Weymouth, MA - InfoTrends has expanded its Ultimate Guide Online to include a guide for cut-sheet digital printing devices that details product specifications for over 160 cut-sheet devices. The Ultimate Guide Online, a series of databases for comparing hardware and software tools, offers free basic access to print and marketing service providers.
The Ultimate Guide Online enables side-by-side comparisons of device features that can be exported to a spreadsheet or for print out. Each guide includes information on products across all leading brands and offers an unbiased, third-party analysis from InfoTrends' analysts, with real-time updates as the market evolves. Using this tool can cut months of research time when evaluating equipment and software purchases.
Ultimate Guide users can choose from basic or premium access. Basic access is free and offers intelligence on technology type, resolution, speed, list price, and more. Premium access pumps up functionality to offer detailed information on paper handling, substrate support, print engine specifics, options, front ends, workflows, and more; this option also includes a SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) analysis for each device.
"In the print industry, purchasing the right equipment is vital to the success of your business," commented Jim Hamilton, a Group Director at InfoTrends. "The Ultimate Guide Online provides all of the information you need to make the right decision, and it is presented in a way that makes it easy to evaluate a wide range of products."
Ultimate Guides are currently available for Cut-Sheet Devices, Enterprise TransPromo, Multi-Channel Communications, Variable Data Publishing, and Web-to-Print solutions. Ultimate Guides for roll-fed and wide format digital devices will be available later this year.
