“We are delighted to host Performance Accelerate 2005 for the graphic arts industry in the UAE. Xerox Digital Printing Presses and Freeflow solutions allow print service providers across the globe to accelerate their performance and drive new digital applications that expand opportunities and deliver greater revenues and profits. These solutions simply enable the users to accelerate workflow to improve operational efficiencies, enable more jobs, reduce costs and expand their business,” said Andrew Hurt, General Manager, Xerox Emirates.
According to Ayman Mattar, Marketing Manager, Xerox Emirates stated that “In partnership with industry-leading prepress professional, Xerox has developed their Freeflow unified offset and digital workflow – a unique workflow which allows print providers to seamlessly integrate Xerox digital printing equipment into their existing workflows. By directing and submitting jobs to a digital press from an offset prepress system, print providers can now expand into new and profitable printing areas leveraged by the unique capabilities of digital printing”.
“This results in improved job turnaround, more efficient workflows and increased production options; reduced cost and waste by printing on demand and to the most appropriate printing press; increased product offerings with variable data printing capabilities; expanded opportunities by enabling web-driven job submission and short run digital production adding the value of personalisation,” added Mr. Mattar.
