InfoPrint Solutions Unveils Workflow Output Optimization Consulting Services

Companies Can Leverage Services to Improve Efficiency and Productivity, Even in the Most Challenging Environments

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwire - September 28, 2010) -  InfoPrint Solutions Company, a Ricoh company, today launched its Output Optimization Consulting Service supporting customer needs in production printing environments. This new offering leverages the company's expertise in print workflow development to help customers build more efficient, more productive and, ultimately, more competitive print environments.

Built upon more than 20 years of experience and hundreds of worldwide customer deployments, InfoPrint Solutions' Output Optimization Consulting Services offers specific industry knowledge and expertise enabling customers to address compliance, quality and potential gaps in new capabilities, while decreasing their overall spend.

Through a comprehensive analysis, InfoPrint Solutions' Professional Services experts help customers identify, prioritize and solve many of the biggest challenges in print-to-mail environments. In one recent example, InfoPrint Solutions identified more than $1 million in annual postal savings for a customer by applying logic that directly submits the most qualified mail to the United States Postal Service (USPS), while sending the lesser qualified mail to a pre-sort vendor. By evaluating an organization's environment and infrastructure, the Output Optimization consultants at InfoPrint Solutions help customers improve tracking and reconciliation, maintain confidentiality and optimize the entire print-to-mail process.

The Output Optimization Consulting Service includes:

  • Identification of client goals and objectives
  • Thorough evaluation of current and desired environment
  • Detailed gap analysis
  • Technology recommendations
  • RFI and RFP assistance and management
  • Formal review and recommendations, including roadmap, technology and process implementations, as applicable
  • Best practices reviews and comparisons

InfoPrint Solutions has always served as a trusted advisor to its customers. It has helped define the transaction print production space beginning with its development of the Advanced Function Presentation (AFP) architecture in 1984, and holds more than 200 industry patents.

"Today many companies are seeking ways to improve print quality, better plan for capacity and adhere to new compliance and capability offerings, yet they often lack the industry knowledge to identify the best path to success -- InfoPrint Solutions shows them that path," said Humberto Prospero, Director of Consulting Services for InfoPrint Solutions. "We're committed to helping our customers leverage the best hardware, software and services to build an optimal printing and production environment that is effective, cost efficient and competitive -- offering greater market share and revenue."

InfoPrint Solutions' Output Optimization Consulting Services are a natural extension of its open and scalable Automated Document Factory (ADF) workflow platform, which provides customers with the flexibility needed to respond to the changing needs of their customers and business. An IDC survey released earlier this year found that 68 percent of respondents receive their ADF solutions from InfoPrint Solutions1, showcasing the company's market leadership and industry expertise.
