Objective

To strengthen the value of the council’s in-house print department by producing more high-volume colour print jobs.

Challenges

• Inability to meet growing demand for colour print

• Existing digital print technology lacked the productivity, output colour stability and cost-efficiency to address demand

• Requirement for print output to meet strict brand guidelines set by the council

• Too much high-volume work was being outsourced

Approach

• Enfield Council’s in-house print department has been consistently impressed with Canon’s service and support since becoming a customer in 2005.

• Looking to update its colour digital print infrastructure in 2014, the customer took part in Canon’s Business & Innovation Scan and also participated in the Essential Business Builder Program to gain a better understanding of the inhouse and colour print markets.

• Encouraged by the consultancy and guidance provided by Canon, the customer invested in new production imagePRESS technology and continues to work with Canon’s business development and account management teams to expand the business.
