Second Screen Truepress Provides Disaster Insurance for Sebis Direct

February 5, 2013
BROOKLYN HEIGHTS, OH—February 5, 2013—Business continuity isn’t just another term for backup. Good business continuity plans keep a company operating through disruptive events, such as a flood or fire.

In the aftermath of a natural or man-made occurrence, Sebis Direct can ramp up full-color variable data printing at its satellite facility in Brooklyn Heights, OH. Sebis, a document management process outsource service bureau headquartered in Bedford Park, IL, kicked off 2013 with a new Screen Truepress Jet520 for its plant outside Cleveland. It is a mirror image of the inkjet web press already turning out compliant and transactional documents at Sebis’ suburban Chicago headquarters.

“Business continuity is absolutely essential for even holding a conversation with our customers and prospects,” said Wes Sanders, president. “The key is to have redundant capabilities in a facility that is far enough away from Chicago to be a complete disaster recovery/business continuity resource. The installation of the first Truepress Jet520 was so successful that we purchased an identical press for Cleveland.”

Barely nine months after Sebis began offering its customers a faster and more cost-effective method for generating bills, invoices, statements, policies and certificates with dynamic content and vibrant color, the company took delivery of the second Screen device.

“The Truepress Jet520 is the best overall configuration for us,” Sanders said. “The two devices give us a great deal of horsepower. Throughput at the Chicago plant is about 2.5 million impressions a day. Together, both presses will be able to produce 4.5 million impressions a day.”

Sanders established Sebis in 1989. The company long has relied on monochrome and color laser imagers. Sebis prints, finishes, assembles and delivers secure documents for the health care, insurance, government and utility sectors in 37 states and Canada. The Bedford Park location, which spans 70,000 square feet, operates around the clock, seven days a week.

With Hurricane Sandy shutting down large parts of New York and New Jersey, 2012 was a year to make anyone believe in disaster recovery. Sanders was ahead of the curve. Launched in 2010, the 65,000-square-foot Ohio site sits a safe distance 350 miles from the Illinois headquarters. Like the main plant, document production takes place in a highly secure environment, with access controls, camera systems and emergency power generation.

With the addition of the new Truepress Jet520, the Ohio facility can print static content, variable data and full-color graphics in one pass directly onto blank paper rolls instead of onto preprinted shells. The press instantly accommodates document revisions. Color elements can change completely from page to page.
