Wednesday, March 11, 2015

Melville, NY - The SpencerMetrics system, a measurement and analysis tool that provides real-time data measuring digital-press productivity, will be installed by Quad/Graphics, Inc., to help increase productivity.

SpencerMetrics’ efficient shop floor data collection, centralized data storage and analysis, and real-time, intuitive productivity intelligence reporting will enable Quad/Graphics, a leading global printer and multichannel solutions provider, to make proactive process improvements for key parts of its current digital print platform, enhancing its ability to serve customers.

Quad/Graphics plans to install the SpencerMetrics system on a variety of digital presses in many of its U.S. direct mail, commercial & specialty and publications production plants. The SpencerMetrics system works with any digital press regardless of make, model, or type, so technologically diverse printing companies such as Quad/Graphics are able to realize operational efficiencies across their platforms. The system’s cloud-based architecture allows real-time analysis at each print site as well as on- demand analysis for the entire platform.

“We are thrilled that industry leader Quad/Graphics recognizes the value of SpencerMetrics, and will deploy it within their digital platform,” noted David Spencer, President/CEO.

“We look forward to using SpencerMetrics data-based analyses to enhance digital printing operations, supporting our continuous improvement efforts in the plants that will use the system,” said Mike Stark, Quad/Graphics Director of Continuous Improvement. “We particularly appreciate its scalability, depth of analysis and ease-of-use.”
