CreoScitex Targets Small to Midsized Printers with Affordable Solutions
Press release from the issuing company
CHICAGO- Sept. 6, 2001--CreoScitex, a division of Creo Products Inc., announces new solutions aimed at providing world-class workflow and imaging products --affordably -- to general commercial printers employing 10 to 20 people.
CreoScitex also provides consumables and financial services that give printers a reasonably priced route to CreoScitex quality and performance, and to the best support network in the industry.
"At CreoScitex, our desire is to give all printers a fair chance of competing and winning, using the best possible tools that have been affordable only to our larger customers,'' said Amos Michelson, Chief Executive Officer, Creo Products Inc., parent company of CreoScitex. "Today we are launching new products, systems and services designed specifically for the broad-market commercial printer.''
New Computer-to-plate Opportunity
The CreoScitex solutions for success include thermal computer-to-plate (CTP) systems that offer a low-cost entry for printers who wish to introduce CTP to their business. An upgrade path ensures that investments made today retain their value into the future when the printers may choose to upgrade to systems with more automation and SQUAREspot(TM) thermal imaging heads for higher productivity and consistent quality through sharper imaging.
New Easy Access to Leading Workflow Systems
PrinergyEntro and Brisque(TM) Entro workflow are new introductory models of the industry-leading workflow products. These systems provide "core'' workflow solutions that allow users to select the modules they need and then add more extensive capabilities to the system as their business needs grow. These cost-effective solutions enable the entire range of commercial printers with 4-and 8-up CTP solutions to benefit from the productivity, ease of use and networking capabilities of the Prinergy and Brisque families of workflow products.
New Affordable Consumables with CreoScitex Reliability
CreoScitex has just completed agreements with several media manufacturers in order to supply CreoScitex customers with a complete offering of equipment, service, consumables and financial services. This benefits CreoScitex customers with an easy, affordable package that comes with the assurance of CreoScitex quality. "CreoScitex will lead and work with these consumables partners but will not abandon our position on supporting all media on our systems,'' says Larry Letteney, President, CreoScitex America. "We will continue to do business in ways that benefit the best interests of our customers.''
Experienced Service Partner Ensures Customer Success
CreoScitex Customer Services and Solutions has installed and supports more than 2000 CTP systems worldwide. By leveraging this experience, the team helps customers derive maximum value from technology, employees, and processes.
The new Consulting Services Group will help printers manage change to the printing process, such as implementing FM and Pantone Hexachromeprinting.
CreoScitex Quality for All
"Many printers we meet with believe that CreoScitex products and services are only for very large companies. We are here to set the record straight,'' says Larry Letteney, President, CreoScitex America. "CreoScitex's launch of this most complete line of digital production solutions means one thing: if you are in the business of printing or the graphic arts, CreoScitex can tailor a digital solution that will make you far more profitable and competitive.
CreoScitex is also expanding its sales team for greater service to the general commercial printer. CreoScitex Financial Services arranges affordable leasing terms for CreoScitex systems.
This allows the broad commercial printer to face the daily challenges of business with the industry's best technology for reasonable monthly outlays.
