While the summer holiday season may be over, Xeretec’s beach-themed stand was the place to visit at this year’s Print Show. In an exciting first for the company, Xeretec’s stand included large format devices from HP following Xeretec’s recent acquisition of the Landscape Group. Additionally, in conjunction with partners Xerox, EFI, Infigo Software and XMPie, Xeretec demonstrated how it can help businesses successfully get to their next business destination. Xeretec showed how its experienced print consultants, combined with market-leading solutions and services from its partners, meet the changing requirements for print, ranging from variable data printing to web to print.
The leading-edge solutions shown on Xeretec’s stand included the recently-launched Xerox Versant 180, the Xerox Versant 3100 and the HP DesignJet Z5600PS. In addition, Xeretec demonstrated how its solutions can simplify personalised digital print by showcasing the Web-2-Print from Infigo Software to capture information and then print effortlessly on the Xerox Versant.
Dave Lanning, Sales Director, Landscape Printing Systems Limited, stated: “HP Platinum Partners Landscape Printing Systems is proud to be exhibiting this year at The Print Show as part of the Xeretec Group. Landscape is one of the UK’s foremost and dedicated HP large format resellers, one of only four UK PageWide XL Partners and market leaders in managed print solutions with 21 years industry experience. Our graphics specialists will be demonstrating affordable, versatile and innovative express printing solutions for independent print service providers, enabling growth by saving time and resources by simplifying print workflows.”
From Infigo Software, visitors to the Xeretec stand also saw two new game-changing integrations. The first is Enfocus PitStop which delivers a new level of automated artwork management that revolutionises processes involved in producing print ready files within one workflow, reducing hours of manual work. The second is with Tharstern, which delivers an industry first in real-time, on-demand estimating, which will change the way printers do business.
Douglas Gibson, Managing Director at Infigo Software, said: “In order to differentiate our proposition, we’ve focused on developing value-added partnerships, integrations and product enhancements with the customer experience at the heart. We can be flexible and dynamic because we own and write the code to our software and so can flex to meet individual client needs – which we believe is essential for today’s dynamic customers. We’re excited to be working with Xeretec to show how together our solutions make success easier for clients.”
EFI demonstrated its new user interface to the Fiery®, called Fiery Command WorkStation (CWS) 6, which was launched globally in August. Xeretec also set up a workflow using Fiery JobFlow™, combining with a Fiery JobMaster™. “EFI and Xeretec have shared a strong and fruitful partnership for over a decade. This continued success stems from a common passion of supporting businesses to thrive and further push the boundaries in the digital printing world. We are happy to stand side by side with Xeretec this year at the Print Show", stated Terry Garvey, Partner Alliance Director at EFI.
Commenting on its presence at the Print Show, Adam Gibbons, Group Managing Director, Xeretec Group, said: “2017 has been a formidable year for Xeretec and its customers. Our presence at The Print Show is a fantastic opportunity to show not just how our solutions resolve print pain points today, but how they can grow and adapt as a business requires, bringing real substance to our claims that we take a long term and flexible view of our customers and their ever changing print needs. The beach theme is fun, but the message behind it is serious – working with Xeretec means you can relax where your print requirements are concerned.”
