Labor and Data Requirements Are Driving Inkjet Adoption
With more than 350 attendees and sponsors, the seventh annual Inkjet Summit was a resounding success. This hosted event, which IT Strategies has chaired for the past six years, was a success because it brought out nearly 100 printing executives who had a strong interest in acquiring production inkjet presses, but had yet to buy one.
Tighter deadlines, shorter print runs and higher job frequencies are pushing print providers to look at inkjet technology even though for many a $1+ million investment remains daunting. But we’re reaching a stage where opposing forces, requiring more automation (and less labor) and a demand for more flexibility (to manage shorter and more frequent runs), demand investment.
