pro C900. This adds to its portfolio of digital color printers driving the continual growth of color across enterprises of all sizes.
The InfoPrint Pro C900 is ideal for commercial printers, data centers and in-plant customers with monthly volumes of 50,000 to 240,000 pages. This new color printer fills a gap between larger continuous forms production machines and smaller volume cutsheet solutions, opening up high quality color capability to a new customer segment. The InfoPrint Pro C900 will produce a wide variety of output, including Print on Demand (POD) manuals and books. It will also enable marketing initiatives like direct mail and TransPromo; which involve printing personalized communications, such as statements and bills.
The InfoPrint Pro C900 is currently in beta testing across several sites, including the French commercial printer d'Haussy, a direct mail specialist.
“We are looking to help our clients drive value from every communication with their customers, and the InfoPrint Pro C900 is the next step in enabling us to do just that,” said M. Roquette, CEO of d'Haussy. “Not only can we now bring extra value to our own customers, we have a future proof solution that will allow us to be more flexible.”
Initial shipments of the printer-only version are available in North America and EMEA* on February 13, 2009 with additional countries to follow. The multifunctional printer (MFP) version of the InfoPrint Pro C900 will be available in the second quarter 2009 with additional finishing options. Pricing is available upon request. Customers will also benefit from the support of InfoPrint’s global maintenance and services teams, designed to enable consistently maintained and available print operations. InfoPrint has more than 1,000 service and maintenance specialists in 36 territories around the world.
