SpencerLAB Digital Color Laboratory is a Bronze Sponsor of ACUP 2014 and will be exhibiting the SpencerMETRICS system at the conference.
“The Future Looks Bright” is the theme for ACUP 14, the 49th annual Association of College & University Printers (ACUP) conference taking place at the Hilton Phoenix Mesa Hotel in Phoenix, AZ from April 6 through April 10. With it’s innovative SpencerMETRICS line of productivity tools, spencerLAB is cultivating a bright future for Productivity Intelligence.
Measure, Analyze, Improve — Productivity is crucial to reducing cost and increasing ROI. Comprehensive measurement on the press shop floor, real-time analysis in the cloud, a clear graphical presentation — that adds up to simple identification of the obstacles limiting productivity, and an intuitive path to improvement.
The patent-pending SpencerMETRICS system is a measurement and analysis tool that collects and analyzes shop-floor data, providing on-demand graphical interpretations anytime, anywhere — on a desktop, laptop, tablet, or even a smartphone. The first of its kind, this tool illuminates all press activities, highlighting those that are wasting productive time. In addition to machine performance, the tool documents human judgement such as unacceptable print quality, wrong color profiles, or incorrect media as well as pre-press errors, media problems, etc.
Compare shifts, workflow periods, multiple presses, multi-site press groups — even of different brands. It’s that easy.
“By sharing knowledge with the academic community, we are empowering in-house print shops with tools and technology for profitable, productive, and streamlined operation; increasing their value to the college or university”, said Catherine Fiasconaro, spencerLAB's Vice President of Operations.
The SpencerMETRICS team will be at Booth #23, offering demonstrations of the system and other spencerLAB products and services. See the system and learn how to Improve your Productivity, Reduce Costs, and Increase your Value.
