Ultimate TechnoGraphics unveils part 2 of Future-Proofing Whitepaper

Ultimate TechnoGraphics, imposition and finishing automation software solutions enterprise, unveiled the second part of its popular white paper “Future-Proof your Print Business’’. Ultimate TechnoGraphics invented digital imposition with the first release of Ultimate Impostrip in 1989 and has continued to play a leading role in the market ever since while providing the most innovative and progressive imposition products.

Written by industry analyst and author David Zwang, the first part of the white paper explored market opportunity and basic workflow concepts that can help future-proof print businesses to address the market and technologically pressures on print, publishing and packaging service providers. In the second part of the white paper, Zwang presents real printers’ stories who successfully implemented a future-proofed print production, showing the sequence of events who led them to make the switch, and how every printer can get future-proofed.

Zwang warns, “The pandemic of 2020 has created some hardships but taught us some very valuable lessons. Social distancing has limited the amount of people in the same business at one time, meaning we have to do more with less. In addition to that, remote working has become part of the new normal. Creating a holistic and collaborative workflow internally and externally, and how you do business with your customers, is no longer a nice-to-have. It is a critical business decision.’’

This study-based report will give print service providers the tools to protect their business from health, economic, social and other unexpected difficulties that are happening today and in the future.

“Digitalization has already transformed the print industry, and will continue to do so in the next years’’, says Julie Watson, chief executive officer of Ultimate TechnoGraphics. “Future-proofing means looking for best in class solutions that offer scalability and flexibility. David Zwang’s whitepaper offers some great insights on what print service providers should consider when looking at future-proofing their print workflow.” Part 2 of the white paper is available for download here

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.
