Heidelberg’s event on 5 December will focus on its Prinect modules

Taking place from 10am to 3pm on Wednesday 5 December, the day will offer a mix of seminars, demonstrations and Q&A sessions and will cover MIS, automated pre-press production and integrated planning and analysis.

The event is not an open house but those interested in attending can contact their Heidelberg representative to express their interest and to see if spaces are still available. Prinect business driver Paul Chamberlain said previous events of this ilk have attracted between 38 to 50 people.

Covered topics will include Heidelberg’s Prinect Business Manager, Production Manager, Scheduler and Analyze Point modules.

“We will probably do a 20-minute full-blown presentation using all of those modules. Because they link automatically it’s difficult to see when you’re in Business Manager, Prepress Manager, Pressroom Manager and Analyze Point,” said Chamberlain.

“So we’ll have a steady progression on another screen of whereabouts we are and who’s using that, which is why we’ll have three different specialists talking about their bespoke area.

“After the presentation we’ll split up into smaller groups and have up to an hour in each room, where we can get under the bonnet and start to look into it in a bit more detail.”

Chamberlain described the format of the day as “more intimate than our open house events”.

“What we want to try and do is stimulate conversation – if you’re in a large seminar room with 50 to 100 people, nobody will put their hand up to ask questions whereas if you’re in a small room with nine or 10 people we can instigate these conversations and I think customers get a lot more out of it.”

He added: “We want to arm printers to cope with current trading conditions, which means shorter run lengths, faster turnaround times and increasing costs combined with declining print prices.

“Everyone has to be at maximum efficiency to optimise profits and we have the tools to do that, but workflow is key to unleashing the power of the press.”
