  • Putting the customer at the center

    An interview with the Managing Director of Enfocus
    Some of our members may be aware of changes at Enfocus during this year. As change happens, staff turnover occurs and some new faces emerge. Such has been the case at Enfocus, however the one constant is their ongoing customer support, evident on PrintPlanet posts and by their own, internal customer support. At PRINT-17, our staff had the chance to meet the new Managing Director, Wim Fransen, and discuss his customer-centric focus.

    No stranger to the industry, Fransen worked with Enfocus’ parent company, Esko, for 22 years prior to joining Enfocus this July. We found him to be quite knowledgeable about the nuts & bolts of Pitstop and Switch. This is not surprising since previously, he was Esko’s director of Interactive Applications Software Products, where he headed a team of managers and engineers for packaging design and pre-production applications.

    Fransen related that PRINT was a fantastic opportunity to meet customers and partners, and proved to be the perfect place to kick off their customer-centric focus. “Visitors to our booth really want to build a personal relationship and look us in the eye—trust is the essence. Whether we were talking to the press, influencers, customers or prospects, we put all our cards on the table—no hidden agenda. This paid off at PRINT: the conviviality at the booth spoke volumes. It was time well spent, and allowed a deeper understanding of customer needs.”

    Printers need to continually produce high-quality output and use solutions that provide the most efficient uptime and maximize profit. To this end, Pitstop has added features that allow a user to establish action lists for a specific customer or a particular job. This is an intelligent form of PDF that acts as a Quality Control tool that can automatically make corrections. Switch also has additional features and is fully capable of integrating with other workflow and MIS tools. Fransen says, “We invested heavily in demos at the show and our integration partners were on-hand to show customers key features for tailoring to their own, individual needs.”

    About PRINT-17, Fransen continued, “It was a great atmosphere, and judging by the feedback we received, our industry reputation and our level of quality has been fully endorsed.” After the show, he will visit customers at their plants to learn more about their needs.

    Not only tech savvy, Fransen is also very personable. He told us that his experience and knowledge will help drive innovation and development across Enfocus products.

    • An under-the-radar flight pattern for MCS Inc.
      MyWildIrishProse
      by Sean O’Leary

      The first thing Glenn Toole said to me was “We change our world every 4 - 5 years and if we don’t we’re not moving ahead.”

      It was just last week that your PrintPlanet reporter stopped by MCS, Inc.’s Bolingbrook, IL National Demonstration Facility for a follow up chat with Glenn Toole, Vice President Sales & Marketing. This trip was sort of a continuation of a brief Print ’17 booth visit, after which I had been dogged by a feeling that there was more...

    • Seeking Full Disclosure: Who was Underwhelmed by PRINT 17?
      noelward
      By Noel Ward, Editor@Large

      Trying not to be snarkier than usual, I look back on four days at PRINT 17, remembering what it once looked like, thinking about what many I spoke with said about the show, and wondering what universe NPES lives in when they say this show went well.

      To be sure, the educational sessions, on the floor and in meeting rooms, were very good. These are one of the prime reasons for attending a trade show and anyone who goes to a show without taking advantage...

    • Short-Run Rotary Die-Cutting: More Value and More Margin
      MyWildIrishProse
      By Richard Romano, Industry Analyst

      Printing today is about more than ink on paper. In fact, even saying “ink on paper” is an anachronism, given the bewildering variety of substrates that today’s equipment can print on. Today’s print customers are increasingly looking for ways for what they produce to stand out from other printed items, either in customers’ mailboxes, on store shelves, or any other environment where printed materials are jostling for attention. To that end,...

      "What do you want the job to look like, where is it going and what are the rules for mapping out of gamut colors?"

      Sean O’Leary
      Chief Technology Officer | Print Planet

      I was recently involved in producing case studies documenting a half dozen large commercial printers’ installations of high speed production inkjet printers. The featured inkjet models were built by Xerox, Fuji, Ricoh, HP, Konica-Minolta and other major manufacturers and they had been installed...

    • Noodling with Job Planning and Imposition Software
      MyWildIrishProse
      By Richard Romano, Industry Analyst

      I once bought a pasta maker. It seemed like a good idea at the time. I mean, I like pasta (it’s part of the heritage, after all!), and fresh, restaurant-quality pasta is one of life’s great delights. However, since I do not actually run a restaurant, the pasta maker ended up being more trouble than it was worth. From all the prep work it takes to make the dough to put into the thing, to the elaborate clean-up required, it turned out that just...
