bizhub PRESS C8000 Digital Presses Help Print House Improve Image Quality and Overall Productivity

Konica Minolta bizhub PRESS C8000 Color Digital Press

Since adopting the bizhub PRESS C8000 technology, we have seen sales rise dramatically and are always at maximum capacity on our color printing systems.

Konica Minolta Business Solutions (Canada) Ltd. (Konica Minolta) today announces that British Columbia-based Mail-O-Matic has improved overall work productivity and output quality with the help of six award-winning Konica Minolta bizhub® PRESS C8000 Color Digital Presses. A longtime Konica Minolta customer, Mail-O-Matic has grown their print fleet over the last 18 years to welcome Konica Minolta’s latest and most advanced technologies. The recent addition of six bizhub PRESS C8000 digital presses has enabled significant improvement in overall image quality and workflow efficiency, resulting in less waste and faster turnaround times.

A North American provider of direct marketing and mailing solutions, Mail-O-Matic has adapted to business and market growth by continuing to update its print fleet with the most innovative solutions available. The print house expanded its print fleet to include: two bizhub PRO C6501 production print systems, five bizhub PRO 1200 production print systems, and the most recent addition, in December 2011, of six bizhub PRESS C8000 color digital presses. Building upon the success of previous equipment and an excellent customer service track record with Konica Minolta, Mail-O-Matic was an early adopter of the bizhub PRESS C8000, anticipating more productivity and faster speeds. Initially purchasing two of the new digital presses, the color consistency, reliability and overall ease-of-use of the presses prompted Mail-O-Matic to increase its purchase to six C8000 color digital presses. Since purchasing the bizhub PRESS C8000s, Mail-O-Matic has not only realized faster turnaround times and more streamlined workflow, but also a drastic improvement in overall color quality. The digital presses are also capable of handling heavier stocks.

“Since adopting the bizhub PRESS C8000 technology, we have seen sales rise dramatically and are always at maximum capacity on our color printing systems,” said Scott Thomson, President, Mail-O-Matic. “When we first started out, we wanted to select a vendor with whom we could develop a longstanding partnership and Konica Minolta has truly become that partner. They have not only provided the ongoing advancements and innovation we need to remain competitive, but also offered a superior level of customer service that would be very difficult to match.”

Mail-O-Matic has also realized a reduction in waste from reliance on pre-printed forms with the adoption of the bizhub PRESS C8000 technology. The company now uses DirectSmile and Print Shop Mail Variable Data Printing (VDP) solutions to customize individual mailing pieces as necessary for different mailing campaigns. The high-quality output and flexible media handling of the bizhub PRESS C8000 now allows Mail-O-Matic to do customizing in-house and reduces the need for pre-printed stock.

“The bizhub PRESS product line has proven many times over that it is an ideal solution for high-volume environments such as Mail-O-Matic and the award-winning bizhub PRESS C8000 brings tremendous value to such customers, including productivity and workflow improvements, and enhanced overall output quality,” says Joe Velacich, senior director, Marketing Operations, Konica Minolta Business Solutions (Canada) Ltd. “VDP customers are poised to realize even greater value due to the flexibility and reliability of these digital presses. Customers such as Mail-O-Matic can count on Konica Minolta for the innovation and market-leading technologies that will keep their business competitive.”
