The Mumbai Mudrak Sangh (MMS), in association with TechNova Imaging Systems, organized a webinar ‘Empower Jargon Made Simple’ on 7 August. Medha Virkar, past president, MMS, spoke on the importance of power costs for printers. Sandeep Guram of TechNova Imaging Systems gave an elaborate presentation on the subject.
Guram said that power bills should be paid promptly before the due date as printers can get a rebate of 1%, and if they pay after the bill due date, they are charged a 1.5% penalty and end up paying a cost of 2.5% per month.

Printers can use power during off-peak hours and plan their work shifts accordingly. He also advised printers to keep a regular tab on any variations in the bill and check the reasons for any rise in the per-unit cost.

After the presentation, there was a question and answer session moderated by Tushar Dhote, president, MMS. Shreerang Joshi, of TechNova Imaging Systems, thanked the MMS managing committee. He also took the opportunity to brief the webinar audience about the various green projects undertaken by TechNova to reduce its and the industry’s carbon footprint.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
