Successful Graph Expo for Agfa Takes Customers to New Heights
Press release from the issuing company
Ridgefield Park, NJ – October 13, 2003 – Booth traffic was high as printers sought to invest their money in solutions and services that would help them produce better, cost-effective solutions for their customers. From Agfa’s web-based production management systems :Delano Publish and :Delano Production, new releases of the :ApogeeX PDF- and JDF-based workflow, to new :Sherpa wide format ink jet digital printing and proofing solutions, customers came from far and wide to invest in their future.
Customers were wowed by Agfa’s XM (cross modulation) screening solution, :Sublima, which, along with :Delano, was deemed “Worth-a-Look” by the Executive Outlook committee. Current :Sublima users were on hand in the booth to convince future customers how they could reach new heights with :Sublima as a way to stand out from among their competitors. Agfa’s new ink jet, software and CtP solutions all showed customers a new level of productivity.
“As the leading prepress vendor, it was great to see a high level of excitement in this industry again,” said Susan Wittner, Agfa’s Marketing Director. “It looks like the industry is finally turning the corner and printers are recognizing that. They are seeking solutions and services such as Agfa’s that won’t make life harder for them, but rather easier. Agfa’s solutions for the Graphic Enterprise were very well received and our sales at the show reinforced this.”
During the show, Agfa also showed attendees JDF connectivity, a new Digital Asset Management system and remote proofing capabilities, solutions that Agfa continues to bring to the Graphic Enterprise.
