HP Launches ‘GO Digital’ Tour to Help Customers Capture Business Success
PALO ALTO, CA—December 5, 2006—In support of the company’s “Capture Business Success” program, HP today announced a new four-month, 12-city U.S. tour focused on helping commercial, quick and franchise print service providers (PSPs) get on the fast track to new and growing profit opportunities in digital printing.
Beginning December 12 in Dallas, the tour will feature in-depth discussions of how digital technologies – such as HP’s flagship digital press, the HP Indigo press 5000 – are generating more sales with more profitable rates of return for printers and their customers. The seminars are open to existing HP Indigo customers as well as PSPs interested in learning more about the benefits of digital printing.
“Our Capture Business Success program is 100% focused on enhancing the capabilities of our customers to target the new, profitable applications that are rewriting the rules of successful marketing,” said Francis McMahon, director of marketing, Graphic Arts Organization, HP. “Many of our customers are no longer limited to a single, static, medium; they are selling marketing services that include personalization, web development, fulfillment and more, and the deeper integration they make as marketing service providers is one of the big trends driving overall industry growth.”
Several HP Indigo press 5000 customers who are also HP Indigo Premier Accounts and members of the Digital Solutions Cooperative (Dscoop) users group are speaking at the GO Digital series. Some of the sessions will be held on-site at HP Indigo customers’ printing facilities.
In addition to the customer presentations, the GO Digital series will focus on value-add applications including technologies and media selections that enhance print service providers’ end-to-end capabilities in variable-data printing. Partners participating in the GO Digital seminar series include:
Printable Technologies, which provides “Software as a Service” – including web-to-print and VDP – for the graphic arts industry
