Toronto (Graphics Canada - Booth #3412) - November 8, 2007 - Agfa Graphics recently completed the Canadian segment of its "Agfa Stay Ahead" Road Show, a day-long seminar on industry trends and technologies specific to workflow that recently made stops in Toronto and Montreal.
Attendees were able to participate in hands-on demonstrations of Agfa workflow software, discuss various connectivity and collaboration issues, and acquire the latest information on upcoming products, including an introduction to the newest :ApogeeX release, :ApogeeX 4.0. In addition, an :Apogee Users Group meeting exclusively for :Apogee customers in Canada, met during the Road Show.
"I was anxious to see how Agfa was going to improve on an excellent product like :ApogeeX 3.5. Its new features, such as the Adobe PDF Print Engine, impressed me," said Stephane Cyr, head of prepress at Marketel McCann Erickson of Montreal. "I also appreciated the quality of the presenters and the extent of their technical knowledge."
"The Road Show provided a one-stop information session on the ever-changing printing industry. New technology can be overwhelming, but now I have a better insight on the latest software solutions," added Scott McDougall, prepress supervisor at Senton, Inc of Ontario. "It was nice to converse with experts on specific issues and receive important advice and tips."
"We started our Road Shows in 2003 when we intorduced :ApogeeX. The Road Shows help our customers by allowing them to share useful tools and tips with each other for growing their businesses and improving production," said Agfa's Deborah Hutcheson, senior marketing manager, Digital Solutions, North America. "Many of them also asked for the creation of a users group to give them additional ways to identify new opportunities and techniques. We are pleased to be able to help so many customers in this market continue to grow, prosper and meet their clients' needs."
An additional :Apogee User Group meeting is scheduled to take place during Graphics Canada at the International Centre in Toronto, November 8-10.
