Irvine, California – Using six Mitsubishi CP-9550DW photographic printers at three locations throughout Nevada, Maverick Aviation Group has added another level of value to its helitour business and improved its bottom line. Employees can take pictures of their customers in front of the helicopters before take-off, present an aerial tour of the Grand Canyon and then provide high-quality, on-site photos immediately upon landing.
According to John Mandernach, vice president of maintenance for Maverick Aviation Group, his company is one of the largest helicopter-operating businesses in Nevada with a fleet of 34 EC130 helicopters giving tours throughout the day.
Maverick Aviation Group gives up to 40 tours a day from each of their three locations, and expects to print between 300-400 photos per day. As a high-speed, high-volume dye-sublimation printer capable of consistently printing a high number of pictures over an extended period of time with low operating costs, the Mitsubishi CP-9550DW is the perfect fit for their business.
The CP-9550DW dye-sublimation printers produce 3.5 x 5-inch photos in about 15 seconds, 4 x 6-inch photos in 16 seconds, and 5 x 7-inch photos in 32 seconds. They are available with up to 32 MB of memory for plenty of storage, and an easy-to-learn, user-friendly USB 2.0 interface.
"There are a lot of benefits to using the Mitsubishi printers," Mandernach said. "The ease of operation, ease of loading the color film cartridges and the speed are just a few. We love everything about them."
The Mitsubishi printers allow Maverick Aviation Group to instantly offer keepsakes to every customer, and in doing so, increase revenue.
"The CP-9550DW photographic printer is one of our most tried-and-true photographic printers to date," said Darla Achey, marketing specialist for Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America. "It's versatile, robust and light in weight, making it an easy selection for event photographers on the go, and the high-quality pictures make it perfect for companies like Maverick Aviation to sell on-site photos to their customers."
