Excell Color Graphics Finds Single-Source Advantage in Heidelberg Solutions
“I’m looking forward to real-time feedback from Prinect Business Manager to help us understand where our volume is coming from,” he said. “We also operate a Kodak Nexpress, a Xerox 800 digital color press, and a Fuji Acuity wide-format, flatbed inkjet device. My sense is that we’re doing about 65-70 percent sheetfed offset, but I’d like to have more accurate information about volume, job costing, and other data.
“We’re going to start doing shop floor data collection with Prinect Business Manager by the Graph Expo rolls around,” Parrot added, “So things are moving right along. We’ll be a ‘Prinect power user’ one day. I’m looking forward to that.”
All This and Profit, Too
Already a dominant player in the Fort Wayne area, where it serves a variety of manufacturing, insurance and financial firms, as well as ad agencies, Excell is feeling confident enough these days to consider expanding into the statewide and regional marketplace.
In the meantime, Excell Color Graphics is relishing the first fruits of the upgrade it launched earlier in the year. ”
“We’ve done well in these crazy times, and we had a great reputation to start with,” Parrot acknowledged. “But there’s no doubt in my mind that Heidelberg equipment, workflow and consumables will make it easier for us to stay on top.”
With these new efficiencies in place, however, “Now we can satisfy our customers and make money,” he quipped.
