Prepress Training Solution’s Graph Expo Sales/Inquiries Up 150% Over Last Year
Press release from the issuing company
Bloomington, IN -- October 29, 2004 -- The Prepress Training Solution division of StaffingTools, Inc., a leading provider of online training, reports record Graph Expo tradeshow results. Sales and inquiries tallied from the annual graphic arts/printing conference and expo held in Chicago October 10-13 outpaced last year’s results by 150%.
According to Julie Jankowski, VP of Strategic Development, “Within two days, we had exceeded total sales leads received last year at the show. We attribute the increased interest to our expanded services, new marketing campaign, and growing acceptance of online training as the most cost-effective and viable training solution.”
Publishers and printers migrating to new operating platforms or software as well as those who have reduced internal training departments were, according to Jankowski, the vast majority of visitors to the Prepress Training Solution exhibit. “They have an immediate need for training as a solution to disrupting workflow and production.”
The Prepress Training Solution, the dedicated division of StaffingTools recently established to better meet the needs of its 4000 and growing graphic arts user base, made its official debut at Graph Expo. Sporting its new identity, logos and corporate design; and in a larger booth exhibit than last year, the company offered live presentations and demonstrations, as well as customer testimonials from clients including Moore Wallace, Bowne, Von Hoffmann, and DirectWest. The company also unveiled its latest online training courses, CreoPreps 5.0 and Markware FlightCheck 5.0.
