Center stage at the international Prinect User Days 2010 was devoted to sharing ideas and knowledge, and participating in user discussions on workflow integration in general and the Prinect print shop workflow from Heidelberg in particular. Around 350 Prinect users from print shops and prepress businesses in seven countries took part in the events at the Print Media Academy in Heidelberg. As in previous years, the event was devised and hosted by a small team of representatives of various Prinect users under the motto "by users for users."
Sharing experience and ideas
Many of the workshops and discussions focused on web-to-print and its various business models. Organizational and technical challenges relating to the introduction of workflow solutions were also on the agenda, as were the very latest trends in print shop workflows. For instance, participants took part in a lively discussion about the various possibilities of process integration, the advantages of an integrated print shop, and how this integration works in practice. They also debated how to achieve optimum efficiency in color management. The program was rounded off with a panel discussion entitled "Inking up faster."
"The Prinect User Days have now established themselves as an international experience-sharing platform for Prinect users. Participants especially appreciate the blend of information on top trends in the industry, in-depth workshops, and the fact that the event is devised by people who are users themselves," explains Christopher Berti, Head of Product Management for Prinect and CtP at Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG.
