We’ve now invested in the new Prinect workflow and Tharstern MIS upgrades which we believe will give us a 10 to 15% improvement in productivity and also pave the way for our web-to-print portal which will be released in February this year.

Our Studio Manager Dave Witherden has monitored Prinect since its launch and he’s delighted with the decision. Dave and Production Manager Steve Omer undertook a two-stage training programme during the installation and integration period.

“We can seamlessly integrate Prinect with the latest Tharstern MIS modules and we’ll be able to quickly and easily output to both our Speedmaster SM 74-10-P and our Xerox iGen presses,” says Steve. “The increase in productivity this’ll give us means our customers will benefit from quicker turnarounds immediately and when we implement the web portal, customers will receive proofs quickly and accurately and be able to amend and return them more easily. We’ll also offer templates to those wanting to load jobs online.”

We have also switched our plates supply from Kodak to Heidelberg.
