COVID-19 has reshaped how brands communicate with consumers in profound ways, and inkjet is, in many ways, perfectly positioned to be the technology that helps them reconnect in very personal, meaningful ways, especially when it comes to direct mail.

Closing out the opening-day sessions of the Virtual Inkjet Summit 2020 was a panel of printers, all sharing why they choose to adopt inkjet, how they went about integrating it into their business models, and what they learned along the way.

The printer's role in the world of data is growing more fundamental than just doing a bit of cleansing. Marketing lists, the segmentation, interpretation, profiling and analysis of data - these are things that printers are going to need to understand.
