O’Neil Data Systems: Living Up to Its Name
When it comes to printing, in addition to the T300, the company also has a cutsheet HP Indigo 5000 digital color press and a webfed HP Indigo model. An Océ VarioPrint 6250 cutsheet printer completes the current digital press lineup. There is also a traditional offset pressroom running both sheetfed and web equipment.
The HP Indigos are used primarily for short-run color projects and covers. O'Neil also runs Teslin through these presses to produce extremely durable ID cards. Teslin is a synthetic material used as the core of the card, which is then laminated with polyester on both sides.
The bindery at O'Neil houses equipment for a variety of finishing options. Capabilities include perfect binding, saddlestitching and mechanical binding such as GBC, wire binding and more. All of the postpress machines and inserters are equipped with barcode scanners for tight quality control.
Mailing the wrong statement, ID card or benefit plan to someone would be disastrous. The quality control also has to be granular. For example, personalized membership ID cards for a husband and wife have to be married and inserted into the correct envelope or kit.
The company's warehousing and distribution services are also comprehensive. Thousands of orders are processed per day from customized kitting, pick-and-pack and complex variable packaging, using high-end, intelligent inserting equipment. Since O'Neil's volume of mail is enormous, post office trailers remain parked at the loading dock and are then picked up as needed.
Rosson explains that all of these capabilities, which start with ONEsuite and end at the loading dock, are designed to support every touch point that O'Neil clients have with their own customers. "In healthcare, for example, we support both pre- and post-sales materials. Before the sale, we send out marketing materials and plan comparisons. And, after the sale, we handle the ID cards, plan booklets or any other compliance-driven communication."
