InfoPrint Solutions, a Ricoh company, today announced the winners of its first annual Innovation Awards at a ceremony held at Hunkeler innovationdays, Lucerne, Switzerland, February 14 – 17th, 2011. Postel and Vesa were recognised for their ground-breaking solutions using InfoPrint 5000 inkjet printers and workflow software to deliver effective, colour precision marketing applications.
Postel has the largest installed base of InfoPrint Solutions electrophotography monochrome continuous forms technology in Europe and was the first customer in Europe to go into production with five duplex, high-speed InfoPrint 5000s. A long-standing InfoPrint Solutions customer, Postel has developed a number of innovative products and services for the Italian market for financial services institutions, telcos and the utilities sectors.
Vesa Direct became the first InfoPrint 5000 customer in Europe to exceed 1 billion colour pages. In 2007 Vesa became a pioneer in innovative precision marketing solutions when it started working with its client Telefonica to transform its transaction statements into targeted personalised communications. Vesa has continued to demonstrate its confidence in InfoPrint Solutions and its technologies.
“These customers are just two of the many commercial printers and enterprises who have adopted the InfoPrint 5000 as their colour solution of choice,” said Benoit Chatelard, Senior Vice President and General Manager, InfoPrint Solutions EMEA. “These Print Services Providers have already output billions of colour pages for some of Europe’s largest telcos, utilities and banks as these forward-thinking businesses transform their customers’ statements to effective, personalised marketing communications.”
