ROCHESTER, NY—August 7, 2006—A desire to enhance his company’s productivity led Kamron Motamedi, president of American Printing and Copy, to install a trio of Kodak solutions. Motamedi selected Kodak Prinergy Evo News software, a Kodak Magnus 400 platesetter and the Matchprint Inkjet 9800 proofing solution to advance his time to press and grow his business.
“We needed to improve our speed to press because that’s where we make our money,” explained Motamedi. “After a thorough review of different technologies and multiple vendors, Kodak became the single choice because they offered the best products in all three categories — workflow, proofing and computer to plate.”
Kodak Prinergy Evo software is an affordable PDF based, end to end workflow that increases efficiency and reduces the cost of production. An intuitive interface makes it easy to use.
This scaleable workflow solution that can grow with customer expansion anchors Motamedi’s new productivity tools. He selected Prinergy Evo software because of “superior function, ease of operation and power.” The Prinergy Evo system’s primary feature is an end to end native PDF workflow, with JDF import and export for system integration and information exchange, as well as flexible connectivity to output devices.
Further improving American Printing and Copy’s turnaround capability is the Magnus 400 platesetter, which saves Motamedi significant time when dealing with complicated jobs or last minutes client changes and plate remakes.
“The Magnus 400 platesetter is so much faster than our previous system. For example, on difficult jobs, our pressman used to wait a couple of hours for the plates to image. Now we’re talking minutes, which is an incredible reduction,” explained Motamedi. “We also save significant time with last minute client changes. Instead of sending a customer home while we remake his or her plates, we can get the new plates produced while they grab a cup of coffee.”
