Heidelberg USA recently hosted an open house at Print Media Center Atlanta (PMC ATL) to demonstrate the impact Prinect has on the efficiency of print shops.
Smart Print Shop of the Future
This one-day event focused on how Prinect is driving the Smart Print Shop of the Future by improving operational results through higher productivity and quality, which ultimately leads to increased profitability for users. With multiple seminars on the different aspects of Prinect, the event helped customers recognize how Heidelberg’s business intelligence platform and integrated workflow can optimize job management, increase productivity and reduce errors, create closer relationships with customers, increase sales conversion rates, and minimize inventory.
Prinect automates multiple processes and brings transparency to them. This allows the customer to analyze and optimize workflows based on precisely collected data, giving customers a competitive edge.
“The customer reaction and feedback was outstanding! The event showcased how the full capabilities of Prinect workflow, including our own Business Manager MIS, help maximize productivity and, most importantly, the profitability of our customers,” said Mark Bohan, Director of Prinect and CtP for Heidelberg USA. “It is about the complete print facility and providing solutions that integrate to create seamless production— leveraging all the advantages of Heidelberg equipment, consumables, service and workflow in harmony.”
One-Day Event Filled with Prinect
Kicking off the event was a presentation from Anthony Thirlby, Prinect General Manager Worldwide, who explained why operating a Smart Print Shop and embracing the latest technology advancements are critical to a printer’s future success.
The event then moved into small groups to discuss three different topics: 1) how Prinect automation eliminates steps to help save time and costs, 2) the enhanced gains to the business workflow through MIS and 3) improved communication and transparency with the customers and staff. The groups rejoined for a session on Prinect Business Intelligence, which links and visualizes business and production data, allowing users to make informed business decisions. The experience was then put together in a live demonstration on press showing how Prinect facilitates Heidelberg’s “Push to Stop” printing technology with three fully autonomous jobs and then showed the data that can be obtained during production.
“Impressive and Eye-Opening”
“The energy of the Heidelberg Crew was so inspiring, and I enjoyed meeting other colleagues in my industry,” said Jessica Gutowski Slayton, Director of Community Relations at Swift Printing and Communications, Inc. in Grand Rapids, Michigan. “Anthony didn’t disappoint as the keynote speaker! After the event, my mind was blown away with how easy it was to use Prinect. Clearly, Heidelberg has thought through every aspect of Prinect to make it as user friendly as possible.”
“As always, Heidelberg held an impressive and eye-opening event,” said Mike Stoughton, Vice President of Stoughton Printing in City of Industry, California. “Prinect software helps us increase productivity by reducing touch points and decreasing turnaround time. Based on what we learned at the Prinect Open House, we have more experience and knowledge of the software to better achieve some of these goals.”
