Monotech Systems installs Ricoh Pro C5310s at Namdev Photostat

Jaipur-based print service provider Namdev Photostat installs Ricoh Pro C5310S digital print production system. The new production system has been supplied by Monotech Systems who recently became the Indian channel partner for Ricoh APAC for marketing, distribution, and service of Ricoh digital print production systems.

Based in Vaishali Nagar of Jaipur, Namdev Photostat has been in the business of stationery and printing since 2000. It acts as a one-stop place for office stationery, school stationery, and document center covering monochrome and color printing, large format printing, lamination services, and binding. Equipped with multiple print production systems from different brands the business serves approximately 1000 customers every day.

“There was a need for the up-gradation of the existing Ricoh 5100 digital production printer with us. We were already aware of the quality, robustness of Ricoh which probably none of the products offered in this segment. Just a great thing happened that Monotech Systems came with Ricoh and I had already heard about good after-sales support of Monotech Systems in the market. Both the requirements for a robust product and strong after-sales support matched and we repeated the purchase of Ricoh keeping the quote aside from other brands. Apart from the product and support, we are getting the best FSMA rates too,” said Dhaneshwar Nama, director, Namdev Photostat.

The Ricoh Pro C5310s, built as the right-sized solution, combining a fusion of vibrant color, media handling, powerful performance, and a range of finishing options, along with professional print speeds and advanced technologies, deliver a total package at an affordable price. With superior reliability, accurate registration, and intuitive controls, it is said to be ideal for marketing agencies, in-plants, commercial printers, and franchise/pay for print environments looking for a total package — in a compact footprint matching the features of Ricoh high production printing engines.

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.
