Last month, Canon Solutions America sponsored a Book Business webinar entitled Inkjet: The Implications for Book Printing Manufacturers and Publishers. InfoTrends’ Barb Pellow and Jim Hamilton, who were guest speakers, discussed how high-speed inkjet technology for book printers has already had a profound business impact for adopters. Throughout the webinar, the audience was encouraged to submit questions to the InfoTrends panelists.
What do you get when you bring together print providers, industry analysts and vendors for three days to talk about the future of the printing industry? One of the most beneficial, productive and exciting events of the year, the Inkjet Summit.
One of the challenges with selecting a workflow solution for print is that specific tasks and processes that have to be managed and ideally, automated for different segments of the print industry are strikingly different. Jobs flow differently in commercial print shops than they do in high-volume transactional operations, direct mail houses, service bureaus or CRDs/copy shops in enterprise environments. The work is different, the flow is different and that means the workflow solution must be different as well, doesn’t it?
