“Historically operating essentially as an exclusive black and white provider, our recent purchase of the VarioPrint i300 has expanded our offerings into a world of color that was once not a significant part of our portfolio,” said Mark Depperschmidt, CIO and VP of DMP BPO. “The i300 inkjet technology is allowing us to expand into new markets while also giving us the ability to expand on what we currently do, most notably by adding color to our transactional print jobs. It also provides us the ability to eliminate overprinting preprinted forms and better facilitate our clients’ transition to color statements and transpromo initiatives.”
Much of what led Depperschmidt and his team to the i300 was the realization that many of his team’s color-oriented jobs were being outsourced as their toner technology onsite was not capable of meeting certain requirements.
“Transitioning from a mostly toner operation to inkjet has dramatically reduced our costs while not sacrificing quality for our valued customers,” added Depperschmidt. “Working with Canon Solutions America has enabled us to take advantage of the many benefits of inkjet while the i300 has provided us with seamless operational efficiencies.”
Additionally, with the Océ VarioPrint i-series, DMP BPO can now consolidate sheetfed black and white, highlight color, and full-color digital workflows into one production printing system.
“Color is key, but as important is color consistency,” said Francis McMahon, executive vice president, Production Print Solutions, Canon Solutions America. “For great and valued customers like DMP BPO, realizing the initial benefits of color and its consistency is just the beginning of the journey. Once print providers are able to upgrade monochrome to higher-margin color, bottom lines can be directly influenced thus allowing for expansive business growth.”
