Heidelberg USA is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Mark Bohan as Director of Prinect and CtP. Bohan joined Heidelberg last November as a Business Consultant. In his new role, Bohan will report directly to Andy Rae, Senior Vice President of Equipment and Marketing.
“Based on Mark’s broad industry and consulting experience, and Prinect being the complete business process control workflow, it makes perfect sense to bring the two together,” said Rae. “With the most productive equipment, and the only end-to-end workflow system in the industry, Mark and his team are looking forward to delivering a high degree of customer benefit and satisfaction with Prinect.”
Dr. Mark Bohan brings 25 years of experience in the graphic communications industry. Prior to joining Heidelberg, he served for 11 years as Vice President, Technology and Research at Printing Industries of America, the world’s largest graphic arts trade association. Throughout his experience, Bohan has established a deep understanding of the business and technology drivers for companies through consulting and research, driving revenue growth.
“Heidelberg has unique, proven solutions with Prinect providing the framework for process automation and fact-based decision making,” said Dr. Bohan. “As we move forward, I am excited about the new developments and continual improvement as we implement company-wide solutions that will impact the commercial positioning of our customers.”
The Next Level — Industry 4.0
Prinect received much praise at drupa as Heidelberg’s front-to-back business process system, streamlining everything from receipt of customer file and the presetting of equipment through to full production data analysis to ensure cost rates are correct and maintained. Prinect brings that analysis full circle by minimizing touch points and automating processes.
“With print becoming increasingly industrialized, printers are taking production, business analytics and decision making to the next level,” said Dr. Bohan. “To achieve such levels of output, you need a fully connected and integrated manufacturing workflow, with software being the foundation and core of a successful business operation.”
Under the banner of Industry 4.0, Heidelberg has shown that the most productive, efficient and accurately monitored businesses earn the highest profit margins. For printer’s today, knowing the true costs of production and true potential output capacity is paramount to driving business results.
“With our industry leading solutions in MIS, CtP, production workflow and color management, the focus is to deliver true business benefits to customers who invest in process workflow,” said Rae. “These benefits are closely aligned to maximizing production output, minimizing the cost of production per 1000 sheets and improving users’ experience of technical software.”
